DVD Review: Battle Force











Apparently someone got inspired by Quentin Tarentino’s recent film about American soldiers hunting Nazis during World War II.  “Inglourious Basterds” makes “Battle Force” look like a high school acting project.

Seriously, this is a terrible film about a handful of American soldiers who are sent to Sicily to find another handful of American soldiers who were on a pre-invasion scouting mission.

I really don’t have anything good to say about this film, so maybe I should stop.  Well, the special effects are terrible.  The writing is terrible.  The acting is terrible.  It’s like a bunch of guys at a weekend survival camp.  And, that’s being generous.

If you like World War II films with daredevil doings try the aforementioned “Inglourious Basterds” or “The Dirty Dozen” or “Where Eagles Dare.”  Don’t bother with this low-budget wannabe.  Grade: F
