Recently, some meathead friend of a friend was perusing my video collection and asked me with a sneer on his face, "What kind of girl owns The Dirty Dozen?"
Can I help it if this chick has taste?
Of course I completely understand the assumption that this is a guy's movie. After all, the only females to feature in the film are whores. While women played an important role in the WWII victory, they were more in the factories than on the front lines. I refrain from saying only men enjoy watching stuff get blown up, but I will venture to say that if my father had had sons, he might have introduced them to this film genre rather than his daughters.
But this is a quality film with enough substance for both genders to enjoy. After all, this is a film about redemption. Lee Marvin must struggle to make worthy soldiers out of men who would steal, rape, and murder. The importance of a meaningful death is the motivation behind his troop's transformation.
The movie is a little slow, but the script is good and the action alternates between wildly humorous and intensely suspenseful. Furthermore, this film is full of amazing moments of character development. Charles Bronsen's failed attempt at a word-association exercise. Telly Savalas's portrayal of chilling insanity. Donald Sutherland as the idiot "general" inspecting the troops. Jim Brown, who does not care to fight the white man's war but can not suppress his own heroic nature. And John Cassavantes as the tricky, irrepressible Victor Franco, the guy we love to hate. Or is that hate to love?

A true classic. A little bit of nostalgia from my childhood and memories of my brother. You can't beat that.

An opportunity arises to make a big difference in the war with just one operation. However it is determined a possibility that no one will survive. So who better to choose than soldiers that are already condemned to die?

The formula is standard where all the 12 individual personalities are introduced. Throughout the film they display their individual strengths and weaknesses as they become a team.

As with many big-budget movies the 12 actors used to portray the 12 soldiers are well known at the time of the production. Of course we will all have our favorites; and with 12 personalities to choose from not all 12 actors will have the same strength of character. However they are all needed to balance the story.

It is not the story behind the film that gives it its strength. A few faux pas's are overlooked. As you will soon feel that you are part of this expedition.

I find myself periodically rewatching this movie and each time still pick up or really remember nuances that were overlooked. So if you have an opportunity you will want to rewatch this movie.

This is my favourite film of all time. I have an old VHS tape but worried about what happens if it breaks..so I purchased the DVD of the same film. I never get tired of viewing this film.

Saw this at the theater when I was a kid. Fine character actors and ensemble performances. They
don't make 'em like this any more.
