Product description

From Amazon.co.uk

Kelly's Heroes reunited Clint Eastwood with his Where Eagles Dare director Brian G Hutton, then added The Dirty Dozen star Telly Savalas in MGM's quest to turn WWII movie celluloid into box office gold three times running. The result, a sprawling adventure about a group of soldiers led by Kelly (Eastwood) on a private mission behind enemy lines to recover a cache of Nazi treasure, echoed its predecessors but wasn't as successful. While Where Eagle's Dare was somewhat tongue in cheek, Kelly's Heroes went for a cynical comic amorality with many plot parallels to 1969's The Italian Job, written by screenwriter Troy Kennedy-Martin the year before. Donald Sutherland, who also starred in the big-screen M*A*S*H (1970), plays a hippie tank commander decades before his time, and it's hard not to see both movies as more commentaries on Vietnam than on the wars in which they were ostensibly set. Though it is intermittently very funny, and despite some expertly staged action, Kelly's Heroes never really convinces as satire or adventure.

On the DVD: Kelly's Heroes is presented on disc in a 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer which is immaculate and taken from a virtually perfect master. The images are so clean and sharp they look brand new, outclassing many current theatrical prints. The three-channel sound concentrates most of the action to the centre speaker but does an excellent job of capturing the often turbulent soundtrack. The only real extra is the original trailer, presented anamorphically at 1.77:1.--Gary S Dalkin --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

Synopsis

Clint Eastwood, Carroll O'Connor and Donald Sutherland embark on the funniest mission of WWII as they plot to steal a fortune in Nazi gold from behind enemy. --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

Brilliant, a clever comedy but with enough realistic combat scenes to be a proper a war film too. The comedy is really down to the zany characters; the death scenes are done properly and meaningfully. No pretence of war being simple or comedic.

Clint Eastwood isn't really the star, the other characters are, Clint just holds the story together and highlights who everyone else is.

Donald Sutherland superb.

Funny but doesn't make light of the horror of war.

Whats not to like? Star studded cast with Eastwood, Savalas and of course Donald Sutherland in one of his greatest every parts, certainly one of his most memorable. This ranks alongside the likes of The Dirty Dozen but is a bank caper set in WW2 as a group of American soldiers set off on a free lance mission behind enemy lines to liberate a horde of gold stored in a bank. This is a firmly tongue in cheek movie but I can't help but watch it again and again.

Brilliant, funny, what a farce. A great classic from 1973. Donald Sutherland, Clint Eastwood, Telly Savalas amongst many more on this race to grab 16 million dollars in gold from a bank behind German lines.
