Trivia

The character of Major John Reisman played by Lee Marvin in The Dirty Dozen (1967) and The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission (1985) does not appear in this movie nor in the next "Dirty Dozen" TV movie sequel, The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission (1988). His character was replaced by the character of Major Wright for these two movies and is played by Telly Savalas. Savalas had appeared in the original The Dirty Dozen (1967) movie as Archer Maggott where his character was killed-off. See more »

Goofs

The dartboard at the "girls-school" is hung incorrectly. It should have 20 straight upwards (at 12 o'clock), but instead 20 is about in the 7 o'clock position. See more »

It's worth a look.
2 July 2006 | by (Sauk City, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Surprisingly good and fairly entertaining thriller as Telly Savalas (who had appeared in the original as one of the twelve convicts not to mention one of the most menacing members of the group) takes over as Wright, the new officer chosen by General Worden (Ernest Borgnine) to recruit and train twelve convicts (Randall "Tex" Cobb, Gary Graham, and Bo Svenson among the bunch that are selected for the operation) to attack and destroy several containers of nerve gas hidden in a French monestary and bail out the six scientists who are developing the gas under the close watch of the German SS.

I'll admit that I did like the "Deadly Mission" a lot better than its' predecessor and there's a few reasons (the performances are respectable, the plot twists some of which are slick, and the characters are actually interesting) to back it up. This movie is worth a look.
