The Mercenaries (Dark of the Sun) Reviews

A now cult classic action-adventure film that deserves to be seen by a much wider audience. Rod Taylor at his best, I think, playing the tough-as-nails guy, rather than the more gentlemanly roles he'd played earlier -- though he's fine in them, too. See if for its terrific action, performances, intriguing story, and to see the authentic locales in Africa -- quite unusual for the time.

An astounding-for-its-time film, with some EXTREMELY brutal and realistic violence, some extreme pessimism and cynicism, and some very heavy inspiration for Dogs of War later in the 80s. Fantastic action sequences, some great DP work, interesting performances, very little cliche, and definitely worth finding if you can. Bad-ass and rough, just the way a Mercenary film should be!

A mostly forgotten gem of a film that truly deserves to be more widely seen as it doesn't even have an English region 2 dvd release, which is a travesty owing to the British talent involved. Rod Taylor is perfect playing a tough soldier-of-fortune with a good heart, likewise big Jim Brown as his sidekick and Ken More as the missions alcoholic doctor. If you can get hold of a region 1 copy, which probably won't be cheap, but it will be worth it, as this is one of the best war films ever made, with fantastic direction, gut wrenching tension and brutal action. A theatrical re-release would be a real treat as the film hasn't hardly aged at all.

Even the commonly available, edited version is great. ...on the lookout for the uncut version...
