Good movie saw it when it first came out and was interested in seeing it again. A very good movie however I can understand why it never go any awards.
Great movie; great action!
Greatest movie ever!
"What we've got here is a failure... to communicate"
one of the greatest lines in motion picture history.
Such a wild ride of a movie.

A new criminal in a Florida state prison facing a 4-year sentence, the movie's premise is based on the gallantry of Luke when being incarcerated by the malfeasance of the guards and warden. Released in 1967, this movie still holds up today as surprisingly entertaining, receiving an Academy award and good reviews in IMDB.

Paul Newman classic! A decorated war veteran turns to petty crime/mischief and ends up on the chain gang in some Southern prison. Paul Newman is excellent in this film and there are several memorable scenes - especially the egg eating contest! Great group of actors; George Kennedy (won best supporting actor academy award), Harry Dean Stanton, Ralph Waite and Dennis Hopper, but Newman is the star. As someone in the bonus extras says the story is about an alienated man who becomes an existential hero - great summary. Cool Hand Luke never quits or gives up, he inspires and invigorates his fellow prisoners. He frustrates his prison "bosses" and there is always a "failure to communicate." Great film if you have never seen it and even better if it has been a long while since you've seen it.
One of the films this country should be proud about. Excellent and timeless! Be sure to also indulge in the special features on the disc - the commentary by historian/Newman biographer Eric Lax and a documentary, "A Natural-Born World-Shaker: Making Cool Hand Luke".
"I can eat 50 eggs."
"Sometimes nothing's a pretty cool hand."
