  • Gianfranco Parolini's take on The Dirty Dozen (this time only five) is a World War II/Men On A Mission film that features some really wacky soldiers. These guys don't only use machine guns to get the job done, they employ exploding softballs and trampolines! If you've seen any of Parolini's other work (like Sabata) you'll notice that he always has some kind of acrobatics in his films. Its interesting to see how other countries like Italy would take American genre films and put their own twist on them. This one will surely provide plenty of fun for Italian exploitation film fanatics! Look out for Klaus Kinski as the German Nazi commander. Hes at his eccentric best here. - Pete - 6/8/07
  • The Macaroni Combat genre offers campy movies just as well as the Spaghetti Western genre. It does have nice moments and a certain charm but the actors are relatively horrible, the music is too upbeat and the movie comes across as too clumsy - although you can see the good intentions. Margaret Lee in a see-through dress and a General with a funny name cannot save this movie, which is not one of the better representatives of said genre, but fares among the average.... --Seb 11:50, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
