About The Wild Geese

The Wild Geese box art

In an effort to advance its own business interests, a British conglomerate sends a group of aging mercenaries (Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris and Hardy Kruger) into the African wilderness to rescue an influential political leader. Problems arise when the mercenaries accomplish their mission but the company decides to strike a deal with the enemy, an oppressive military dictator. This testosterone fest pumps out plenty of action.
