Derek Adams (Time Out) said:
"Worth seeing the last half hour, if nothing else, for one of the best stunt sequences in years: McQueen's motor-cycle bid for freedom."
Bosley Crowther (New York Times) said:
"It's a strictly mechanical adventure with make-believe men."
Ian Nathan (Empire Magazine) said:
"It's all based on the true escape plan from Stalag Luft North, and cinema, bank holidays and life in general would be vastly inferior without it."
