Inglorious Bastards

Gritty and truly living up to it's name, Inglorious Bastards takes the war movie, spins it on it's head, ups the ante, spits it out and makes for an amazing viewing experience. Despite all that, it's a movie that even maybe the weak of stomach could sit through without being too grossed out.

Even though this movie deserves kudos in it's own right, the recent release of the Quentin Tarantino flick will, I guess, direct more viewers to this movie to see the origin. If you are one of those people, all I can really do for you to make sure you are not disappointed, is tell you that these are two very different movies and Tarantino is essentially using the premise and the title and putting his own spin on it.

Let's get back to the task at hand and let you know a bit about the movie. Inglorious Bastards is a spaghetti war movie made by director Enzo Castellari and exploitation legends Fred "The Hammer" Williamson and Bo Svenson and tells the tale of condemned Allied war criminals who are on their way for court-martial for various amusing and some not so amusing crimes who bust free and amidst their jaunt across Europe, take the war right back to the Nazis.

Yes the story is over the top but its also totally awesome viewing from the very start through to the very end. Considering the production year is 1977, this also speaks volumes for the story and the fact that it is still a totally viewable movie for the young and not so young. This is in frank, a comedic version of the dirty dozen with many of the bloody shootouts interspersed with real dark humour. This really folks is must watch viewing and an awesome addition to your collection.

Oh and did I mentioned naked skinny dipping nazi chicks with machine guns?

Nuff Said!
