Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This mixture of the rough (Lee Marvin) and the smooth (Roger Moore) wasn't such a good idea, even if the oddball partnership was supposed to be for king and country in the First World War. Based on the Wilbur Smith novel, the tale follows the undynamic duo as they set out to sabotage a German cruiser berthed in an East African delta. There's more action - rampaging natives, malaria, ticking time bombs - than you'd expect, but, as neither hero is very likeable, you really don't care. Moore did better in a similar role when he teamed with Tony Curtis for The Persuaders TV series.
