Rated PG, Circa 1975.

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.


When DVD-Rs Disappear

As a Friedkin fan, I was interested in this film the moment I first read about its impending theatrical release in late ’87. I bought the Ennio Morricone soundtrack on LP, the William P. Wood novel upon which the film was based, even going so far as to buy a $20 copy of Friedkin’s shooting script.
