Reviews

In 1918, Major Foster (Gene Hackman) of the French Foreign Legion is recommended to accompany and protect the archaeological expedition being led by Marneau (Max Von Sydow). Foster, who regards Marneau's activities as little better than grave robbing, reluctantly obeys, but the excavation offends Arab leader El Krim (Ian Holm), who incites his tribe to attack the foreign interlopers.

This is a well-produced and finely crafted film - the quality on DVD is excellent, you almost feel that you are with the characters. It has some outstandingly emotional moments - a young French mother starting to sing La Marseillaise in the Paris railway station had me almost in tears right at the beginning of the film - but there are one or two occasions when the story starts to lose it. The whole plot is entirely credible, even if a couple of scenes leave you with your jaw on the floor and there are some truly magical moments to compensate. The cast is outstanding with perhaps the sole exception of Gene Hackman - his role really should have been given to someone with a tad more empathy for French culture, whereas Ian Holm gives a surprisingly fine portrayal of El Krim the Moroccan tribal leader. If you are looking for constant action, then maybe this is not your bag, but this has class written all over it and I am more than happy to have it in my DVD collection for a repeat viewing in the future :-)

Format: DVD
March or Die was one of a number of massive box-office disasters that nearly brought Columbia to its knees until CE3K rescued it from the brink. On the surface it belongs alongside the trilogy of mid-70s adventure films that Sean Connery made for the studio, with Gene Hackman's embittered Foreign Legionnaire reluctantly leading his surviving men to protect Max Von Sydow's archaeological dig. It's a perfectly workable premise for an adventure but it never really works. It's a schizophrenic film at best, and not just because of the usual international co-production vagaries: Gene Hackman is starring in a bleak, revisionist drama while Terence Hill is starring in an old-fashioned swashbuckler, and despite John Alcott's strikingly subdued photography neither strand quite works - not enough panache or too much depending on whose turn it is in the spotlight. The final (and only) battle scene is a particularly odd affair, with Hackman's character behaving very oddly indeed, depriving the audience of the expected climax in a way that seems more bizarre and just plain wrong than innovative.

Heavy pre-release cutting probably didn't help (the original US TV broadcast included a number of deleted sequences, including an additional battle scene), but this is more an interesting failure than a successful reinvention of a subgenre it all but killed off for good. It certainly managed to kill of director Dick Richards' career. Yet for all that, it's not a complete disaster - there's still enough to like in the film and draw you back to it from time to time even if it does seen a missed opportunity.

The fullframe DVD is a decent transfer with no loss of picture area (although the Australian DVD is in widescreen), but there are no extras: a shame, as it would have been interesting to see the deleted scenes, and the film's trailer was a very good example of wildly overhyping a film (it pitched it as an experience that would become one of the most important of your life!).

"March or Die" has been released twice on DVD in the UK. 1st on Carlton (Prism Leisure) which is a grubby VHS quality version then released again on ITV DVD which has far superior picture quality. Both are still on the market so check the lables before you buy.

Made in 1977 with a cast including Gene Hackman, Max von Sydow, Terence Hill and the delicious Catherine Deneuve, this film attempts to recreate the great Foreign Legion stories of Beau Geste as played by Gary Cooper and Ronald Coleman. It doesn't quite come off. The film, whilst enjoyable per se, leaves you with the feeling of what might have been with a tighter script and better direction in the action scenes. Too many lost opportunities to make a really good epic. I don't think P.C. Wren would have been impressed.

With a great cast this film should have been brilliant but it fritters everything away for a limp ending and avoidance of key action and narrative. I may even be being generous. With stunning scenery, some interesting characters and a building plot this has all the components of a great Legionnary film. Yet at the end the climax is weak, the characters fall apart and you are left screaming " is that it" It should have been brilliant but it is only mediocre

A truly excellent war film which I really enjoyed. As usual, Gene Hackman was at his very best and didn't disapoint.
