Goofs

Dregors the sniper, armed with a scoped rifle, and Major Reisman confer as to the range of the sniper's shot and agree that it is around 70 yards. Not only is a 70 yard kill well within the range of any basic infantryman with a standard rifle using iron sights, 70 yards is within the range of a competent US army pistol marksman. No need for Dregors and his sniper skill. See more »

Stick with the original
2 July 2006 | by mhasheiderSee all my reviews

Flat and unconvincing follow-up to the original where Major Reisman (Lee Marvin) is ordered to lead another group of convicts into France to take out a German SS general who is planning to eliminate the Fuhrer.

Besides Marvin reprising his role here, Ernest Borgnine and Richard Jaeckel also return "nearly" two decades after the original came out.

It's almost impossible for me to decide which was worse, watching the three cast members (from the first movie) forced to carry the burden on their backs and/or how terrible the story (and the apparent lack of character development and humor if there is any). I bet a college freshman could come up with a far better story that anyone would enjoy.

Stick with the original.
