Good cast and music can't help this truly awful film
13 August 2004 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Well, I probably ain't telling you too much new since the other reviews have thoroughly slammed this dreadful war comedy with no war and no comedy... just a bunch of stupid characters in G.I. uniforms running around stupid. Though the ending has a couple amusing bits, this film is all-round laugh-free with the awful attempts at comedy coming right away. Also it's completely historically inaccurate, with Americans up against Italian soldiers on mainland Italy and no mention of Germans anywhere (even though the Italy was knocked out of the Axis (and the war) by the time the Americans were fighting their way up the mainland.

What should be noted though is that Franco Micalizzi's music is really good - one of his best non-crime movie scores. I actually thought it's a better score than he made for his previous war film of the decade, THE LAST HUNTER.

It's actually a lot like THE GREATEST BATTLE, maybe a bit better, and it's a thumping and attention-grabbing score, but doesn't belong in an awful film like this.

The cast is also a real pleaser - like Bobby Rhodes as a narcoleptic soldier, Ivan Rassimov in a silly Indian wig, Giuliano Gemma, Sal Borgese and Riccardo Pizzuti re-teamed after THE BATTLE OF EL ALAMEIN as Italian soldiers, plus Vincent Gardenia, Jacques Herlin, Mickey Knox, Johnny Dorelli, Jackie Baseheart (a sad step down from THE INGLORIOUS BASTARDS), and even the razor-wielding psycho from WOMEN'S PRISON MASSACRE, Pierangelo Pozzato, as a random US officer... while you say Potato, I say POZZATO. Actually, his role is quite disappointing in this film.

However, be very very warned. The comedy in this film is dreadful beyond the point where even Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill could scarcely imagine.
