It's World War II, the Ardennes mountains. During a bombing, five no-good soldiers headed to military prison for a variety of transgressions ranging from murder to desertion get a chance to escape when their convoy is attacked. They decide to make for Switzerland and freedom, now as fugitives on the run from both the Americans and the Germans, their only hope of escape is the barrel of a gun.

After mistakenly killing a group of American agents disguised as a German patrol, the party is caught by the French resistance, who give them a last chance at redemption by forcing them to carry out an impossible mission, to sneak into the most heavily guarded Nazi fortress, steal their most precious weapon and return it to the Allies undetected.

Starring Fred `The Hammer' Williamson (Black Caesar, From Dusk Till Dawn) and Bo Svenson (The Delta
Force, Kill Bill
), Inglorious Bastards is an explosive thrill ride that will have you on the edge of your seat!
  • Includes A Conversation With Quentin Tarantino and Enzo G Castellari

 Glorious Dirty Dozen Rip-Off

| | See all ReliantRobin's reviews (13)

Tarantino may have swiped the title and WW2 backdrop for his 2009 movie, but there the similarity ends as Enzo Castellari's "Inglorious Bastards" has a very different storyline and characters. This was made during an era when Italian cinema was, depending on ones point of view, either gleefully ripping off or paying homage to popular big budget American movies of that time. They had already tried their hand at the Western - with great success, so now it was the turn of the all star "men on a mission" war adventure. Castellari had, up to this point, dabbled in a variety of genres and made his name with some stylish westerns and crime (polizieschi) thrillers. While being neither the best or worst example of Castellari's work, Inglorious Bastards is an entertaining romp in the tradition of the Dirty Dozen. There are plenty of the director's trademark action scenes, with stunt men lovingly filmed twirling through the air in slow motion. The cast is efficient enough, including Fred "the Hammer" Williamson and Bo Svenson - though the absence of Castellari regular Franco Nero is disappointing. Optimum's re-release is timed to coincide with the release of Tarantino's movie and includes an interview with both directors. At this price the DVD is a bargain.

 Epic!

'Inglorious Bastards' is definatly a product of it's time, delivering on over the top thrills and explosive action. Here in lies the charm of this Italian war film.

The plot line is simple enough, a group of American P.O.W's are to be transported across the French countryside in a convoy to be tried for the various crimes they have commited. Whilst they are on the road the convoy taking them is attacked and a five of the men seize the opportunity and make their escape.

The group play out as a depeleted version of the Dirty Dozen, among them are cult cinema legends Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson, also Peter Hooten and Michael Pergolani. The cast are entertaining to watch, especially Svenson and Williamson respectively as the leader and tough guy of the group. Pergolani's character is here to add comic relief but doen't really shine, although does have a couple of funny moments. Hooten is watchable as the dark horse of the bunch with a dodgy past back in Chicago, he has little respect for his fellow man and has a running back and to with Williamson character throughout the film.

This certainly has it's moments, whilst the characters are on the run they must stay out of the way of both the army they fought for and the opposing opposition, getting into shoot outs along the way, many of these highly entertaining with some watchable action and well staged stunt work.

Although one shoot out leads the group to make a disastrous mistake they are inexplicably thrown into undertaking a dangerous mission for the US army, to get aboard a train and steal a V2 bomb from the enemy, altough the mission had been trained for for months in order to be pulled off the group have only to do the mission with no such training.

Here the film's action turns up a notch, with the mission underway the action comes thick and fast, with shoot outs, explosions and stunt men being thrown from one side of the screen to the other both in full and slow motion with explosions trailing infront and behinde them.

At the helm of all this is Italian director Enzo Castellari, who is clearly having immense fun with the characters and action secene's here, staging them all on an explosive scale.

Whilst this does have a romatic sub plot that has no place whatsoever in this film it's still an enjoyable watch with that being the only draw back, the cast, especially Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson are great to watch. Whilst the story and characters have been done in one form or another in various other men on a mission movies, this still stands as one of the most entertaining.

 dirty b*stards! retro style!

Considering this film was released in the year i was born,i wasn't expecting anything spectacular or state of the art...and i was right!Along the lines of A bridge too far meets The dirty dozen, this film is a cheaper version of those two combined.Not the best of acting or special effects is this one but enjoyable and interesting hour and a half.Interesting in the way that you can imagine and compare the immanent release of Tarantino 's shot at the story.The dvd itself has a trailer and a decent interview with the two directors having a gab about their influences etc nowt more but at this bargain bin price you cant complain! If you like the A team this is for you- cheesy but good fun,only you see people die in this one!!
