The Dirty Dozen ★★★★★

Ok, WOW. I think the thing that makes this film so successful is that we spend over half the time getting to know and love the characters. By the time the mission finally starts, it is so much more emotional, because we've already become friends with these guys. I laughed so hard all the way through, and then I almost cried at the end. I wish more filmmakers would use this technique! It's so much more effective than starting things off with a car chase or something. It actually hurts my heart to see bad reviews of this movie. Well, your loss! And can the world PLEASE stop calling it a "dude's movie"...I'm allowed in this fan club too, alright!
