Movie Info

In 1940 the Romanian Iron Guard places an ancient spell upon a golden Luger handgun ~ a gift to them from Himmler of the SS. Year's later in modern day Bucharest, Loredana Anescu finds the gun among her dying Grandfather's possessions. Long awaiting its re~emergence is Damian Lupescu, owner of Archangel Electronics, who has dreamed of using the power bestowed on the gun to restore fascism in Europe through the medium of modern technology. Knowing nothing of its dark and mystical past, Loredana unwittingly gives the Luger to Irishman Axel O'Rourke, a Nightclub owner who runs a cigarette smuggling operation from Bucharest to London. Lupescu learns that Loredana has found the Luger and goes after her to get it, she escapes with Axel into the country. Lupescu's henchmen catch up with them, taking Loredana and the Luger, leaving Axel for dead. On learning the legend of the Luger, Axel is urged to follow Lupescu to destroy it. Back in London Axel tracks down Lupescu to put and end to his fanatical plan.

Audience Reviews for Gun Of The Black Sun

The story's imaginative and well paced. The locations are amazing, as is the cinematography - doffing its hat to the likes of "Easy Rider", "Quadrophenia" and even "The Leather Boys" as it passes through some spectacular European backdrops. The performances are stellar - not least the final performance by Richard Lynch before his untimely death earlier this year. Certainly a surprise to me, but ex-footballer Ian Wright's appearance is amazing - filling the screen with a presence that suggests that he's a veteran of such things. Elsewhere, the cast explores the remarkable plot-line supremely, holding one's attention despite the ferocious pace of the storyline. To me, this film has all the qualities to ensure its success; the Nazi/Occult connection a quite unique slant that has rarely (if ever) been explored before.
