RANGERS ATTACK AT HOUR X is a late-stage Italian WW2 movie that shares a cast and crew with other familiar entries in this sub-genre. The storyline involves a mixed group of prisoners (mostly Americans) in a Nazi prisoner of war camp who have a major on a secret mission thrown into their mix. He and a handful of men must escape and destroy a secret Nazi base in the woods without any of the guards realising.

This is a sluggish story lacking in the kind of frenzied action that we expect from the genre, which means that it's a film that's largely uninteresting to sit through. Much of the screen time consists of characters sitting around in the prisoner of war camp and chatting, and the badly dubbed dialogue doesn't really add up to much.

When the action hits it's quite good, and RANGERS ATTACK AT HOUR X does boast a decent climax with some over the top acting and melodrama. In addition, there are plenty of familiar faces in the cast, although I didn't much care for the wooden lead, Dale Cummings. Luciano Catenacci and in particular Franco Ressel as a creepy Nazi captain are much better. This is still a pretty lousy entry in the sub-genre, though.
