3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Film April 10 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I first saw this movie when it was originally released and enjoyed it very much. It is an excellent action packed movie. The purpose of this review is I was very disappointed because the movie I received has been edited. That's the reason for my rating of 3 stars versus 5. Certain action scenes have been cut, either partly or altogether, and some dialog has been voiced over or deleted. Even the final scene, which is the culmination of the anger of Taylor losing his friend was altered. If you do order this movie attempt to make sure it is the original cut, which is much better than the version I received.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most brutal film ever made! March 12 2013
Format:DVD
Dark of the Sun is a cinema classic, one of Rod Taylor's (The Birds, The Time Machine, etc.)greatest roles. Directed by master cinematographer Jack Cardiff this is a one of kind film that boasts some of the most brutal scenes ever captured on film. The cast includes Yvette Mimieux, Kenneth More as the drunken doctor, Jim Brown as Taylor's fellow mercenary friend, and in the best performance of his career Peter Carsten as the Nazi loving German mercenary, a couple of his scenes rank amongst the most shocking in cinema history. In addition this film was only rated PG, which makes you wonder if they watched it when they rated it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Done Jan. 24 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A good representation of what was really taking place in the Congo in the 60's and is still going on today. Storyline is plausible and well executed. If the veiwer does a little research of the period,the film is much more entertaining. Laurent Kabila, the assassinated president of the Congo was one of the leaders of the Simbas back then,along with Che Guevera. The acting could be a little stronger, but overall not a bad film at all. This film helped to bring 'Mercenaries' to the spotlight and out of hushed conversation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Owning Dec 16 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
An extremely entertaining film that can be watched over and over again through the years. This is due not only to the riveting action-packed sequences, but also to the plausibility of the story. For example, the primary objective of the mercenaries and of the men who hire them is absolutely believable. In addition, the revolting atrocities that the real-life Simbas perpetrated are not shied away from in this film (a more graphic description would have been impossible in the 1960s; even today, it would command an X-Rating for the almost unbelievable violence that was, as a matter of historical record, committed -- e.g., young children raped in front of their parents).
There are some negatives, to be sure, not least of which is the indifferent direction and mediocre acting. Jim Brown, in particular, is almost embarrassingly bad. And the ending, without giving anything away, is certainly disappointing -- self-righteous and silly.
Still, "Dark of the Sun" is a most entertaining viewing experience, and I strongly recommend owning it. In addition, I suggest having the Wilbur Smith book on which it's based as a companion piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Action Film on Mercenaries Dec 11 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Two mercenaries plan and execute an operation to retrieve diamonds under the guise of a mission to rescue civilians from a remote village deep in the Congo. Rod Taylor is in fine form as the Commander and Jim Brown (former Pro-Football star) does a credible job portraying Taylor's right-hand, idealistic mercenary. The actor (can't remember his name) who portrays the Ex-Nazi merc on the mission is downright villianous. The heat is turned up on Taylor and Brown with their government-supplied force of soldiers, racing against time to negotiate UN lines and out-manuever a larger force of rebel Cimbas that threaten the town. All of this executed on a train specially modified for the mission, and later on vehicles stolen from the Cimba forces. The action is good, and surprisingly violent for a movie of this time, which must have raised audiences' eyebrows. Later on there is a chase sequence with Taylor in a Toyota Landcruiser, pursuing the Ex-Nazi merc who betrayed him, providing great advertisment on the vehicle's rugged reputation. The instumental music soundtrack for the movie has a distinctive "60s" appeal and provides an attractive background for the film.
Overall a very good action film, but parents should exercise discretion against letting their younger kids watch this. The cinematography is good and this film deserves to have a letter-box edition. Overall a good film.
