Did You Know?


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 According to the book, Movies Made for Television, The Killers (1964) was originally made for television but ended up being released theatrically because it was thought to be too violent for TV.

The Uniform Code of Military Justice did not take effect until 1951 yet it is mentioned several times in the movie. See more »

Unfortunately for us, the "Dirty Dozen" made it out alive in this one...
14 November 1999 | by (Durham, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This movie had all the warning signs of a horribly cheesy comical re-make. Based upon "The Dirty Dozen," this almost unbearable 90 minutes of film made me almost rethink such masterpieces as Conspiracy Theory, The Blair Witch Project, and Batman and Robin. The movie itself was a mix between the worst Naked Gun humor, and a mildly serious Police Academy 7. Since it was also a "made-for-TV" movie, and since it was also a "made-for-TV" movie comedy, it is among the very cheesiest of the cheesy. So be warned, and watch out for Sonny Landham who played Billy in Predator.Particular attention should be payed to the German scene, which was one of the cheesy-funny scenes in the movie. But as a rule, avoid most movies with "The Next Mission" in the title, or comedies made for TV.

Hopefully this was the Dirty Dozen's last mission, or rather the "Baker's Dozen's" last mission!
