Format: DVD
Well, maybe not ‘dozens,’ but here’s a few at least...

1. It’s a war movie which doesn’t really contain an awful lot of ‘war’ stuff, meaning that fans of the genre will appreciate it as much as those who aren’t into the Second World War
2. The stellar cast. Okay, so some of the twelve prisoners conscripted into Lee Marvin’s secret task force aren’t that memorable, but there are plenty who are... Charles Bronson and Telly Savalis to name but two.
3. Naturally, a great cast produces great performances. There’s no room for a ‘weakest link’ here.
4. Everyone roots for the ‘antihero.’ And here we not only have twelve convicted felons to cheer on, but also their leader – the allegedly pure Lee Marvin – is also as prone to ‘rule-breaking’ as his new charges
5. Black humour. Yes, there may be a war on, but there are a handful of light-hearted moments dotted about here and there that to lighten the tone enough.
6. It’s epic. The two hours it runs for don’t feel like it.
7. It doesn’t pull any punches. As I said... there is a war on and you may find yourself grinning one minute before being completely horrified by the level of brutality that transpired during the historical period.
8. One hell of a tense finale – when the mission comes, it’s worth the wait. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as you cheer all your newfound antiheros on.

Basically, ‘The Dirty Dozen’ is a war film that’s more akin to simply being put in the ‘action’ bracket, rather than classed as a straight ‘war film.’ The mission never actually happened. This film is total fiction. But there’s always that feeling at the back of your mind regarding how, although it never transpired, it probably very well nearly did.

You don’t have to be a war film fan to enjoy this, just enjoy a mismatched bunch of rag-tag antiheros, working together (and sometimes against each other!) on a mission to kill Nazis.

The perfect gift for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker
This is another one of those excellently-crafted movies you see sometimes which successfully romanticizes something that in reality would have been a very repellent business, and moreover does so in spite of a seriously implausible plot premise. As anybody with any experience with real screw-ups of the the variety featured in this movie knows, the chances of getting consistently constructive work, much less making useful members of team of much of the human material available here, and even under the least stressful of conditions, is right at about zero, and as true war history buffs know, the kinds of real-life efforts that inspired the raid that forms the basis of this offering have been manned and carried out without the need to descend the extreme depicted here.

That said, however, the American imagination, which has proved it can swallow anything from children's dolls possessed by evil spirits to Santa Claus alive and well and living in a Long Island retirement home (and even to any number of overwrought, incompetent buffoons seeking high office), can easily digest this one, and once it does you have a meticulously written narrative with excellent dialog expertly performed by an appealing cast led perfectly by Lee Marvin, who was just perfect in his role. I thought that apart from the plot premise the writing was so superb that it was a shame that the original premise was not altered somewhat to make it as believable as much of the rest of story and dialog are.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Dirty Dozen holds up surprisingly well even if it is one of the few war movies where the basic training section is better than the mission itself - but that might have something to do with the fact that Robert Aldrich ensures that it's a pretty dirty and sordid business amid the more expected heroics. It's a strikingly good looking film, well photographed and designed, and while it lacks the go-for-broke cynicism of Aldrich's Too Late the Hero or Attack!, it's still a striking subversive antidote to the traditional Hollywood war movie. The recent 2-disc DVD is a great improvement on the previous release, not least because it's in the right ratio this time (the previous release was cropped to 2.35:1). The group audio commentary is intermittently interesting, but Dale Dye's self-important contributions are less welcome than the cast and crew, as he shows his ignorance of film history of the era while talking up himself at almost every turn: it's a shame the commentary isn't indexed so you can skip him and get back to people with a better idea of what they're talking about. Still, the vintage 60s featurette of the Dozen hanging out in London's 'happening' Kings Road is a hoot, and I never tire of hearing that story about how Trini Lopez found himself written out of the movie...

The first of the TV movie sequels, The Deadly Mission, is also included on the disc, and limp stuff it is too. Looking like it was shot on the cheap entirely around the same railway station in a rainy August, it rehashes huge chunks of dialog from the first film, recited with a notable lack of enthusiasm by a visibly bored Lee Marvin who knows this isn't worth the effort and so rarely makes any.
