This action-adventure film is based on a novel by Edgar Wallace. In the story, Colonel Smith (Ernest Borgnine) is an aging military man whose son is a CIA agent. His son has been captured by a bevy of iron-curtain bad-guys involved in a civil war in the African country of Angola, and Col. Smith is determined to rescue him. He puts together a group of military types to effect the rescue, and runs afoul of all sorts of nefarious characters in the process, including an East German military advisor (Robert Vaughn) and a shady diamond company security chief (Oliver Reed). Lovely Sam (Nancy Mulford) adds visual interest to the rescue team, and manages some dandy hand-to-hand combat moves. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

This is a slow tedious movie. Ernest Borgnine plays an old military man whose son, a CIA agent helping rebels, is captured by government forces. The movie concerns Borgnine trying to free his son. Borgnine is far past his prime and he moves slowly because he is badly over weight. It is almost painful to watch, especially if you are a Borgnine fan like I am. Skip this one. There are better.
