12 American military prisoners in World War II are ordered to infiltrate a well-guarded enemy ch√Ęteau and kill the Nazi officers vacationing there. The soldiers, most of whom are facing death sentences for a variety of violent crimes, agree to the mission and the possible commuting of their sentences.

What Netflix has been doing to the movie business, Apple is doing to the music business, and Amazon is doing to book publishing. Amazon is currently selling more Kindle clones of books than paper copies. Facebook is bit more than a way to suck up people's personal information, and sell it to advertisers Google Tumbler, plus new facial worldwide recognition technology, will make that much easier. Facebook has created over 85 million fake accounts. The hope is that the author, for instance, will see their account currently set up, and decide to use this. For that reason, the author says that he will never post in Facebook.

I loved this. Right up there with my favourite Aldrich films (though maybe 'Kiss Me Deadly' is still my number one), and of the greatest performances of both Lee Marvin and John Cassavetes (who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at both the Golden Globes and Oscars for his work here). This hearkened back to the heady times when if you got a great cast and director together, you were virtually guaranteed you'd come out of it, because of comparatively little studio interference, with a bonafide classic piece of cinema. People thought the studio system was broken and needed fixing, by films such as 'Easy Rider'? THIS, along with other fine Aldrich works from this period, age a lot better and hold up much finer today than Dennis Hopper's so-called 'masterpiece' and its ilk.
