Plot

During World War II a German Colonel is captured by the Americans but before he can be interrogated an artillery barrage hits the camp. However, Ex-Lieutenant Kelly manages to reach the Colonel, get him drunk and learn that he is on a secret mission to ship $16,000,000 of gold to a base in France. Kelly is determined to get the gold and plans for himself and a few of his fellow soldiers to slip into enemy territory and steal the bullion.

Critical Reception

“KELLY’S HEROES is a witty, lighthearted WWII adventure which I don’t think any fan can miss. If you need to sit back and watch American GIs kick German butt for 2 and a half hours for a goal as lofty as pure, all-American greed then this is your flick. ” – SgtSlaughter – IMDB

“Kelly’s Heros brilliantly mixes your average war movie with a bank robbery movie to come up with a plot that’s entirely unique.” – Schmidt – IMDB
