"MADACY's ACTION TRIPLE FEATURE contains on a single DVD one superb, one very good and one "eh!" movie.
ESCAPE FROM SOBIBOR-- A remarkable true story of an organized escape from a Nazi concentration camp. With land mines all around and guards manning the walls, over 600 prisoners took the only practicable way out: right through the front gate, en masse! You get to meet and care for various captives and see what becomes of them during their flight to freedom. Unforgettable!
KILL CRUISE-- A captain hired by two young women to sail his small boat across the Atlantic gets involved with one of them; disaster ensues. Excellent and credible plot twists; interesting throughout.
OUT-- This is NOT a Danny Glover film! He has a peripheral role in a disjointed semi-hippieish tale of an urban guerilla who travels cross country on nebulous "missions."
