Red Sun: Tony's Comments
This enjoyable tale of east meets west sees Charles Bronson and Toshiro Mifune team up to retrieve a stolen samurai sword. "Red Sun" features an all-star international cast including, Hollywood heavyweight Charles Bronson, swiss beauty Ursula Andress, Asian superstar Toshiro Mifune and French stars Alain Delon and Capucine. James Bond director, Terence Young (Dr. No & Thunderball) does a great job with this fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek, western adventure which has that special novelty of seeing a professional gunfighter team up with a skilled samurai. Charles Bronson gives a likeable performance and the culture clash scenes with Mifune are a hoot. "Red Sun" is good quality western entertainment, with high production values, exciting action sequences, and an intriguing original premise. A hollywood western with a flavorsome spaghetti taste.
