Five for Hell (1969)
Review by Bruce Walsh
Available from Video Treasures

This French/Italian co-pro was directed by Frank Kramer/aka Gianfranco Parolini and is a wonderfully inexpensive stocking stuffer for the holiday season.

Plot? Sure...A five man specialist/German-speaking commando unit must acquire "Plan K" to save the Allied Troops.

K2 plays SS Colonel Hans Mueller. Margaret Lee is double agent Helga Ritter. John Garko is U.S. Lt. Hauffman, our hero who forms the crack unit.

Filmed mostly in an Italian granite quarry, with authentic WWII German vehicles and uniforms. Oh! and K2 blackmails Helga into puttin' out. And they have the neatest portable trampolines.

"That's war."
