The print or video from which this DVD transfer is taken is relatively poor quality - the colour in particular is quite drained. Also the dubbing is poor by Hollywood standards but on par with Italian standards of the day. At least the sound track is in sync with the actors lips.

The story rips along at a fast pace and it is full of action, but most of the budget must have been spent on the name stars (Borgnine, Kinski and van Cleef) as production values are quiet poor. However the director makes do with what he has and tries to put what money he had left all on the screen. Some of the helicopter special effects in the oil refinery battle are too ambitious and don't come off but there are some inspirational ideas for using a helicopter as a battle platform which today's CGI could have great fun with. The acting is generally good. Lee van Cleef looks older and unwell (he had heart problems at the time this was made) but he enters into the spirit of the adventure and holds up his end well. Kinski has very little to do, which is such a waste of his talent. Borgnine is in good form and earns his pay check. The Philippines location, doubling for the Golden Triangle of SE Asia, is convincing and the action pieces are very well staged given the obvious budget limitations. Lewis Collins is servicable as the lead but it is character actor Luciano Pigozzi (nicknamed the Italian Peter Lorre) as the priest who gets crucified in his own church who steals the acting honours and the audience's sympathy.

For fans of van Cleef and Borgnine this is well worth getting. Kinski's fans, however, will be disappointed - he acts as though he is on valium, which for Kinski is saying something, and his screen time is resctricted to just a few irrelevant scenes.

The film is a very average movie and the print is definitely NOT A DVD PRINT. Amazon has recorded it, on a disc, from a VHS TAPE (inferior quality) and are selling it as a new DVD item. Do not go for it and do not spend/waste money on this one.

As a fan of the original Wild Geese, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from the movie itself. I guess it might have been slightly better than I was expecting.

What I want to let you know is that the video quality is at best a 3/10. Expect VHS quality with lots of drags that result in the audio not synced with video. It's really bad and that should be made clear to anyone who's considering purchasing. In hindsight, I wish I hadn't bought this.
