(1968) Battle Of El Alamein/ aka La battaglia di El Alamein

Fictional account depicting a particular time during WWII centering on Mussolini's Italian troops allying with Rommel's German troops joining forces against the British army somewhere in Africa. The film makes the Italian soldiers more sympathetic than the German soldiers which is hard for viewers to do since the general audience do not care for Mussolini's sympathizers.

Dubbing is atrocious as always which if a person were to look at the screen enough would eventually realize that the sandy areas were being reused over and over again meaning that producers didn't have enough money to film on other sandy locations. Obvious fake model tanks were used along with some fake looking explosions, and their were times it looked as if the actors were playing soldiers rather than convincing the audience that they were really are soldiers and sometimes you can't even tell if their were Germans or Americans since they're also being played by Italians.

1/2 out of 4 stars

In general I like most WWII movies...some or way better than others. This one happens to be one of those alright WWII movies. It an Italian production and focuses largely on the Italian soldiers; a point of view that is rarely seen. Worth the watch if you enjoy WWII movies.
