American film debut of Australian actress Angela Punch McGregor. Director Michael Ritchie cast McGregor after he saw her in the Australian film Newsfront (1978) where she had recently won the Australian Film Institute's AFI Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. See more »
At the end, when Caine swings the machine gun around and kills the pirates, is an impossible act. The mount only settings in an outward arc, making it impossible to fire on the helo deck that way. See more »
One of those films you have seen when you were younger and never forget. Good story, and great ending, I would recommend this movie for anyone who has the fortune to come across it on a late night television channel. Unfortunately, this is probably the only place you will actually get to see it, unless you can find it on VHS. Micheal Caine delivers a great performance, as well as David Warner, who always seems to have obscure rolls in movies. This actor should definitely receive a lot more attention. This is certainly a little treasure to add to your "old movie" shelf. If you have the chance to read the book, it is great as well.
