OK - But could have been better,
This review is from: The Dogs Of War [DVD] (DVD)
If I had read the book then I have forgotten it - so I can't comment on how it relates to the book. I was pleasantly surprised that this was not an over the top Rambo style adventure, and on the whole it is a fairly down beat story with a fairly stark portrayal of the (fictional) African country where most of the story takes place, and the life of an 'off-duty' mercenary in England.
The story is very much focussed on one man and I fealt that most of the other characters were too thinly sketched to really appreciate - decreasing some of the tension about what happens to them. The music and image at the end as the credits start is very atmospheric - and a highlight. I think this could have been done better - but is an OK watch.
