Goofs

As the Dirty Dozen fly into France in a disguised C-47, one team member asks why they did not parachute in. Major Reisman replies that they have no parachute training and would likely die trying to parachute in. 20 minutes later, after the team tries to mutiny in the French church, there is a scene in which the entire team parachutes into France.

Belated Sequel.
6 September 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Part II picks up a few months after the first(despite coming out 18 years later!) which has Lee Marvin returning as Major Reisman(older looking but still game) along with Ernest Borgnine and Richard Jaekel in their original roles. Reisman must once again recruit 12 condemned military prisoners, only this time, the group seems even less trustworthy than the first...

Belated TV sequel tries to provide a seamless transition from the first film, and almost succeeds, but plot is uninspired, even silly(stop the assassination of Hitler? Unlikely in late World War II, but OK...) Works as well as it does by the good cast(Lee Marvin is still appealing, as are Borgnine and Jaeckel). Not bad at all, but hardly necessary! Still, there would be two more TV sequels, then a series.(Which I haven't seen).
