Features: Disc 1: Inglorious Bastards Uncut Version. Disc 2: interview with Enzo G. Castellari, interview with composer Francesco De Masi, Theatrical Trailer , and much more. Disc 3: Bonus Soundtrack CD of only surviving original music. "Whatever The Dirty Dozen did," screamed the ads, "they do it dirtier!" Inglorious Bastards is more than just the inspiration for Quentin Tarantino's long-rumored next movie; this 1978 international smash remains perhaps the biggest and most badass war movie in EuroCult history! Exploitation legends Fred 'The Hammer' Williamson and Bo (Walking Tall, Kill Bill) Svenson star as the leaders of a gang of condemned criminals who escape from an Allied prison camp with a plan to blast their way to the Swiss border, only to find themselves 'volunteering' for a suicide mission deep inside Nazi occupied France. Academy Award® nominee Ian Bannen (Flight Of The Phoenix, Braveheart) co-stars in this explosive action epic from director Enzo Castellari (Street Law, The Big Racket), now fully restored from original vault elements for the first.

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.Read more ›
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!!!!!
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.
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.
