Goofs

At the end of the film when the last German soldier is shooting at Lt. Hoffmen, he fires several continuous shots with a Mauser bolt-action rifle, without moving the bolt after each shot. It would be impossible to fire a bolt-action rifle without moving the bolt after each shot to eject the spent casings. See more »

My name is Hoffman, pray for your death
12 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

I love Italian film but their sixties war films can be a bit of a slog (compared to the Last Hunter and Strike Commando in the eighties), however, this one has a good bit of style, and a few actors who are always fun to watch.

Also, Klaus Kinski is in this, but he actually has a substantial part! Sit down for this, right, but he's playing a German bad guy who is a bit crazy. Gianni Garko on the other hand is a hard-arse GI out to steal plans from a safe with his team, consisting of Sal Borghese! Giovanni Frezza (I think that's his name), and two other guys, one of which looks like Guillano Gemma, is a acrobat like Guillano Gemma, but is not Guillano Gemma. Strange.

This dirty half a dozen minus one head towards this villa occupied by Kinski, and a double crossing agent called Helga. That's really the plot, to be honest. It's fun though, and has a bit of style as it's made by that guy who made that Sartana film.

I'd also add though however that this IS a sixties Italian war film, and they really kind of follow a formula.
