      Comments about Five Man Army, The:

      IT WAS AN INSPIRED MOVE FOR PRODUCER ITALO ZINGARELLI TO CAST PETER GRAVES IN THIS EFFORT-FOR FIVE MAN ARMY INCORPORATES THE THEMES OF MISSION:IMPOSSIBLE, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN AND THE ITALO WESTERN IN WHICH ADVENTURER PETER GRAVES ORCHESTRATES THE THEFT OF A CACHE OF MEXICAN GOLD. TO EXECUTE THIS TASK, GRAVES COMMANDS THE TALENTS OF GAMBLER JAMES DALY, STRONGMAN BUD SPENCER, SAMURAI SPECIALIST TETSURO TAMBA(YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE) AND ACROBAT NINO CASTLENUOVO. DIRECTOR DON TAYLOR KEEPS HIS INTERNATIONAL CAST ON THE MOVE, A DECIDED ASSET GIVEN THE CAPER ASPECTS OF THE STORY. THE FILM IS EFFECTIVELY EDITED TO A SOUND 105 MINUTES. ENNIO MORRICONE, WHO CRAFTED THE ORIGINAL MAN-WITH-NO-NAME SCORES, PERFORMS COMPARABLE MASTERY FOR THIS EFFORT. A SOLID ADDITION TO THE ITALO WESTERN GENRE.

        Comments about Five Man Army, The:

        IT WAS AN INSPIRED MOVE FOR PRODUCER ITALO ZINGARELLI TO CAST PETER GRAVES IN THIS ITALO OATER FOR FIVE MAN ARMY UTILIZES THE MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE CONCEPT WITH THAT OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN AND THE MAN-WITH-NO-NAME WESTERN IN THIS STORY OF ADVENTURER GRAVES ORCHESTRATING THE THEFT OF A CACHE OF MEXICAN GOLD. TO THIS TASK, HE COMMANDS THE TALENTS OF GUNFIGHTER JAMES DALY, STRONGMAN BUD SPENCER AND SAMURAI SPECIALIST TETSURO TAMBA (YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE). HAVING DEFINED THE INDIVIDUAL CHARACTERS AND THE LANDSCAPE, DIRECTOR DON TAYLOR KEEPS HIS INTERNATIONAL CAST ON THE MOVE IN THIS HIGH PRODUCTION VALUE EFFORT - SUPERBLY EDITED TO 105 MINUTES. ENNIO MORRICONE, WHO CRAFTED THE ORIGINAL CLINT EASTWOOD-ITALO WESTERN SCORES, PERFORMS COMPARABLE MASTERY FOR THIS ADDITION TO THE GENRE.

        " VIVA LA REVOLUTION "

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Five Man Army, The:

        This is the full uncut version 110 minutes ( European cut 101mns) includes the opening scene at the Mexican-U.S border and two brief shoots from the scene in the Mexican Captain's office: The female topless and samurai split the captain's skull with his sword.
        The print looks better than ever only a few bad frames and some marks nothing to worried about.
        Also good quality transfer.
        The audio track is clean and clear.

        HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

          I saw this movie over 40 years ago. I have waited all this time to own my own copy. I enjoyed the Mission: Impossible type Western. And Ennio Morricone's music is wonderfully unforgettable. I have seen the movie several times, and will see it and hear several more times.
          As for Service/Delivery: Zero complaints.
