Clint Eastwood plays a new inmate at Alcatraz, a prison where no one had previously succeeded in escaping. Since he's not happy with his new accommodations and especially the warden, he plans his escape.
The movie goes a little slowly, but it never loses your interest. The slow-burn approach works very well, and it helps to build tension.
