WW2 MasterpieceBy a customer from London , 03 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Stellar anti-war movie which the big man Orson Welles desrcibed as one of the best he'd ever seen. If you need more of a recommendation than that then you're a fool. Top drawer acting, dialogue, and trademark Peckinpah technical genius. Just watch it.

Excellent anti-war filmBy bobbyj (2 reviews) , 12 Jan 2013Fantastic WW2 movie from the German perspective. James Coburn and the supporting cast make this a very realistic and believable film.
Realistic War FilmBy ReviewerReviewer (83 reviews) , 06 Jan 2013This is a realistic film of what war was truley like on the Eastern front, it shows the true horror and is a well made film
A World War Two "Wild bunch" take!By a customer , 05 Oct 2012Great to see a German perspective of the war in Russia.
Good, wholesome, intriguing film about the skulduggery of a Prussian Officer who won't stop at anything to obtain his Iron Cross, even at the cost of his own side's lives.
Well worth watching.
Worth watching itBy denis007 (131 reviews) , 16 Apr 2012James Coburn and Maximillian Schell are truly equal to themselve in this movie. Good entertainment. I truly enjoyed watching it. Action packed and a good story line. Truly a classic war movie seen in a different perspective from more recent WW2 movies.
Well worth watchingBy Emjay69 (327 reviews) from Kidlington, Oxford , 03 Jan 2012Well worth watching.This is definitely one of the better war films, or even anti-war films.
It portrays the stupidity of a war that no-one wants and the tragic loss of life to young people.
However, I was surprised at the weak part as played by James Mason. This is probably his worst war film.
