      After watching - running account

      1. Edward in the United States is very similar to Lincoln, and some insinuate that the United States is the black hand behind the scenes.

      2. It turns out that the mercenaries have to die if they are wounded on the battlefield, in order not to implicate their comrades.

      3. The education of foreign children, parents divorced, the father can also die, and grow up under the love of the godfather.

      4. A large group of elderly people in their sixties also formed death...

      forever wild goose

      The first time I watched it, I was in the fifth grade of elementary school. I went back to Chengdu from Shanghai to visit relatives. I asked my father to take me to watch this movie. My father found in the newspaper that the Armed Police Auditorium was just on display, so he rode a bicycle to watch it with me. I'm a movie-loving dad, so I first met Roger Moore's best 007 actor) (Richard Burton (Anthony in Cleopatra, Elizabeth's only love), Richard Harris (Cassandra Dr. Chamberlain in the...

      Memories are always good

      I remember a long time ago, when I was very young, I watched a movie on TV about special forces. I only remember that it was a group of special forces sent by the United Nations to rescue the president of a country somewhere in Africa. The battle was pretty good. Intense, the movie is very beautiful...The most memorable scene is the raid on the prison, rescued the president, and then was bombed by planes, with heavy casualties, forced to kill oneself personally, and finally at the airport with...

      Abandoned brave and regained the flames of war

      Before they officially started their mission, I probably predicted who would die. Reif and Sandy are already the best candidates (although they were still worried the moment they boarded the plane)-Faulkner talked to them before departure. And it's so godly, so lonely. "We all know that we will not die, but God does not know." On the way they saved people and fleeing, I also predicted that Sean is too handsome, he has been smoking cigars when he was a secretary, so he won’t die, Faulkner, there...

          , woke up at night in Jingtian , Shenzhen , and went to go to the net. When I watched the introduction of Raging Sea Fighting on eDonkey, I suddenly saw a paragraph: Not long before the filming, Crowe got news that his friend Richard Harris, who had filmed "Gladiator" with him, had passed away!
          Suddenly, Richard Harris is dead? !

          I immediately searched the Internet and found that it was really dead....

      I saw this film in the early 1980s, and I vaguely remember that this should be the first film of the same type I have seen. I was very excited when I saw the last episode of evacuation. 30 years later, I saw it on the Internet and watched it again, and I still think that as a movie at that time, it is still...

    Evaluation action

    The British film "The Wild Geese" (1978) shows us the tortuous and complicated encounters of the commandos in the course of carrying out their missions, which is very visible. The story is that the British banker Edhua obtained the right to mine copper in Africa and hired Colonel Faulkner with a lot of money to form a 50-man mercenary to a certain country in Africa to take a hostage-the deposed Zhu Li President Si Limbany, a tyrant...
