The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission is a 1988 action-adventure movie directed by Lee H. Katzin and starring Telly Savalas, Ernest Borgnine, and Hunt Block. It is the third sequel to the original 1967 classic, The Dirty Dozen. The story is set in 1944, toward the end of World War II, when the Nazi regime is at its peak. The Allied forces have recruited a new team of twelve convicts, nicknamed the "Dirty Dozen," for a top-secret mission behind enemy lines in Italy. The team is led by Major Wright (Hunt Block), who is given the task of infiltrating a German missile base and destroying it before it can be used against Allied forces.

The team comprises an eclectic group of characters, including a tough-as-nails street fighter, a demolitions expert, a German-speaking pickpocket, and a former Nazi soldier, among others. They are given a week to train together and prepare for the mission.

While training, tensions arise between the members of the team, and Major Wright finds it hard to keep them under control. Despite this, the Dirty Dozen is eventually ready for their mission, and they parachute into enemy territory.

Things don't go according to plan when they land, and the team is forced to improvise and adapt to survive. Along the way, they encounter resistance from both the German army and their own allies, who are suspicious of their motives.

Throughout the movie, there are many action-packed scenes of combat, explosions, and daring escape attempts. The Dirty Dozen prove that they are not just a bunch of criminals, but skilled soldiers who are ready to sacrifice themselves for their country.

The primary antagonist in the movie is Colonel Muller (Ernest Borgnine), a fanatical Nazi officer who is responsible for the missile base. Muller is an unpredictable, ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to protect his secrets and eliminate any threats to his mission.

As the Dirty Dozen get closer to their objective, the tension and danger escalate. Major Wright and his team face numerous obstacles and setbacks, but they refuse to give up. Their mission becomes personal as they discover evidence of war crimes and atrocities committed by the Nazis.

Overall, The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission is a thrilling and exciting movie that delivers plenty of action, suspense, and drama. The stellar cast, including Telly Savalas and Ernest Borgnine, brings depth and complexity to their characters, making them more than just caricatures of soldiers and criminals.

The movie is a fitting tribute to the original Dirty Dozen, capturing the spirit of the original while updating it for a new generation. It is a great addition to the series and deserves recognition as a well-crafted, entertaining movie that delivers on its promises.

The Dirty Dozen: The Fatal Mission is a 1988 war movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.0.
