Larry Karaszewski on

Dark of the Sun

Released 1968
Distributor MGM

Elite commandos Rod Taylor and Jim Brown, mercenaries on a Congo strike mission, tangle with murderous rebels while seeking a fortune in hidden diamonds in Jack Cardiff’s ultra-violent action classic. A Tarantino favorite. For years this has been hard to see in its original form but is now available in a new widescreen transfer with every bullet hit and body blow intact. Released overseas as The Mercenaries.
