RED SUN (1971)

Well, do we need a reason to watch Charles Bronson, Toshiro Mifune, Alain Delon and sizzling Ursula Andress altogether in this west meets east or western meets samurai film! The film was made by Terrence Young, the director of Bond classics such as ‘Dr. No’ and ‘To Russia With Love’ and he kept intact the entertainment with ingredients of action, fun and even showing you the assets of Ursula undress!
It begins with train robbery and double cross followed by the hunt for the man named Gauche who stole the treasure and a valuable gold samurai sword. There are moments of entertaining fun between chemistry of juxtaposed westerner Bronson and samurai Mifune. For Delon, it’s less meaty role and lesser in terms of screen presence. Not essential one for western afficianados, but no harm watching once for Mifune fans as the man remained committed to his profession even in this commercial Hollywood.
