The usually unemotive Eastwood is more engaged than usual, clearly having a whale of a time with a fruity support cast.

Even with Eastwood in the title role, this poorly scripted film would surely have fallen apart under the weight of its own heavy handedness were it not for the presence of Donald Sutherland.

An attempt to blend the war epic and the caper film that doesn't quite come off.
November 19, 2013
The action is flashy and intermittent, deliberately wallowing in a mire of revisionist grot, churned up vistas of European mud. Time has made it more intuitive and caustic a film, than its daft reputation might suggest.

A terrific guys-on-a-mission movie.

This humorous, lively, and entertaining picture could be described as a caper film set against a WW II backdrop.

...the filmmakers clearly intended the movie to be a carefree caper, and if one views it that way, it can pass an entertaining few hours.

A strange but mostly satisfying hybrid of WWII actioner and anti-war satire... [Blu-ray]
October 18, 2008
Nearly satirical in its overall effect, plot caroms between cliche dogface antics, detailed and gratuitous violence, caper melodramatics, and outrageous anachronism.

Much fun amongst WWII w/Eastwood, Savalas, Sutherland, and Rickles.
December 31, 2006
It was too crudely done to have much effect as satire.
February 9, 2006
Interesting only in so far as it reveals Eastwood's nonchalant attitude to the blockbuster.

Isn't really about the Second World War, but rather about the senselessness of the Vietnam War . . .
November 20, 2003
Kelly's Heroes" is a movie that tries hard to be something for everyone and succeeds mostly at being uneven and long.
November 6, 2003
Very entertaining war movie with just the right touch of Vietnam-era cynicism

One of the best WWII films ever made.
