Daniel J. Travanti,
Lewis Collins has said that he was originally hired to play Haddad due to a contract with producer Euan Lloyd. Collins had headlined Lloyd's The Final Option (1982) movie around three years earlier. However, the part was cast with American Scott Glenn. Collins ironically had starred in "The Wild Geese" rip-off movie "Code Name: Wild Geese" (Code Name: Wild Geese (1984)) which may have been a factor in his non-inclusion in this sequel. See more »
This is a highly underated film. For those of you who love Hard action films , this is perfect. Peter Hunt gives the procedings a no frills, lean and mean pace. He brilliantly captures the tough World the characters live in. I loved the first film, this isn't as good but is entertaining enough. It is very much like 'Who dares Wins' in its uncinical approach to fast and heavy violence. The characters are not nice people so there is little love loss between them. Scott Glenn plays the lead Emotionless and I believe this is done on purpose.
