A train carrying a Japanese delegation with a ceremonial sword for President Grant is robbed by bandits led by Link (Charles Bronson) and Gauche (Alain Delon). When Gauche double-crosses him and leaves him for dead, Link is ordered to team up with Kuroda Jubei (Toshirô Mifune), one of the ambassador's guards, who has a week to recover the sword or commit suicide. Hoping to find out from Gauche where the gang buried their spoils before Kuroda can kill him, Link tries to escape from the samurai.

    Although I couldn't remember this film at first, reading the synopsis brought it all back to me. The cold-eyed yet incredibly charming and attractive villain played by Alain Delon, the always glorious Toshiro Mifune and the steely heroine Ursula Andress; there isn't much plot to speak of. However this is Bronson's film. The interplay between him and Mifune is a delight, I've never seen Andress act better than in her scenes with Bronson, he's just that compelling and he manages to express such emotion so simply. Despite his roles in the Great Escape, Magnificent Seven and the like, I've never seen a better role for Bronson. A glorious little-known film.

    It's a fun western movie. The thing that made, Red Sun, don't be so good is the cliche of the tough guy, that is Charles Bronson. The story: original, screenplay: full of action, but commit some flaw. Terence Young's direction is weak, and Toshiro Mifune looks like the only thing that save Red Sun. Good film...

    A Charles Bronson / Toshiro Mifune western/road movie - how can you not need to see this? Bronson plays the good bandit buddy who has seven days to help Japanese ambassador bodyguard Mifune retrieve a stolen ceremonal sword after being double-crossed by his bad bandit buddy. WIth much swordfighting and gunplay along the way, and a brief dalliance with a loyalty-conflicted Ursula Andress.

    If theres one thing worse than dodging ruthless criminals, blood-thirsty Indians, and a crazy blonde hooker....its themselves! An unlikley pair must team-up in order to get the same thing....revenge and loot! A perfectly acted, bloody tale that'll leave you breathless. Just wonderful!
