Robert Aldrich's The Dirty Dozen is exciting, thrilling, explosive, and full of spectacular action sequences. Supported by talented A-list actors. Lee Marvin looks cool as the leader of twelve soldiers. But, John Cassavetes is the scene stealer in this movie. He's a psychotic soldier. I must admit that he's a loveable bastard. Sadly he didn't win Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. I feel the training scene is too long.
