Bulgaria near the end of World War I: Conan, warrior and wolf, leads a band of 50 ruthless French fighters who love hand-to-hand combat. Their motto: "We forgot to take prisoners, Captain." At war's end, the unit goes to Bucharest, where Conan tries to keep them out of trouble, defends them when they behave as warriors, and finds he's unsuited for peacetime. His friendship with Norbert, a teacher turned lieutenant, is tested when Norbert accepts a job as court-martial prosecutor because he's learned that Conan will be facing charges and he wants to protect his friend. When they are sent to the Russian border to fight Bolsheviks, Conan is back in his element and Norbert is off the hook.

Mark A (it) wrote: A sad little film in which a financially troubled university student begins turning tricks to finance her education and living expenses and quickly gets in over her head. Similar in subject matter to A Call Girl, from Slovenia, this girl seemed to be more easily duped and less in control of her situation. According to the blurb at the end, this is a common occurrence in Europe. The acting is passable, the scenery nondescript and the sex is pretty chaste. An entertaining film, but not, by any means, great cinema.

David F (ag) wrote: I have a few reviews that are unfortunately detailing movies that were a disappointment to me personally, so I thought I should review a movie that really impressed me. This film has already garnered award consideration, and clearly has favorable reviews here on this site. This is really a coming out for director Sean Baker, even though not his first time at the helm. He really has a great eye for painting a picture on screen for us the viewer. Filmed in a great location, with solid performances by Prince Adu and Karren Karagulian. Films like this are great, because they get nowhere near the praise they deserve from the masses, so later when true movie buffs seek out new gems, they just might find a film like this.

Justin R (es) wrote: Neither the plot or the acting are particularly credible, and whilst Balwin's villain does have some charisma it doesn't particularly gel with the other elements of the film. Despite some thriller aspects to the movie the action sequences are fairly lack-lustre, so overall it is watchable but a bit plodding.

Matthew H (jp) wrote: I don't know why people have a problem with dark Ninja Turtles. Anyway, the third movie isn't ' Good.' but at the same time, its not ' Bad' either. Yeah, there are plot holes so big you can literally fall in them. But the one plot hole i really can't rap my head around is at 10:00 minutes in the movie, there is a scroll with a picture of four turtle warriors. Did the very past predict a future when the turtles would go back in time to save a moment in the past? Who even wrote the scroll to begin with and why is it never mentioned to the turtles? Its time traveling movies like this that make me wish the Doctor would travel back and fix everything, so everything can become clear. If you can cross-over Power Rangers with the Ninja Turtles, then why not make a Doctor Who cross-over? It just might be less painful to watch. ' Might.'
Matthew L (gb) wrote: The film benefits massively from removing Harry from San Francisco to a small costal town, with Eastwood as solid in the role as ever. Personally some of his direction lets him down as does the editing at times. But with a strong nod to Christies 'Murder On The Orient Express' this also makes Harry more human than previous entries in the series and this should have been the last as well.

Unfortunately he is also slowly losing his eyesight, with his vision now so impaired that one more punch could cause complete loss of sight.The movie begins with Clay (Cameron Mitchell) escaping from imprisonment, and intent on getting revenge on the man who set him up. The man in question is Fox (George Riviere), who has appointed himself as the Sheriff of Clay's hometown and abuses this power, with the townsfolk living in terror of his gang. They had initially paid Fox to protect them from bandit Ortiz (played by the ever excellent Fernando Sancho), who himself terrorises the town. In the middle of these two waring parties is Clay's daughter, Nancy, who believes her father is dead, and thinks Clay is merely a local hero. They are reunited, but caught in the crossfire between the two gangs, co-ordinated mischievously by Estella (Ethel Rojo) who is as devious as she is beautiful (and my is she beautiful!).Minnesota Clay is one of the earliest Spaghetti Westerns, directed by a pre-Django Sergio Corbucci. Whilst it is not as captivating or as dark as the films he directed during the Spaghetti boom of 1966-1970, it is still a very enjoyable movie, with the usual sprinkling of injustice that we have come to expect within his films. 4 Stars 11-27-13Mitchell, Sancho and Riviere are captivating throughout, and Rojo could win the heart of any man with her portrayal of Estella (no wonder her character is so able to use those around her so ably). My only complaint would be the vocal overdub on the English soundtrack for the characters of Nancy (drippy) and Andy (who comes over as a Frank Spencer type character - apologies to any non-English readers that may not understand this comparison!). Once you get used to these minor grumbles about the overdub (which, honestly, does not take too long), you can really start to enjoy Minnesota Clay for the highly watchable film that it

Neil O (mx) wrote: Delightful old-fashioned' comedy, loosely inspired by events in the life of Irish tenor Josef Locke. Ned Beatty gives a great performance as the Irish charmer and plays the role with the robust presence of a man who, finding himself on a stage, would know exactly what to do there. Cinematographer Sue Gibson works magic with the Irish countryside whilst director Chelsom shows no mercy in dishing out the blarney, much the way the returned Locke sings "Come Back to Sorrento" and "Goodbye" to the teary crowd at Micky's nightclub (Beatty expertly lipsyncs the vocals of Vernon Midgley).
