Very believable scenario of a group of mercenaries instituting a coup in a West African nation. I can't claim that I understood all that transpired in the film, but I understood enough to be mesmerized by the plot. Christopher Walken portrayed persuasively his typical oddball self, this time as the chief coordinator of the coup. 4 stars
Watched this movie, then watched it again the next day. Love this movie. I taped it off a premium channel (way back when) and brought it to work for my dispatcher friends at a public utility to watch during graveyard shift. When I left for home, they were still gathered around the TV, watching it for the second time.
This rare, classic Blu-Ray Mercenary/War movie, arrived on time and intact, with no damge to either the disc, the movie guide booklet and the case that the disc and booklet came in. Picture, sound and features playback is superb. I would recommend this rare classic Blu-Ray Mercenary/War movie, from Twilight Time Limited Edition, to anyone who purchases it online from amazon.com.
Moral decision: Do you replace a ruthless dictator with another ruthless dictator just to make companies rich while the populace is merely at the mercy of the ruler? Nicely done...got to love Walken, and that hair of his...good acting all around...intriguing plot....
Some corporation needs to install their own puppet president in a West African country to further their plans, and Christopher Walken is just the man to take care of business. For the right price, of course. A little dated, but watchable.
