Storyline

American arms dealer Kennedy hopes to make a killing by selling to the "regulares" in the 1916 Mexican revolution. American mercenary Wilson favors the rebel faction headed by Escobar, and they plot to hijack Kennedy's arms; but Wilson also has his eye on Kennedy's wife. Raids, counter-raids, and escapes follow in a veritable hail of bullets. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Goofs

Near the end of the movie Robert Mitchum says the barges with the arsenal are at Playa Blanca, which is on Mexico's west coast NW of Acapulco. In the final scene after telling Gilbert Roland that he was headed north toward the border where he left Ursula Thiess in a "pawn shop", he trots along the beach with the Pacific Ocean on his right -- clearly heading south.

A good movie
22 June 2001 | by (Azusa,CA) – See all my reviews

This is a fun Robert Mitchum movie, with a little taste of the "Magnificent Seven". Mitchum plays an American adventurer who runs afoul of American gunrunner Zacary Scott. While attempting to steal the shipment of guns from Scott he becomes involved with Scotts wife as well as the noble cause of the revolution. He ultimately sees that the rebels get the guns. This movie is very enjoyable, with the always good performance of Gilbert Roland (as the rebel general) and several other recognizible Hispanic actors such as Rudy Hoyos. I haven't seen this movie shown on TV even on cable for years. I would definitely like to see it released on VHS. The movie has some pretty good action scenes so if you get a chance to see it, DO!
