In 1942 an elite fighting unit was formed, officially named the First Special Service Force. They were made up of mountain men, hunters and all-around misfits, and were trained to scale cliffs, jump out of airplanes, and kill Nazis. The following summer, days before the invasion of Sicily, the best of these men were handpicked for a desperate mission. Amidst the bloodshed of World War II, these men went armed for combat, and the only way out was to aim, fire and stay alive.
This movie started out interesting however quickly began to be too drawn out for the content displayed and lost my interest almost completely about halfway through. i watched to the final scene simply to see who lived. The story was predictable and slow, perhaps because it was based on fact. If you have express interest in this particular battle or knew the men who were there it may hold your fascination, otherwise you may enjoy the newspaper archive as much as the movie. Not high on my list. I suspect the real men were a lot more colorful than this effort reveals.
