Goofs

At the end of the film when the last German soldier is shooting at Lt. Hoffmen, he fires several continuous shots with a Mauser bolt-action rifle, without moving the bolt after each shot. It would be impossible to fire a bolt-action rifle without moving the bolt after each shot to eject the spent casings. See more »

Great WWII Italian Action picture
12 March 2006 | by sethwallace326See all my reviews

I found 'Five For Hell' immensely enjoyable. I purchased it for .79 cents on amazon marketplace and anxiously awaited it's arrival. When I saw this film I was consuming large amounts of bourbon and I must say, this greatly increased the enjoyment of what is unfairly called 'The Worst film ever made" by the previous reviewer. If you are a fan of fun, guys on a mission type War films, which avoid dramatic elements, and are loaded with excellent action sequences; then 'Five For Hell' is just the ticket. This film is not high art by any means. And for the record it is done in the vein of most Italian Exploitation/Action/War flicks. Pick this baby up and stop off at your local liquor, gun store. I suggest bourbon and shotgun and at least 3,000 rounds of ammunition. I would also suggest Castellari's 'Ingolorious Bastards' if you find this film appealing.
