Goofs

As depicted, the electric fence would not work. It was also unrealistically tall, but my guess that was done to help with the gymnastic component of the film. See more »

Alternate Versions

The actors portraying German characters spoke German with Italian subtitles, or have had their voices dubbed-in by German-speaking actors, also with Italian subtitles. The American release has the actors portraying American characters speaking English, whose voices have been dubbed in by English-speaking actors. The actors portraying Germans have had their voices dubbed in English in most cases. Occassionally, in the German sequences, the Italian subtitles remain in place of dubbed voices.

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.
