WHATEVER THE DIRTY DOZEN DID THEY DO IT DIRTIER!
In WWII France, a group of U.S. soldiers are headed for military prison, but they escape and eventually get a chance to redeem themselves during a mission. The film that partly inspired Quentin Tarantinos Inglourious Basterds (2009) has little in common with that “remake”. This is a simple, low-budget war movie with a few ridiculous touches (such as naked women firing automatic weapons), the expected awful performances and a very standard story.
1978-Italy. 100 min. Color. Directed by Enzo G. Castellari. Cast: Bo Svenson (Robert Yeager), Fred Williamson (Fred Canfield), Peter Hooten (Tony), Ian Bannen, Michael Pergolani, Jackie Basehart.
