Put a little Captain in ya...
Michael Caine is perhaps the last actor you'd think of to portray a ruthless German mercenary captain during the Thirty Years' War. But here he is, resplendently equipped with armor, swords, daggers and a very trusty wheelock pistol.
Sure, his accent fades in and out, but director James Clavell gives him some great dialogue to chew on, and a batch of excellent character actors to play off of.
Excellent music and outdoor photography finish it all off.
