Very good action sequences and outstanding performances.
Shout at the devil proved to be a bit of a surprise to me, I expected a boring war film, but I was very positively surprised.
The film starred my favorite actor Roger Moore and he delivered a good performance. At 49 he looks extremely handsome, like he did in all the Bond films, Moore is an outstanding actor. Lee Marwin also starred an outstanding performance in all aspects of the movie.
The film was directed by Peter Hunt who also directed On Her Majesty`s Secret Service (1969), he proved then he could make a great action adventure, and he did so again. With great action sequences and some very good humour delivered brilliantly from Marwin and Moore.
Shout at the Devil proves to be one of the finest films of the seventies.
