Messy, poorly done film should have been called Movie Without Reason to Exist
28 August 2009 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Incredibly messy Italian war film about a British officer taking his men across the desert on some mission or another. The film looks to have been put together in an uncaring manner with the actors looking more like they were pulled off a street in Rome rather than having gone through British training (scenes like the pasta eating one will do nothing to dissuade you from thinking otherwise). The sets and props seem to have been put together by taking what ever was at hand at the time and using that. Its so bad that one can't really be sure if it was suppose to be serious or a comedy. In either case you're laughing at the serious bit and sitting stone faced at the "humor". The action, when it happens, is good, but there isn't enough of it and it seems more like brief respites between stretches of boredom. My opening line about one mission or another is the truth, I really didn't know what was going on because I stopped caring enough to remember what was the point of it all. This is a bunch of over fed actors driving about in jeeps, occasionally shooting guns and behaving (and performing) badly. While I can't fault producers from throwing films together to get some money on what ever trend was big in cinemas at any moment I can't help but feel that it's the sum total of poor films like this that diminished the opinion of people toward various action/horror/ comedy films that that country put out. As Euro-war and Italian war films in particular go, this is one of the worst and least interesting
