The Devil’s Brigade (1968)

132 min

Chiefly of interest because of filming locations in Utah.

  • Too much time spent on “getting the band back together” phase (half the movie)
  • First attack in Italy ludicrously easy
  • We don’t see Germans respond to artillery barrage
  • The overall objective the entire movie is moving towards is too undefined and comes too late in the movie
  • Real fighting only comes with 15 minutes left in movie
  • Use of a German POW to help carry wounded would never happen
