Television movie debut for Lee Marvin. This is despite appearing in a number of television series episodes and the movie The Killers (1964). According to the book, Movies Made for Television, The Killers (1964) was originally made for television but ended up being released theatrically because it was thought to be too violent for TV.

Nearly twenty years after the original, Major Reisman again played by Lee Marvin gets assigned a new gang of G.I. convicts for another mission. If this had to be made why did it have to be done with the Reisman character. Lee Marvins age clearly showed which hurt the picture. Then to make matters even worse Ernest Borgnine and Richard Jaeckel reprise their roles from the 1967 film. Unlike the original the convicts are colorless, the mission pointless and the end cartoonish. Watch the original and consider the story ended when Charles Bronsons Joseph Wladislaw says at the conclusion `Killing Generals could get to be a habit with me.'
