Not so bad as what to follow
19 September 2008 | by See all my reviews

Here, the story is still told almost well, and the direction is decent enough. One of the best scenes is the drinking roulette in the end, where the mercenaries are paired two by two, to drink themselves stupid, so that the oe keeping longer of each couple shoots the other. Of course, Amza Pella and Cornel Girbea offer the most interesting confrontation and outcome.

But, all in all, the movie doesn't bring anything new. It's just an adventure film on historical background.

I also remember that when I saw it people were commenting that the censorship had insisted to delete certain scenes, because they were too cruel, and Nicolaescu was able to keep them. For that period, it was interesting enough, but they can't compare with what one can see now as cruelty.
