Plot

During World War II a German Colonel is captured by the Americans but before he can be interrogated an artillery barrage hits the camp. However, Ex-Lieutenant Kelly manages to reach the Colonel, get him drunk and learn that he is on a secret mission to ship $16,000,000 of gold to a base in France. Kelly is determined to get the gold and plans for himself and a few of his fellow soldiers to slip into enemy territory and steal the bullion. During World War II, Lieutenant Kelly learns of a German bank located behind enemy lines containing 16 million dollars in gold bars. His platoon, led by Big Joe, has three days of R&R coming, so, with the aid of hustler Crapgame, anachronistic hippie Oddball, three Sherman tanks and a touch of irreverence, Kelly leads his men deep into French territory to steal the gold for themselves.

Film Genius, 28 May 2004 Author: rogue_trooper from uk apart from the terrain which looks like yugoslavia,and is, this film is faultless.perhaps because, as a war movie there has never been anything like it. It offers up parallels to Vietnam, the hippy sixties, plenty of film reference, career best turns from savalas, and in my opinion , sutherland too.good action, blackly funny as well as downright hilarious, and surprisingly informative in its depiction of a bureaucratic army, (it all relies on a breakdown in logistics and communication)and the sheer chaos of the western front in 1945 for both allied and American forces.it doesn't pull its punches and it offers a refreshingly new film perspective on what life on the frontline is like, albeit filtered thru a post 1960's lens.if your expecting saving private ryan(ie, occasional schmaltz and it lookin like a capa photo)you womt get it. in stead you'll get something that is wildly derivative but totally original. an, often action based ,war movie that didn't even have anything in the same class til Three Kings in 1999?, and even that falls way short of Kelly Heroes.
