Dregors the sniper, armed with a scoped rifle, and Major Reisman confer as to the range of the sniper's shot and agree that it is around 70 yards. Not only is a 70 yard kill well within the range of any basic infantryman with a standard rifle using iron sights, 70 yards is within the range of a competent US army pistol marksman. No need for Dregors and his sniper skill. See more »
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.'
