Rudolf Hess: What I have done in my past, is done. Whether I regret or not is not something I discuss with you now. I have had a long time to think, so many years, so many things to think about and to remember.

A worthless mission leads to a worthless film.
25 May 1999 | by yenloSee all my reviews

Unlike 1978's The Wild Geese which was chock full of story, action and even some moral values this apparent sequel comes up short on all accounts. A plan to spring Nazi War criminal Rudolf Hess from his cell in Spandau prison by a team of Mercenaries is the basis of the movie. The story is slow and fails to establish any likeable characters as the original did. Sadly Richard Burton who was to recreate the Colonel Faulkner role died before filming began and was replaced by Edward Fox who seems shallow in his performance. As the film progresses the viewer keeps waiting for something to get going but it never seems to. In all a sad disappointment.
