1998 Bad remake of the dirty dozen
14 April 2001 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Doesn't anyone in the movie business have an original thought in their head. This movie was a pathetic remake of the Dirty Dozen (with jets, of course.) It was so formula it was laughable. I still can't tell whether it was being played for laughs or it was just that pathetic. The writers have obviously never spent a day in uniform, or for that matter have never talked to anyone who was in the service. Like the Government would condone sending misfits and morons to save the world from the Evil mustachioed 4th Stooge. Give me a break!
