Almeria Legends


"Play Dirty" - A bizarre group of killers and perverts are sent on a desperate mission 
behind Rommels lines to destroy a Nazi Oil Depot.
"Hating the Germans a little more than they hate each other, the exploits of these ruthless 
saboteurs are studded with murder, treachery and heroism as they fight a bitter war, 
knowing the winner must play dirty."
I show you the spectacular Locations of this rude Cult Movie with a 
cynical, anti-war attitude.
