Sergeants 3 - Finally!!

"FINALLY the long awaited release of the 'lost' rat pack movie!! Yeah! As a life long Dean Martin fans who has about 20 bad dubs of this, i'm psyched to see it finally commercially released!!
Not only is Dean totally CUTE in both dress and casual uniform, he has a great part in this one. I suppose it took so long because of the racial overtones, but racism WAS a part of our history, whether we like it or not and Dean is kinda the good guy here.
And it's pretty well known that the Rat Pack was instrumental (pun - get it!) in helping blacks start gaining equality in Las Vegas...
It's not a serious piece, or a western drama. It's silly, full of in jokes, a total guy movie. The history of the Ghost Dancer Indians is completely wrong and not even close to real history, but the Indians were often the bad guys back then (another racial problem with the movie - but hey - it's the 1960's and it's the Rat Pack...deal with it)...
In short, the guys are great and seem to be having a blast, despite the fact that Lawford is still amongst them (tho not for long)...
And, like i said, Dean is TOTALLY cute in it. So relax, have a beer, and enjoy it for what it is...
and dover, the wonder dog
You need to see it

"Yes, you need to see this "Rat Pack" film that disappeared for so many long years. It was the one film of Dino's that I had never seen, so like many other fans, I looked forward to it! The film has some really fine action scenes and some top notch scenery (Bryce Canyon National Park), and the transfer here is crisp and colorful. Dean and Frank are clearly the stars here, and they do just fine. The shortcoming of the film, from my perspective, is that it can't quite seem to figure out whether it is a serious drama or a comedy. Nevertheless, I do recommend it. It's not "Rio Bravo", but it is fun."

"I saw this film the first time when I was about 20 years old. Friends asked me to join them going to this movie. When I asked what kind of movie we were going , they answered that it was with frank sinatra, dean martin and sammy davis. Oh my god I thought, it wil be a singing or some kind of musicalfilm. Not my kind of film. But they convinced me to go.
What a movie !!!! Since that time I saw it about 5 times in the movietheaters.When the internet came into our lives I started a search and finally at least, after more than many, many years a hit at amazon.
It made me very happy now that it is on dvd. I wil show this film to every one and hope that everybody wil feel the same kind of exitement I felt in those days.

"If you thought "Ocean's 11" was a glorified home movie, wait until you see the Rat Pack's lazy Western remake of "Gunga Din." Some impressive Southern Utah scenery and Dean Martin's occasional asides cannot salvage this Frank Sinatra vanity production. Transporting Rudyard Kipling to the Old West proved a big mistake - made even worse by sloppy stunt work, cheesy exterior sets, and one of the lamest endings in cinema history. With Ol' Blue Eyes calling the shots, director John Sturges had little control over the amateurish hijinks. There's a reason why "Sergeants 3" never warranted a home-video release until 2008: It's a terrible film."
