Synopsis: Screen legends Richard Burton, Roger Moore and Richard Harris star as a team of aging mercenaries hired by a wealthy industrialist for one final mission: Recruit and train a squad of desperate commandos, parachute into an unstable African nation, snatch its deposed President from a maximum security army prison, escape via the military-controlled airport, and massacre anyone who gets in their way. Getting to the target will be murder. But when the group is double-crossed, getting out alive may be impossible. Hardy Kruger (A BRIDGE TOO FAR), Frank Finlay (THE THREE MUSKETEERS), Barry Foster (FRENZY) and Stewart Granger (KING SOLOMON’S MINES) co-star in this blood & guts action classic, now packed with all-new Bonus Features and fully re-mastered in explosive HD for the first time ever in America!
