      alan g A blot on the name of the franchise. Should never have been made. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 05/30/24 Full Review Audience Member This was actually a pretty decent movie, for a made for TV action flick. Tully Savalas did a great job taking on the leader role. He leads a group of twelve convicts into battle against the Nazi's Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Telly Savalas and Ernest Borgnine are the only actors who appeared in the original film who are in this third film of the series. There's also Vince Edwards who was in a Dirty Dozen knock-off "The Devil's Brigade." The first TV movie sequel to the classic Robert Aldrich film had Lee Marvin reprising his original role and at least felt that film felt like a new story. This film feels more like a watered down TV movie remake of the original. However, you do get Randall 'Tex' Cobb in the Clint Walker-like role. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Ok war flick. Enjoyed it given its been a while since I've watched old WW movies. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member If you're counting, "The Dirty Dozen: The Deadly Mission" is the second made-for-television sequel to the 1967 theatrical original about twelve convicted U.S. Army soldiers who volunteer for a suicidal mission behind enemy lines during World War II. In this sequel, Telly Savalas takes over as the leader, Major Wright, and Ernst Borgnine reprises his original role as General Sam Worden. This time out the dozen have to blow up stashes of Hitler's secret nerve gas that they Huns have hidden in a monastery in France. "Le Mans" director Lee H. Katzin keeps the action moving ahead in the contrived, occasionally exciting script by "Let's Kill Uncle" scenarist Mark Rodgers. Katzin and Rodges maintain the formula of Major Wright touring an English prison that the Army has established and selecting suitable prisoners scheduled for execution to take with him. Vince Edwards plays the sergeant that ramrods the dozen and Wright puts them through the rigors of training before he lets them enjoy themselves with prostitutes before the mission begins. Meanwhile, the Germans kill their contact and General Worden warns Wright that things are going to be a little different. The dozen this time is no great shakes, though "Walking Tall, Part 2" actor Bo Svenson makes a particularly nasty rapist. World War II fans of the series will enjoy the firefights, especially when the dozen attack a German patrol boat and shoot it to ribbons. Again, only a handful of the dozen survive as they destroy the nerve gas and rescue the scientists that the Nazis had working for them. Altogether, despite its obviously hokey title, this Dirty Dozen mission is pretty tame. They link up with the French Resistance and Wright masquerades as a monk to survey the monastery. Naturally, this sequel lacks the bite of the original. Rather surprisingly, the theme of killing enemy generals and the general mistrust of officers is not played up in this installment.
