Storyline

During the Civil War, a band of soldiers-of-fortune, led by Clyde McKay, infiltrates a town occupied by the Confederate forces of General Hood. After causing a diversion, McKay's group brawls with Confederate soldiers and manages to penetrate General Hood's headquarters. The general's aide, Captain Lynch, is disarmed and the general is made prisoner. However, the whole action is shown to be an exercise, planned by General Hood himself, to test the skills of Clyde McKay's group of six hand-picked mercenaries. It's true the six men are unsavory characters, bandits, killers and convicts but that's exactly what General Hood needs for his secret mission behind Union lines. Specifically, the Confederacy, which is short of cash, needs Union gold in order to continue the war. According to Captain Lynch, the Union is hiding an enormous sum in gold coins among dynamite sticks in an arsenal found in a Union stronghold. Clyde McKay's group, with occasional assistance from Captain Lynch, is to ... Written by nufs68

Kill them all and bring back a fish supper
29 May 2017 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

Hey - this is an Italian World War 2 movie plot! A bunch of guys, having fulfilled a training exercise, are then sent behind enemy lines to steal a bunch of gold, with at least one traitor in their midst? That sounds like Five For Hell, or one of those other films they show all the time on the telly! This is a Western however -someone's cheating! Enzo's no fool, however. He knows his film is about as in tune with reality as a plastic kangaroo doing Hamlet, so he does what he does best: fills the film with wall-to-wall action and forgets about supper! And it works! Chuck Connors is the cheeseball leader of our crew who has to infiltrate Yankee territory and steal gold that is mixed with dynamite. Frank Wolff is the snidey Confederate Captain who wants the gold for himself (and also seems to be a Yankee Captain as well?). Plus, Connors has about half a dozen men who seems loyal but most of which try to rip him off too.

When not trying to kill or rip off each other these guys are taking on the USA army, and winning! One of them is a strong man, another has a freakin rocket launcher! Will any of them remain loyal or will the drink cause us to pass out before we find out the truth? Filled with Enzo's hyperactive camera work, ridiculous POV work, and constant explosions, this is another worthy Enzo film for your collection! I'm drunk!
