Codename Wildgeese

Codename Wildgeese

Antonio Margheriti (1984)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Ridiculous European commando movie which bears absolutely no relation to the Richard Burton/Roger Moore action classic. What we get instead is a very sullen Lewis Collins leading a motley crew of mercenaries in a fight against an opium warlord in South East Asia. Plenty of explosions and car chases ensue, plus a fair quota of brutality; Lee Van Cleef and Ernest Borgnine seem to be in the cast purely to make up the numbers. Directed by Anthony Dawson (real name Antonio Margheriti), the film's working title was Wild Geese 5, despite the fact they'd never even been a Wild Geese 3 or 4.


A band of mercenaries are hired to battle a Burmese opium warlord dominating the Golden Triangle area of southeast Asia. Action adventure, starring Lewis Collins, Lee Van Cleef, Ernest Borgnine and Klaus Kinski. In Italian.
