...We just cut up our girlfriend with a chainsaw. Does that sound "fine"?

Aka "Dirty 7". Tagline: Whatever the Dirty Dozen did - they do it dirtier!

All the internet buzz seems to be about Quentin Tarantino's remake of Enzo G. Castellari's Inglorious Bastards right now. So, let's go old school for a minute and take a look at the original. I like to use its U.S. VHS title "G.I. Bro" which exploits the afro angle - even though Fred Williamson ain't the star! Too funny.

WWII. A group of American solders in the process of being shipped off to prison manage to escape when a German air attack hits the convoy. They decide to head to Switzerland for refuge only to end up on a commando mission to help the French Underground. They must steal the Nazi's military hardware and bring it back to the Allies without getting arrested again by their own side.
I'm sure QT's version will be completely different (and bloodier) than this version and fuck, I can't wait!
There's also the DVD release of the original coming in a few weeks. 3 discs. Probably including some footage that I was in attendance for. (cause I'm a stank-ass QT whore like that.)

And now for the original theatrical trailer...

As a fan of "Dirty Dozen" & "Force 10 From Navarrone" this film pleases me greatly & scratches the itch for gritty WWII actioners.

I think the best audience reaction to this when i saw it on 35MM was when the demolitions expert hits an enemy square in the chest...WITH A ROCKET LAUNCHER!!!


that's the best.

The best in exploitation cinema from kung-fu to horror to afrocentric. 70's style. Ya' stupid muthafucka!
