Action , suspense and entertainment with a band of escaped WWII POW fighting nasty Nazis, 28 March 2007
Author: ma-cortes

1944 , five convict soldiers (Peter Hooten, Fred Williamson , Basehart , Pergolani) in WWII France led to martial court escape from lock-up and head to Switzerland . They are commanded by a con-lieutenant (Bo Svenson) . They then mistakenly attack an allied command suited as Nazis . Posteriorly , the motley gang are assigned by an Allied colonel (Ian Bannen) pull off a daring assault on a Nazi-held stronghold . To add intrigue , a female (Debra Berger) and French resistance (Michael Constantine) have joined the ranks of the rag-tag , tough outfit ; besides a rebel Nazi (Raimund Harmstorf )also has infiltrated the band . After that , they participate on a suicidal task to thwart the Nazi schemes by blowing up a train containing V2 head-rockets in a decisive battle for winning the war .

The movie packs noisy action , slow motion explosion , shootouts , bombing and is quite amusing . It's well-made war-action/thriller/adventure/ Eurotrash film , it is a standout in its genre : ¨The Spaghetti-Italian warlike¨ . Relentless plot twists ,in spite of some flaws , the warlike action keep you breathless . Rough , elegant Bo Svenson is well as the group leader of the motley pack , he leads the misfit band of crooks from behind enemy lines . Remainder cast formed by Fred Williamson , Constantine , Debra Berger (William Berger's daughter) and Peter Hooten as an assassin convict are nice . The film takes part from American classic movies , just like :¨Dirty dozen¨ ,¨ Kelly's heroes¨ and ¨ Where the eagles dare¨ but is actually its origin an Italian movie in similar plot , titled ¨ Hell commandos¨ (1969) .

Inglorious bastards¨ had a special remake directed by Quentin Tarantino . In the interview for an 'extra' in the re-release of the film on DVD Enzo G. Castellari points out that several scenes had to be re-scripted and/or shot differently as during filming the Italian Government, in response to increasing activity by the terrorist Red Brigade, drafted a law prohibiting the holding of weapons in case they fell into Red Brigade hands . The castle rescue scenes originally featured a massive shoot out, but were rewritten into the covert attack and escape featured, using knives, catapults and crossbows instead of firearms . The scene where Bo Svenson's character shoots the guards in the train lab was shot differently with a single squib at the end of the fake MP40 in the long shot, followed by a zoom into Bo's face with the sound of gunfire dubbed . Enzo G. Castellari threw spent rounds into shot to maintain the illusion of the weapon firing with the set electrician waving his hand in front of a lamp to simulate muzzle flash . The picture was professionally directed by Enzo Girolami Castellari who previously had made another good war film : ¨Eagles over London¨ . Besides , he usually worked with Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson (who is even named as a co-writer on screenplay on deposit at the Copyright Office) in Italian B films such as ¨Delta Force commando¨ ,¨Deadly impact¨, ¨ Tides of war¨ ,¨Bronx warriors¨, and ¨Warriors of the wasteland¨ .
