4.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD of two obscure Euro-war films. May 10, 2009
Verified Purchase
The Euro-war film genre. A genre that sadly has been severely overlooked when it comes to Region 1 DVD releases (much like the Euro-Spy genre). With the recent release of The Inglorious Bastards from Severin Entertainment hopefully all this will change. Until then we have this Wild East double feature to tide us over.

This DVD contains two films: Churchill's Leopards and Salt in the Wound. The first film, Churchill's Leopards, has a wonderful transfer but sadly this is pretty hum-drum film. We have an Allie infiltrator that takes over his brothers identity with the Nazis so he can and a group of commandos can blow up a dam before D-Day. The plot really reminds me of the disappointing film Force 10 from Naverone but that was made 8 years later so it makes me wonder if the writers were inspired by the Alistair MacLean novel. Klaus Kinski sleepwalks through his role as German captain making me wonder if he just did the film for a paycheck. The only problem with the transfer of this film is two instances of audio dropout towards the beginning of the film during the briefing scene. The dropouts are very short so it's not a big problem at all.

The second film Salt in the Wounds is the far better film. Sadly the films transfer is taken from beat up sources. This film has two American GIs (Klaus Kinski playing one of them) who are about to be executed when a German force attacks. They escape with a fresh captain (George Hilton) and through their distrust along the way of trying to stay alive, they all find their humanity. This film is more primal, with exhilarating action scenes and and better acting. Again sadly the film elements used for the transfer are rather beat up. It's not too distracting from enjoying the film though.

So there you go.

British commandos parachute into Nazi-occupied France before the June 6th Allied invasion scheduled for Normandy against Fortress Europe to destroy a dam in Maurizio Pradeaux's above-average World War II secret mission movie "Churchill's Leopards," toplining expatriate American leading man Richard Harrison and German character actor Klaus Kinski. Pradeaux's serious-minded, behind-enemy-lines thriller duplicates the familiar line-up of events that inevitably culminate in the pyrotechnics at the dam at the end of the film. The chief problem here is the hackneyed gimmick of identical twin brothers on which the plausibility of the mission rests and mediocre special effects when the dam is blown to smithereens. "Churchill's Leopards" generates sufficient suspense to keep you interested. The two chief flaws are its paucity of surprises and its cookie-cutter characters bereft of any memorable characteristics.

Italian peplum/Spaghetti western actor Richard Harrison plays dual roles in this Macaroni war movie. He is cast capably enough as both British Army lieutenant Richard Benson and German Wehrmacht officer Hauptman Hans Muller. We are told that Benson and Muller were the sons of a British father and a German mother. The mother ardently supported the policies of Adolf Hitler before she died.

Pradeaux immerses audiences with black & white, documentary World War II footage to establish the proper mood. As the movie opens, a sexy female French Resistance agent stabs Muller to death while he is making love to her in bed. Interestingly, Pradeaux doesn't show the cold, hard steel of the knife plunging into the German's flesh. Moments later, Benson steps into his death brother's boots with a twinge of regret. Later, he is informed that nobody could have been done to prevent Muller's death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome double feature November 3, 2009
Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this pair of flicks. While most reviewers here seem to like Salt in the Wound better, I actually preferred Churchill's Leopards. Pretty entertaining pair of movies whichever of the two you prefer. Kinski is pretty great in both.

My copy is safe from being traded at Half Price Books; coming from me that's a fair recomendation...
