Half good, half bad
8 October 2002 | by (Den Helder, Holland) – See all my reviews

Although this warstory has some fine actors: Guy Madison, Anthony Steel, John Ireland (the latter unfortunately in a VERY small part) it still isn't quite what it promises to be in the beginning; starting off excitingly in the battle between Americans and Germans in the North-African 1943-desert, we are given a sensitive portrayal of the comradeship between two enemies (a German "Hauptmann" -played very fine by Venantino Venantini- and US-Captain Madison) who meet again one year later in occupied France, so this movie is actually divided in two different stories, one in the desert and the other in Europe. However, in the second part the usual battlescenes appear and "War Devils" becomes another routine actionflick. At the end (of course) the German, who even in Italian (!) pictures obviously and finally has to be the "bad guy" gets killed by resistance men and US-soldiers. This I found very weak: once you get sympathy with Venantini, he is killed! However, all in all compared to the American efforts on warfilms this is a superiour must-see!
