The ultimate "men on a mission" war movie, the Dirty Dozen is a brutal and action packed humdinger of a blockbuster.
An almost legendary cast of Hollywood hard men (some of whom had actually fought in the war) have a blast as the murderers, rapists and psychopaths sent on a suicide mission behind German lines.
Knocking all conformities into a hat, the Dirty Dozen betrays the heroics portrayed in earlier made American movies and introduces us to U.S soldiers as Ruthless and vicious as their German counterparts.
Violent, cynical and anti establishment to be sure but also immensely energetic, bold and incredibly entertaining.
