This is no ordinary football match. This is war! The battlefield: a stadium in occupied Paris. The armies: German all-stars vs. ragtag Allied POWs. The objective: demonstrate another ‘proof’ of Aryan superiority. Guess who wins? Better yet, guess who cleverly uses the match as a means of escape? Sylvester Stallone, Michael Caine and Max Von Sydow star in this rouser directed by the legendary John Huston. The climactic match is a heart-in-the-throat, hat-in-the-air exhibition of brute force and balletic grace featuring soccer legends Pele, Bobby Moore, Osvaldo Ardiles, Co Prins, Mike Summerbee and more. Score a splendid entertainment goal for Escape To Victory!
