aka The Magnificent Six
27 November 2008 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

In fact, that's the poor man's MAGNIFICENT SEVEN we deal with.

A sort of war adventure movie with the usual international cast for its time: the late 60's and early 70's. It takes place in Iran. The topic is nearly a copycat of the John Sturges' masterpiece everyone knows. But with of course much lesser value. A good cast, nevertheless. Jim Mitchum gives here an interesting performance as the lead bad guy. No length in the narrating, the film offers also well paced and pretty good action sequences. But it remains in the grade B standards.

And, above all, the most surprising thing to say about this movie is the director: JEAN NEGULESCO himself. The great Hollywwood director of Daddy Long Legs, Titanic, How To Marry a Millionnaire, Mask of Dimitrios and other masterpieces...

What the hell took him there?

And it was his very last film. Perhaps that explains every thing...

I must say that I was astonished. As if Steven Seagal made a faithful adaptation of William Shakespeare...
