Breakout opens with slow-motion gunshot wounds and, during the film's climactic action sequence, ends with this...which looks even gorier on this new, highly vivid Blu-ray presentation.
On the positive side, the movie had some exciting stunts involving automobiles and fire. On the negative side, I didn't really care about any of the characters, since they were thinly written and/or poorly cast.
When I put together this Fake Criterion cover a few years ago, I never dreamed this 1977 Made-for-TV movie would get an actual Blu-ray release.
Corrupt / Order Of Death / Copkiller was a (mostly) blind purchase that turned out to be very satisfying. Definitely worth a repeat viewing.
The Seventies version features lost, terrorized kids being saved by the actions of an adult search party. The Thirties version is a kid saving himself and his sweetheart, through his own ingenuity, because there are no adults are there to save him.
I don't regret buying the Blu-ray set, but I think I have a clearer idea why Shout Select chose to sell the series as a combo set instead of individually. The series has a few turkeys which showcase comedic sensibilities that honestly haven't aged very well over the past thirty-to-fifty-plus years.
