Review Hard-case actor Lee Marvin leads a rag-tag group of terminal criminals on a suicide mission behind German lines in Robert Aldrich's caustic World War II caper film The Dirty Dozen, recently re-released on DVD. Aldrich directed what must be the coldest of films noir, Kiss Me Deadly, and he applies that touch here. Having Ralph Meeker (Deadly's pitiless Mike Hammer) acting as the voice of discretion in his role as Captain Kinder only underscores how far the level of brutality sinks. Of course, it's 1967, so the violence isn't necessarily graphic, just proliferate.

Review Those who are sticklers for detail will find plenty to nit-pick about The Dirty Dozen. Its view of the military and of military procedures is slipshod, its handling of the wargames sequence is at times absurd, and its setup of the climax (where are all the guards?) is contrived. Nevertheless, it's a testimonial to Aldrich's skill as a director that these problems don't interfere with the viewer's overall enjoyment of the film. The Dirty Dozen flows nicely, keeping things moving and drawing the audience along in its rapid current. The movie may not be a masterpiece but recent history has shown it to be an important motion picture, and the passage of 33 years has not dated it, nor has it diminished The Dirty Dozen's enjoyability.
