Audience Reviews for The Dogs of War

It's an okay movie with good actors, but I was wanting to see more action, and this is mostly a dramatic film about life after the war. Felt like it could have had a better balance of those two. I was bored.

Classic and undderated! Noone gives this mercenary war movie enuff credit - it deserves heaps more! Christopher Walken is Shannon, the mercenary hired to subvert a small African nation for high paying executives - until his encounter as a prisoner and his morality takes charge in his firestorm war against the totalitarian government. WONDERFUL!
