Synopsis:
Clint Eastwood's misfit squad is in the Army -- and in the money! They were goldbricks until they found out about the gold bricks -- a fortune in Nazi-confiscated bullion! Clint Eastwood reups with the director of his Where Eagles Dare for this alternately action-filled and tongue-in-cheek tale of GIs who decide to get something extra out of the war. Eastwood, North America's #2 box-office star at the time, plays Lt. Kelly, mastermind of a scheme to slip behind enemy lines and steal the loot. Co-stars include a trio on the verge of big-time TV success: Carroll O'Connor, Telly Savalas and Gavin MacLeod. Plus, Don Rickles plays the expectedly outspoken Crapgame.
And in the same year as his starmaking M*A*S*H, Donald Sutherland is Oddball, World War II's only hippie.

No negative waves, man - Kelly's Heroes review by HW

Spoiler Alert
08/02/2023

A fun war action flick. It’s good to see that the same director of ‘Where Eagles Dare’ can deliver a similar movie with more humour and grit. Clint Eastwood plays another super-cool dude who gathers a bunch of grunts to go deep past enemy lines in WW2 France: not for any noble, strategic reason but to steal a fortune in Nazi gold bars. I wonder if this movie was referencing Eastwood’s other wartime heist movie ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’. What both movies do share is a cynical sense of satire. The grunts choose to do something in their own interest for a change rather than be marched across Normandy by distant generals. The Normandy invasion is not a noble enterprise; it’s an inconvenience. One war-crazed general and the French public consider these raiders as brave liberators. I really enjoyed watching Donald Sutherland play Oddball the tank commander, a hippy decades before his time. As well as laughs, this comedy delivers on action and some poignant moments of peril, when the soldiers realise they could all get killed in the name of gold and the odds are stacked against them.
