Goofs

At the end of the film when the last German soldier is shooting at Lt. Hoffmen, he fires several continuous shots with a Mauser bolt-action rifle, without moving the bolt after each shot. It would be impossible to fire a bolt-action rifle without moving the bolt after each shot to eject the spent casings. See more »

Alternate Versions

The European release has the actors portraying American characters speaking Italian. The actors portraying German characters spoke German with Italian subtitles, or have had their voices dubbed-in by German-speaking actors, also with Italian subtitles. The American release has the actors portraying American characters speaking English, whose voices have been dubbed in by English-speaking actors. The actors portraying Germans have had their voices dubbed in English in most cases. Occassionally, in the German sequences, the Italian subtitles remain in place of dubbed voices. The American release has most of the opening and closing titles translated to English. See more »

It makes you wish Germany had won...
5 September 2004 | by mr2shedsSee all my reviews

To watch this film is to follow five misfit American soldiers directly into hell, where they beat you up, take your wallet and abandon you.

In my WWII film and literature class, I show Five for Hell's opening credit sequence, which lasts about 15 minutes (pacing, people, pacing), as an example of war movie making at its worst. While the film is about a commando raid, the soundtrack is about a young woman who goes to Los Angeles to become a go-go dancer. Commander Baseball has clearly never thrown a ball in his life, but I guess that doesn't matter when you are going into combat against an army of Bond movie henchmen. Quite possibly a war crime, Five for Hell is a visual root canal.
