The Tunnel

Posted by martinteller on June 22, 2006

A Hollywood-style (the main protagonist even bears a strong resemblance to Bruce Willis) film about a crew of people helping their loved ones escape East Germany by tunneling under the Berlin Wall.  It’s cobbled together piecemeal from various true stories, and undoubtedly some extra details were added for dramatic effect, but even if the end result isn’t 100% accurate, it’s still a damned entertaining movie.  The story trucks along beautifully and keeps you glued to your seat.  It may not break the mold as far as escape flicks go, but it’s loaded with suspense, action, and intrigue.  Rating: 8
