Old fashioned action at it's bestBy wildgeese from England , 02 Feb 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Looking at the film now it may seem old style now but back in 1978 it was a big hit.
It has a really great score by roy budd who also wrote the score for get carter.
The plot may be a little thin but the action is first rate.
Worth a look just to see the acting greats together,and you can see they had a good time making it.

Sorry, the R.S.M is still yelling in my ears!
Good film, still same tactics being trained today.
Watch out for the now well known celebs just past half way through the film.
British boys own romp!By a customer from bucks , 21 Mar 2007Made in 1978 with the cream of British actors of the time, well made, well acted,
good story, well worth watching, all action war film.
Better than averageBy a customer from UK , 25 Jan 2007In the realm of star filled shoot'em war flicks, this has a good (if dated) plot and fine 'character' acting. Simplistic politics aside, good adventure yarn.
Boys own stuffBy Peter from West Yorkshire , 10 Sep 2006I've seen this film 4 or more times over the yrs on TV but not until now on DVD. It might just be the benefits of progressive scan but the print looks fantastic and the story as ever remains highly entertaining.
While not usually that bothered with extras its also illuminating to see and hear the background to how the film came about and the politics at the time that surrounded it.
Would you hire alot of pensioners for a comando raid?By jennifer claire from Ireland , 24 Aug 2006Apart from the strange choice of OAP cast- though both Richards are excellent- ths film is not much different from alot of shoot-em-ups of the era. A bit of half-hearted moralising in the middle, and some very dull scenery - hard to believe this is the same central Africa that looks so fantastic in all those other films- do the thing no favours, either.
High body count, some gruesome ends, and
alot of testosterone happening here.
