No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Exciting explosive sequences, good overall pacing and acting overcome a sometimes thin script.
A truly adventuresome, action-filled film that is played more for thrills than for conveying a story.
Top notch western adventure laden with macho stars Lancaster, Marvin and Palance.
A rock-solid piece of Western Adventure entertainment. Marvin, Lancaster & Palance!
A topnotch Western.
It's a little dated and has a few shot-on-bad-studio-set moments, but on the whole it's an impressive film, even if you don't normally care for Westerns.
It's far too entertaining to be lumped in with portentous epics like Dances With Wolves and How The West Was Won.
Audience Reviews for The Professionals
- Capt. Jesus Raza: You want perfection, or nothing. The revolution was never perfect. We fight because we believe, we leave because we are disilliusioned, we return because we are lost, we die because we are committed.
- Bill Dolworth: To die for a woman is even more foolish, any woman, even her.
- Bill Dolworth: My word to Grant 'aint worth a plug nickle.
- Rico (Henry Fardan): You gave your word to me.
- Hans Ehrengard: Mr Grant, I can make 'em go, but I can't make 'em do.
