The Dirty Dozen
This story tells about a man who seems to be doing a great job. This story begins with a pilot who has a problem with situations and history where he appears to be performing a strange mission to meet military prisoners sentenced to death or long missions for a dangerous mission. It seems that these will stand behind the enemy lines and cause chaos to the German generals in the rest house and perhaps it will be more dangerous.

August 03, 2015 One of the smash hits of its year, this action-packed war movie is violent and amoral, and fans would say all the better for it.Read in Source
Bosley Crowther New York Times
May 20, 2003 A raw and preposterous glorification of a group of criminal soldiers who are trained to kill and who then go about this brutal business with hot, sadistic zeal is advanced in The Dirty Dozen, an astonishingly wanton war film.

August 19, 2010 However trite the scenario looks now, it's still better than all but the best of its copycats.Read in Source
Chris Petit Time Out
January 26, 2006 Overriding such nihilism is the super-crudity of Aldrich's energy and his humour, sufficiently cynical to suggest that the whole thing is a game anyway, a spectacle that demands an audience.Read in Source
Dave Kehr Chicago Reader
August 03, 2015 Robert Aldrich dissects the underlying ideas with just enough craft and thoughtfulness to make the implications of this gritty 1966 war drama unsettling in not entirely constructive ways.Read in Source
Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times
October 23, 2004 Right up to the last scene the movie is amusing, well paced, intelligent.Read in Source
August 03, 2015 One could, no doubt, if sufficiently determined, see all this as some deep, dark (in fact, practically subterranean) satire on the military mind. But there's precious little evidence of irony in Robert Aldrich's direction or the script.Read in Source
