Around a year before this movie was made and released, a similarly titled low-budget Italian-West German film, which appeared to be a sequel to The Wild Geese (1978), had been made and released. It was called "Code Name: Wild Geese" (Code Name: Wild Geese (1984)), and was not a sequel, but a knock-off. Ironically, like The Wild Geese (1978), it had a great lead cast, arguably better than 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.
