It’s World War 2, the Adrienne mountains. During a bombing, five no good soldiers headed to military prison for a variety of transgressions ranging from murder to desertion get a chance to escape when their convoy is attacked. They decide to make for Switzerland and freedom, now as fugitives on the run from both The Americans and The Germans, their only hope of escape is the barrel of a gun.
After mistakenly killing a group of American agents disguised as a German patrol, the party is caught by the French resistance who give them a last chance at redemption by forcing them to carry out an impossible mission: to sneak into the most heavily guarded Nazi fortress, steal their most precious weapon and return it to the allies undetected. Starring Fred ‘The Hammer’ Williamson (Black Cesar, From Dusk Till Dawn) and Bo Svenson (The Delta Force, Kill Bill) INGLORIOUS BASTARDS is an explosive thrill ride that will have you on the edge of your seat!
Cross of Iron
Based on the novel by Will Heinrich, Sam Pekinpah’s (The Wild Bunch) only war film is an intense and uncompromising affair that brilliantly reflects both the futility of conflict and the director’s fascination with individuals confronted by events beyond their control.
A World War II tale told from the German perspective, Cross Of Iron follows a platoon of German soldiers in Russia when the German Wehrmacht forces had been decimated and the Germans were retreating along the Russian front. Rolf Steiner (James Coburn) is a German corporal and recipient of the Iron Cross who has grown disenchanted with Hitler’s war machine. When Captain Stransky (Maximillian Schell) assumes charge, the pair are thrown into immediate conflict, the autocratic but ultimately cowardly Stransky coveting the loyalty and honour Steiner commands.
Evocatively shot by John Coquillon (Billy the Kid) in sombre tones to emphasise the horrors of combat, the superlative lead performances are matched by David Warner and James Mason as war-weary senior officers. Viewed as one of Peckinpah’s most powerful works, it’s an unflinching vision of the Second World War.
