The Inglorious Bastards

As Quentine Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds still sits in my netflex queue with a very long wait next to it..I decided to stream Enzo G. Castellari's 1978 original "macaroni combat" film( I stole that phrase straight from wikipedia) while I wait...A poor mans dirty dozen or should I say not quit 1/2 dozen...Staring Bo Svenson and Fred Williamson as escaped military prisoners who can't help to be real American hero's after all...This is a fun action packed film that cashes in on its exploitative nature... Lots of flying bodies both axis and allied alike...Look close and you can see some of the wires to propel the stunt men...The racial tensions between Fred Williamsons character and the rest of the rag tag team is handled progressively by Enzo...This makes for a good matinee...
