“Victory” Scores Again
On February 7, 2015, The Sunday Express posted their top five soccer films in a piece by Stefan Kyriazis. Here’s what they said about Escape to Victory:
Escape To Victory (1981)
Bizarre late 1970s teaming of footballing superstars (Pele, Bobby Moore), Hollywood stars (Michael Caine and Sylvester Stallone) and Ipswich Town players as a ragtag team of POWs taking on the Nazis in an exhibition match.
Stallone stars as the goalie.
When he asked if he could score the winning goal in the final match, someone had to explain that it wouldn’t really work that way in real life.
A Hollywood remake of the film is on the cards.
