Sean Connery puts in a good performance as an English mercenary called in by the toppling Cuban goverment to curtail the activities of the Rebels.
What follows involves him with an old flame the Goverment and the rebels and of Course American interests .
The love story part of the film is a bit stale probably because actress Brooke Adams is way to young to cut it as a connery love interest.
But what does work is Lester eye for suppoert casting and of course background deatail.
The supporting cast includes Martin Baslam,Denholm Eliot,Hector Elizondo and Jack Weston all get some good lines and parts to get their teeth into.
Lester stages the fall of the goverment very well and for a fan of Lesters films i consider this to be a real little gem ,a few flaws in that gem but well worth unearthing
