I was reading this thread from the start and, Dark of the Sun better than Apocalipse Now… :o some strange stuff going around here, and I even like Dark of the sun one of the few movies I saw with my father (he said that those parabellum and Sten paratrooper machine guns, are not of very good use in the African warfare, they are good weapons for close range, not for the jungle)
Well but let’s talk about this movie, good but far from being a classic. I got very different feelings when I was seing this film, sometimes it looked like a normal American western others like a regular SW, it does not even look like one of those american western shot in Almeria.
Alex Cord goes well in the main part playing the disturbed hero, but I do feel the lack of some SW “grinta” that only more SW can brought to an actor. Robert Ryan it’s a little bit wasted on the film in my view, it look like the guy was passing by and join in at the last moment.
In any case always an interesting film to see of so strange it is, at the begining I was a little confused with the story I confesed, but soon the film does go to right on track, or at least doesn’t go off the tracks, it’s a good spag but could have been better, it got me confused in every aspect sometimes looked like ALmeria scenario others Italy, weird wierd very weird.
Didn’t like the soundtrack also, to me it looked like some bad Shadows rip off
Diferent SW, watchable without the lost of time sensantion, but like I said not a classic, and it’s a pitty with Robert Ryan in it.
