This is the only "Dirty Dozen" movie (i.e. of the original The Dirty Dozen (1967) movie and its three television tele-movie sequels) that doesn't have an African-American as one of the Dirty Dozen. See more »

Goofs

The dartboard at the "girls-school" is hung incorrectly. It should have 20 straight upwards (at 12 o'clock), but instead 20 is about in the 7 o'clock position. See more »

Deadly and Fatal make a great double feature
23 October 2006 | by solar12See all my reviews

I highly recommend picking up the two Dirty Dozen double feature DVD sets. The first one includes the classic 1967 film The Dirty Dozen with it's 1985 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Next Mission. There's also a documentary on the making of the original Dirty Dozen and a historical documentary on the real life Filthy Thirteen. The other double feature DVD contains the 1987 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission and it's 1988 made for television sequel Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission. Fatal and Deadly make an affordable DVD package that is infinitely re-watchable and highly entertaining if you don't take 'em too seriously. There's plenty of humor and action in this double feature. It's a great way to spend a few hours kicking back with a quality beverage. Give the Deadly Mission / Fatal Mission double feature DVD a spin.
