Colonel Pembroke (Coburn) is sent to recapture Fort Holman, which he surrendered as a Union commander to his enemy (Savalas) who killed his son. His team consists of convicted felons, mostly vagabonds, looters and rapists. Promising them a treasure of gold, they all set out for a clandestine operation to infiltrate the fort and retake it.


Lame variation of the overused Dirty Dozen formula. The screenplay and the directing are remarkably uninspired. (by Stanton)
