Excerpt: Von Ryan's Express is an enjoyable wartime actioner with a decent cast and fine production values. It's certainly no masterpiece, not being as good as The Great Escape or The Train; films which probably had an influence on the production team for this film. Something funny I'd like to note is that the a CinemaScope logo is included at the beginning of the picture, even though it was shot with Panavision lenses.
Excerpt: Very dissapointed in this blu ray. one of my favorite war films of the 60's. quality is bad. nothing like the longest day or the new patton. needs to be re done like patton was. c mon fox get it right the first time !!!!!!
