Product Description

Italian WWII drama. A group of American soldiers are in the process of being shipped off to military prison for a variety of infractions, ranging from desertion to murder. While they are being transported, a German artillery attack hits the convoy, killing the MPs and enabling four of the prisoners to escape. The group decides their best bet is to head to neutral Switzerland, where they can avoid both the fighting and prison. As they make their way to what they think will be freedom, they end up volunteering for a commando mission to steal a V2 warhead for the French Underground.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Thanks to the odd impressive matte shot and a skilful marshalling of its limited resources, Enzo Castellari's Inglorious Bastards doesn't look cheap even if the same extras keep on getting killed in every action scene, but despite Quentin Tarantino's slavish devotion it's more Garrison's Guerrillas than the Dirty Half-Dozen. Castellari's heroes are a standard issue group of American military prisoners: black marketer (Michael Pergolani), would-be mobster (Peter Hooten), coward (Jackie Basehart), proud black man who got tired of taking s*** (Fred Williamson), mildly sympathetic disillusioned German deserter to avoid offending the lucrative German market (Raimund Harmstorf) and the obligatory cocky but heroic one who got busted for using his fighter plane as a taxi for dates across the English Channel in his downtime (Bo Svenson). Naturally their plan to make a break for the border when they're waylaid en route to the stockade by some Nazi planes naturally ends up with them embarking on a mission vital to the success of the war (admittedly only after inadvertently killing some of their own side), but then this is a film that exists purely to do only what's expected of it rather than offer any unwelcome surprise. Sure, there's the odd spin on some of the old favorites, but there aren't nearly enough naked women with machine guns to truly lift it above the formulaic.

Dialogue isn't exactly sparkling - "All Americans are mongrels... and your women are whores!" - and half the cast are dubbed anyway (Ian Bannen's Scottish tones are replaced by an American actor and Hooten by what sounds like John Dall), but the film does its job even if it's more supporting feature than main event.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and action packed 18 April 2012
By LoBo
Format:Blu-ray
I like this Action/War film. I like the action scenes and story. Starring the charismatic Peter Hooten and Fred Williamson. I think those plays their roles nicely. Surprisingly not so violent, for a Italian Action film. I was suprised by how little squibs the used. I guess they wanted to save the small precious money they had and decided to use it only when necessary. I like this kind of film. I will for sure watch it many times.

Picture quality: 4/5

I find the actual picture quality pretty good for thi low budget film. In my opinion, there was a bit too much DNR used in this film. The contrast looks a bit boosted compared to the DVD. Not the best quality i have ever watched, but could have looked better with no DNR.

Audio quality: 4/5

Yes, the English dub in LPCM 2.0 dual Mono had surprisingly good quality. Yes, gunshot effects doesn`t have any bass at all, but at least it did sound reasonable clear and loud. I remember the music also sounded nice. The American Blu-ray only have DD: 5.1 and DD: 2.0. So, this is the best edition on Blu-ray market. It`s the best it has sounded and looked on home video, that`s for sure.

Film: 4/5
Overall: 4/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 70s Spaghetti Western styled WWII movie 14 Aug 2009
Format:DVD
I have to say I did only buy this as I saw it on sale quite cheaply but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a proper low budget shoot 'em up set during World War II, a kind of low rent version of the Dirty Dozen. The plot is a little bit messy but there's plenty of things going on so you never get bored. There is a real sense of fun about this which sets it apart from the current trend of war movies to be very 'war is hell' and I found that quite refreshing. It gets four stars from me because I thoroughly enjoyed it. The extra feature with Tarantino interviewing the director of this is quite fun too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action!! Action!!, Action!! 3 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
One of the greatest war films of the seventies. Ok it owes one hell of a lot to Robert Aldrich's "The Dirty Dozen" but for sheer outrageous shoot outs, stunts and all out action this beats any other seventies war film into a cocked hat. The story is your typical war time yarn. A bunch of super tough soldiers who have been arrested for various crimes, escape only to find themselves caught up in a mission to attack a german train.
Bo Svenson (looking super cool) leads the men, with blaxploitation god Fred Williamson as his second in command. The transfer on offer here ain't the best but it is quite good, also extras are thin on the ground. But buy this just for the sheer scope and bravado of the production. If you love war films it's a must see. There is also a rumour going round that Tarantino loves this films and might even remake it!!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dirty Dozen(ish) Italian Style 2 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
WW2.Five U.S Army personnel(Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson among them)due for the stockade take advantage of a german attack to escape.They survive several skirmishes until they accidentally kill an elite squad posing as german officers whose mission is to hijack a train and remove a vital component from a Nazi rocket.Needless to say they take that squad's place and under the command of Colonel Buckner(Ian Bannen)they attempt to carry out the mission.
Surprisingly enjoyable,time has been kind to this b-movie war picture.Sure the dubbing is obvious but it is not that intrusive,the acting is variable(Williamson gives it that neat 'ploitation selling point and the hammy Svenson is pleasingly dignified as the flyer with an attitude)and the pace fairly rattles along.Castellari allows for little in the way of story lulls and the action sequences are plentiful and very well staged.Okay there are one too many machine gun sprays that kill six nazi's in a line but after a while that becomes a kind of running gag and call me old fashioned but watching actors(and some enterprising stuntmen) falling off fast moving trains and doing other hair raising stuff is a lot of fun.
Hopefully more people will find this forgotten low budgeter in the wake of Tarantino's "remake" and you can be sure of one thing,Catellari's version will be a lot shorter and probably more fun.
Decent print with the only extra a conversation between Castalleri and Tarantino.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull
Having seen the later version I found this 'original' deadly dull. So boring that I skipped a lot of it in the vain hope that it might improve and then gave it to a charity shop.
