The Medusa Touch, Equus and the wild geese are all outstanding.
Maybe the wild geese is the best of the trio.
The blu Ray transfer is excellent with natural colours and accurate lighting.
The plot is well known and contains an assortment of stereotypes that can may you cringe at times.
Thankfully the sum of the movie is better than its parts and everything fits together beautifully.
The political correct brigade will probably be horrified by the movie. That's only to expected when people take movies like this too seriously and don't like having fun.
The wild geese has a great cast of aging legends and household names from a bygone age.
That only increases one pleasure when watching an essential action movie such as the wild geese
Some would balk at some very un-pc stuff in the film but I for one just love, nay drool, over this kind of free flowing entertainment, like 'Where Eagles Dare', 'The Guns Of Navarone', 'Cross Of Iron'............
One complaint----- no English subtitles, but the film is so profoundly a 1970's epoch I can't steal a star away. And, to be sure, made in the days when you could recognize actors who didn't wear camouflage make-up and steel helmets in war films to obscure their identities ('Black Hawk Down' --- how many well known 'faces' did I miss in that?).
The geek in me offers you this ----- the sons of two iconic greats have minor appearances as 'wild geese' : David Ladd and Glyn Baker, whose dads were Alan and Stanley and were no strangers to appearing in the odd classic themselves.
I know commentaries are not to everyone's liking but this one is a real shame, considering the actors in it. It could have been fascinating.
