This is a sequel to movie from 1985 HK Deserters" . The heroes from the first movie also appear here , but there is plenty of new heroes . The first movie was a war comedy about a group of friends running away from army . This one is supposed to be a war comedy about stealing gold from Nazi's.
It was supposed to be comedy . Unfortunately the movie takes itself way too seriously . The movie unnecessary tries to tell something about anti-Semitism , betrayal and courage of freedom fighters. For more than half of the movie is hard to tell that this is comedy . When the so-called jokes appear in the second half of the movie they so awful you will groan. The movie also feels too long (it's 2 hours long ) , which wasn't a problem in the first movie (which was almost 3 hours long) . Gone is the charm and the fun of original.
The acting is good and the music is very jolly . Still , it's too little to save the movie from being a disaster. I give it 2/10. Better watch "Kelly's heroes". Or the original "HK Deserters".
