World War II, somewhere in France: Allied deserters Sergeant Yeager (Bo Svenson), playboy Tony (Peter Hooten), hulking black man Camfield (Fred Williamson), master forger and thief Nick (Michael Pergolani) and cowardly and shell-shocked Berle (Jackie Basehart) are taken to be court-martialed and possibly shot - when their prisoners' transport runs into a German ambush and somehow the five of them manage to seize the opportunity, steal a truck and escape, planning to go to Switzerland which is a mere 160 miles away.

However, during their journey they run into many a patrol and many a shoot-out and airplane attack, and they have to use all their wits to get through it all alive. But they also stumble into Adolf (Raimund Harmstorf), like them a deserter, only he is a German. He agrees to help them get to Switzerland since they are all in the same boat, but when they run into a German patrol, they think Adolf betrays them and shoot him and the whole patrol dead - only to then find out the Germans were actually Americans undercover and Adolf didn't in the least betray them. Furthermore, they were Americans on a secret mission - and soon the French Resistance arrives on scene, and to not run into any more trouble, Yeager and his men assume the identity of those they shot - and soon they learn they are supposed to blow up a highly guarded German train carrying a new V2 rockethead which simply mustn't reach its destination.

Of course, the whole charade is eventually found out by Colonel Buckner (Ian Bannen), who is to command the mission, but somehow Yeager, overcome by sudden patriotism, can convince Yeager that his men are just as capable of doing the job as those they've killed.

With the mission going forward, our gang of accidental heroes run into problem after problem, but somehow they can master everything thrown at them, even if that means at one point attacking a German fortress with their numbers counting no more than six.

Finally, Yeager and Buckner manage to smuggle themselves onto the train in question by dressing up as German officers, and causing havoc aboard the train, while the others and the Resistance see to it that all tracks are suitably blown up so the train has to take a certain route where they can launch an attack. Need I say that everything ultimately amounts to a happy ending, even if the Sergeant and Nick the thief and forger have to die hero's deaths.


Quite often, Inglorious Bastards is dismissed as a direct rip-off of The Dirty Dozen, even if the similarities are at best fleeting. In fact, Inglorious Bastards is a rather light-hearted war-movie that even has some room for a bit of (unintrusive) comedy, but that however excels in its many action scenes (as would be expected from action-auteur Enzo G.Castellari). Add to this production values that are up to the film's demands, a fast pace throughout, a well-written script featuring likeable characters, good actors and great direction and camerawork and you've got a very entertaining war film.

No masterpiece perhaps, but definitely recommended.


By the way, director Quentin Tarantino has announced a remake of this movie for 2009 - which is only good news because the film might finally get the recognition it deserves, but bad news because the film is simply put good enough to need no remake.
