Editorial Reviews

-A Star-studded release that rings true during today’s war on terror starring Ernest Borgnine (The Wild Bunch), Robert Vaughn (The Magnificent Seven, Dynamite) Oliver Reed (The Big Sleep), and Nancy Mulford!-Retired Colonial Smith (Ernest Borgnine), along with his pack of seven mercenaries, set out to rescue his CIA agent son that has been taken prisoner by a terrorist army after aiding a rebel uprising. The group must face a heavily armed fortress and an East German officer that specializes in torture on Skeleton Coast in order to save his life. Will the pack be able to stand up to the sadistic colonel (Robert Vaughan) and other villainous scoundrels they must face along the way or die trying? Will anyone get decapitated? -It’s The Dirty Dozen meets The Wild Bunch by way of Platoon!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of Ernest Borgnine's best March 2, 2005
Format:DVD
Despite the fact that the main premise of the film is a rip off of the 1983 movie "Uncommon Valor" (starring Ernie's 'Poseidon' sparring partner Gene Hackman), this film lacks it's portentious nature and concentrates on non stop action,some great battle scenes (despite what was obviously a limited budget) and a group of veteran actors, knowing full well that this isn't exactly "Shakespere In Love", having fun with their roles: most notably Ernest Borgnine, who gives it everything he's got.

In fact,the ones who will enjoy this movie the most will be fans of the 60s TV sitcom "McHale's Navy"--or 'mercenary army' in this case. Substituting for Joe Flynn (Capt.Binghampton) is Robert Vaughn playing a German colonel, forever frustrated by the rumors of the approaching army's invasion of the prison fortress and the political prisoners contained within:his constant berating of his assistant Schroeder reminds one of Bob Hastings' Lt.Carpenter in similar circumstances. Also the mercenaries themselves -- Leon Issac Kennedy plays 'Chuck'....at times one expects Tim Conway to stumble out of a doorway, followed by the inevitable explosion, a religious expert knife thrower, an elder statesman soldier, an explosives expert, a beautiful blonde who can handle herself in a fight and a ninja named Toshiro (no,no sign of 'Fuji') Led by the Colonel, with the help of a local rebel army, they invade the fortress to rescue the Colonel's CIA operative son--and pick up anything else that catches their fancy.

I rented this digital product for download on March 24, and the audio lagged the video by approximately 1 second!

I was informed by the digital customer support representatives that they could not view the product to determine if it had audio or not, that had to be done by their development team. I may be missing something here, but it would seem to me that this would be a natural obligation of the customer support folks. They simply do not have a means of doing this!

I was informed that their development people would eventually look at it, and I would be notified when it was corrected. In the meantime, it is still on the website for rental and purchase download! There is apparently no quality control at Amazon for their digital products. This is ridiculous!

I have rented/purchased and downloaded other products which are just fine when played on my desktop. The problem lies with the digital product in this and three other cases which I will be documenting. Hopefully, this will provide the apparently necessary catharsis to Amazon to fix its digital download problems!

The film was great way back when in the theaters and I would really like to watch it again. Maybe Amazon will eventually fix it and I will be able to do so.

3.0 out of 5 stars Action film is good. September 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Skeleton Coast is your run of the mill adventure film set in a foreign country with revolutionaries. Of course there's the money and intrigue and double crosses. You've seen it all before. Highlight is, of course, Ernest Borgnine, who always brings something special to his roles.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Not Good. Thought it would be better March 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Besides Ernest i thought the acting was second rate. The Story sounded interesting enough for me to buy the product, but in the end i found it hard to watch to completion. NOTE: i am not , don't claim to be and never want to be a movie critic. so don't waste your time telling me how bad my review was, Because Frankly, I Don't Give a damn. Thank you.
