The escape plan is masterminded by Roland. I am pretty sure he's a ninja. He hides from the guards with another man standing on his shoulders, and manages to lightly step around a pillar to avoid them. He also Macgyvers a periscope out of a toothbrush and mirror. He also makes dummies out of cardboard parts.

I do like how the movie has no music. It provides realism and increases the suspense of whether they get caught by the guards. However, the suspense is greatly lessened because my daughter is sitting on my lap singing, so everyone's movie experience is different.
People back then were a lot skinnier than they are today. Try remaking this movie in 2013 America. Not happening. The realism of the film was impressive though and gets a 7/10. The prisoners were so careful not to get caught. However, they spent days digging in a concrete tunnel. Did they really expect the guards not to hear them?
