'The Wild Geese' is one of my favourite films and I watch it at least a couple of times a year. I first saw at the cinema when it was released, I loved it then, and it never fails to delight me now. Firstly, as I point out in the title of this review, it is a piece of cinema history, bringing together three giants of the British cinema in the 70s & 80s - Burton, Moore & Harris. Secondly, it is a cracking film in its own right. It never flags, has plenty of action, humour and most of all it just is such a good representation of the late 70s - Concorde, mercenaries, perms, you name it, it's got it. It's 'The Professionals' territory: shady government departments, shady big business deals , even the Mafia are thrown in. Wonderful. See it and enjoy it. It is rich in classic lines. Among my favourites are Burton saying to Harris 'Julius Limbani is alive!' 'I don't care!' Harris states. To which Burton replies 'Yes you do! If there's one African leader you do care about, it's Julius Limbani!'; Burton sinking a glass of red wine given him by Harris, pulling a face and saying 'Disgusting!' to which Harris replies 'Yes isn't it' and refills his glass; Jack Watson as the RSM at the beginning of the mercenaries' training - 'Right! Let's try for our first heart attack, shall we?'; Barry Foster giving Burton a telephone number 'at which I can always be reached' - oh, how did we manage in those days without mobiles!!!!??? I could go on and on. Suffice to say, a classic.
