This Foreign Legion adventure caper [from a screen story by David Zelag Goodman and Dick Richards], replete with international cast and crew, has lots of actionful battle scenes, a few squeamish torture scenes, and beautiful photography on actual locations.

Terence Hill, the Italian actor with the Yankee name, shows a tongue-in-cheek approach to his role that allows him to dominate every scene he’s in. Also first rate is Britisher Ian Holm, as El Krim, the fanatic Arab chieftain.

Biggest disappointment is the ‘acting’ of Gene Hackman who walks listlessly through the major role of a washed-out West Pointer who has given 16 years of his life to the Legion.

This is the film in which Hackman suffered a back injury but there’s no indication of it. The most physical activity he undergoes is riding a horse.
