World War II. An impossible mission ... The fate of the Allied invasion hanging in the balance ... 12 men with nothing left to lose. Now the fate of the free world depends on a group of convicted murderers, thieves and thugs--The Dirty Dozen. Twelve American military prisoners are offered parole--if they complete a suicide mission behind enemy lines just before D-Day.

Based on the novel by E.M. Nathanson.

Critics Consensus: Amoral on the surface and exuding testosterone, The Dirty Dozen utilizes combat and its staggering cast of likable scoundrels to deliver raucous entertainment.

Common Sense Says
Classic WWII action movie still packs a violent punch.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this classic WWII action movie from 1967 was considered extremely violent when released, though it's tamer than many PG-13-rated movies of today. It includes a hanging, fighting, kicking, shooting, and explosions (though there's very little blood), plus a man stabbing a woman to death. In one scene, the men spend an evening with some "hired girls," though nothing more than dancing is shown. Language is light, but includes some gateway words like "damn," "hell," "bitch," and "bastard. There is also some drinking and smoking.
