Audience Reviews for March Or Die


Standard actioner about the French Foreign Legion guarding an archaeological dig in Morocco where the Arab locals are stereotypically not happy about their presence. Hackman's okay as the leader of the military and Holm's (inoffensively) effective at the head of the Muslim hordes although I'd've personally enjoyed seeing them reverse their roles.
