We were doing just that the other night when, right in the middle of the film, our DVR failed abruptly, casting us adrift. We were really disappointed; even though this was the umpteenth time we’d seen the movie.
I resolved not to let that happen again, so I bought this DVD. Now we can watch it any time we want to. And, best of all: since we’re getting older every day, there may come a time when we won’t even remember having seen the film before. (I hope we can remember where the DVD is.)
Bottom line: If you like interesting films with great characterizations, you’ll have a hard time finding one better than this one.
The performances are all very good, & is a much bleaker movie than when I first remembered seeing it at the cinema.
It was rated as an X cert here in the UK, & I remembered thinking why? Its the final act of ruthlessness against the trapped German Officers, & Wives, that had the censor's reaching for their vapours.
A much copied movie, which probably was inspired by 'Seven Samurai', although the Author of the original novel EM Nathanson claimed he'd heard of a real life situation that inspired his story, but the series of events could not be confirmed to be true.(See the Filthy Fifteen, a real life event about scruffy demolition engineers whilst in training for the Normandy invasion). Sven Hassel's novels, also feature such scenario's.
A cornerstone, & seminal 60's war movie. Very enjoyable.
Plenty of violent action for those who like war movies. One of the best films of it's kind ever made. This all star gang of psychos war story formula has been imitated many times in subsequent films but never done better than in this one, the original.
