It's the basic Dirty Dozen story. A ragtag bunch go on a mission. And overall, meh. The ending is epic, but the journey there is stale. The only decent parts besides that, are the assembling of the group, all members standing in a hangman's noose as they are offered the job. The other is a scene where the men (in Confederate uniforms) tell a southern town that the South has won, causing dancing in the streets. Original rating: 30% ------------------------------------------------------------ The above above was written on 12/13/12. The following review was written 5/9/13 So when I first saw this movie, it was around two in the afternoon in the middle of the summer. Which means I had just woken up when I had decided to watch it on TV. Not commercial free TV. Local TV. Which probably didn't help my original opinion. Yes, as the younger me stated, it IS The Dirty Dozen formula, in all of it's glory. The acting is very well done, James Coburn and Bud Spencer proving to be amazing actors. I stated the journey in between recruiting the men, and the final battle was stale. Oh how wrong was I! It was great! Full of deception, clever lines, and overall entertaining scenes. It was commercial free too, bought it on a DVD of "12 Western Classics," at the store. The picture quality was also very good, far superior to the TV version. New (and improved) rating: 90%
