Overview

This DVD from Warner Brothers about a misfit squad searching for Nazi bullion isn't exactly pure gold (perhaps silver), but it will certainly please fans of the film. The widescreen presentation boasts a clean transfer, with Dolby Digital 5.1 Audio accentuating the wartime action and fine musical score. Both French and English soundtracks are available, with optional subtitles in the same languages. Where this DVD comes up a little short is in regard to bonuses. The trailer is included, as is information on the cast and crew, but that's about it. Commentary, further information on the making of the film, or some extra scenes would have been nice, but are unfortunately missing. For fans of this film, however, the transfer alone will be enough to persuade them to join up with Kelly and his oddball friends.

I loved the movie, a great entertainment with fine perfomances by Donald Sutherland and Clint Eastwood.

Clint Eastwood and director Brian G. Hutton reteam(they first worked together in Where Eagles Dare) for this zany WW2 Caper movie. Along for the ride with Clint are Telly Savalas, Donald Sutherland, Don Rickles, Carroll O'Connor, Gavin MacLeod, and Stuart Margolin. The plot? Kelly (Eastwood) convinces a group of soldiers to use their 3-day pass to sneak several miles behind enemy lines in order to steal 16 million in German bullion for themselves. Enroute they experience all manner of adventures before the grand finale, which features fine action sequences and a hilarious spoof of Clint's Spaghetti Westerns. Hutton again does a masterful job of directing in this serio-comic film. The cast works well together, although if I have one complaint, it's Sutherland's hippie tank commander: he's an obvious anachronism who doesn't quite fit in.

Perhaps one of the most amazing films dealing with WWII, Kelly's Heros manages to some how make a sad time in the history of man seem hilarious. While no one in Hollywood would touch the subject of Vietnam straightforward on film (with the exception of John Wayne's misguided ''The Green Berets''), Kelly's Heros obviously spoofs the war. Sutherland's portrayal of a ''way out'' tank commander is perhaps the best of his career. In contrast to the earlier films about WWII showing a self-sacrificing solidarity, Kelly's Heros embodies the spirit of the 60's ''me'' generation. Everyone is out for their share of the gold, and don't want to wait for anybody. Check out the scene where Sutherland's Oddball introduces Eastwood's Kelly to his tank. It's worth watching twice.
