5.0 su 5 stelle an overlooked European western with an Oriental flavor 5 novembre 2016
Di H. Bala - Pubblicato su
Formato: DVD Acquisto verificato
Red Sun - or, if you're the pretentious sort, "Soleil rouge" - is an ambitious mash-up of two cinematic fads that ran rampant in the 1970s: the stylish European western and the Asian martial arts spectacle, or, to be more specific to THIS movie, the chambara (or samurai) opera. "Chambara" - for those who dunno - and now who's being pretentious, eh? - is an onomatopoeia that describes the sound of swords clashing. Red Sun premiered in 1971 and boasted an all-star international cast, anchored by Charles Bronson (he starred in The Magnificent Seven) and Toshirô Mifune (he starred in The Seven Samurai, the movie that The Magnificent Seven remade).

Plot: It would've been just another day for the outlaw Link (Bronson) and his robbing crew if only they'd kept to victimizing the normal passengers on that train. But, no, they had to venture into the car housing the Japanese delegation what's enroute to see the President. And there's one of Link's more temperamental bandits, the Frenchman Gauche (Alain Delon), quite taken with the ceremonial sword meant as a gift to POTUS. Gauche is one of those sleek sleazebags you shouldn't really have in your crew because sure as sh-- he'll sooner or later turn on you. That there is called foreshadowing.

Link isn't enamored of Gauche's show of brutality and tries to rein him in. So Gauche turns on him, leaves him for dead. When Link regains consciousness, he's rarin' to go reappropriate the train loot and have some, uh, harsh words with his turncoat. But the Japanese ambassador charges him with guiding his extraordinary samurai bodyguard, Kuroda Jubie (Mifune), across a forbidding wasteland in pursuit of Gauche. Kuroda is given seven days to recover the sword, else he must perform hara-kiri, which is an extreme form of acupuncture. "We don't have horses, and Gauche has a two-hour head start. He's got twenty mean guns to back him up!" protests our outlaw. Yeah, Link requires serious convincing. But it bears repeating that Kuroda is an extraordinary samurai bodyguard. Link gets convinced.

Just to get it out of the way, I'll mention that this film could've done with the Ennio Morricone touch. As it were, the score, at least to me, is forgettable. Apart from that bit of grousing, I think Red Sun is just about a perfect movie. The international production promises - and lives up to - a series of intriguing one-on-one exchanges and diverse group dynamics. Bronson and Mifune are very good together. It's their caustic interplay that generates the film's wickedly sly humor. And maybe it's because of the change of pace, but Bronson is less wooden in this one. He seems more relaxed, and this translates to a more loose performance. French heartthrob Alain Delon is magnetic as the viperish big bad, a curious juxtaposition from how charming and raffish he was as Zorro. As for French ex-fashion model Capucine and Swiss sex goddess Ursula Andress, well, just look at them. Full disclosure, I was so mesmerized with each of them when they were on screen that maybe they acted, maybe they didn't. Either way, I was entertained.

So, brief eruptions of brutal swordfighting meet wild pistolero action, with Mifune and Bronson handling their badassss business. As much as Bronson dabbled in the gritty crime thriller, there's something very cool to his starring in westerns. Bronson boasted a sculpted frame and a face what's craggy and timeworn like an eroded cliffside. Factor that mug and his trademark laconic persona, and you've got the ideal makings of a rugged frontier man so beloved by the camera. Put Bronson's brand of laconic cool with Mifune's brand of laconic simmer, and observe their clashing perspectives on duty and honor, and what we get are several canny observations on culture clash and on Eastern philosophy versus western braggadocio. Hell, maybe I'll start calling it Soleil rouge or maybe Jane Austen's Red Sun. This sucker's more fancy pants than I thought.

1.0 su 5 stelle Beware of Well Packaged Bootleg 6 dicembre 2010

Movie excellent Bronson/Mifune; DVD release horrible. I received the version with the white backdrop with the red sun and color sketch of Bronson, Mifune, Andres, and Stamp on the cover. On the packaging Evergreen Entertainment is indicated as the DVD producer; in the Amazon description it refers to Evergreen as the Studio. It looks like quatlity from the outside and says it has been remastered and that format is letterbox. Not true. It is a poor transfer form a video and is cropped, not even close to letterbox and the sound is poorly mastered. Even the menu mispells words. Amazon has really confounded reviews that try to protect other buyers of DVDs and CDs by combining the reviews for all prints of movies and CDs. Good luck in sifting through the offerings now. I will get a good print and letterbox of this movie if I can find one with confidence, but cannot so far.
5.0 su 5 stelle The cowboy & the samurai! 19 dicembre 2016
Di Douglas Kaiura - Pubblicato su

One of my favorite Charles Bronson's films, it was recently digitally remastered. Bronson plays a train robber who is nearly killed when Alain Delon decides to take over. Besides taking all of the gold Delon also takes a samurai sword that is being presented to the American President. Toshiro Mifune plays a samurai guarding the sword. Mifune has 7 days to bring back the sword or face hara-kiri. Bronson reluctantly agrees to allow Mifune to tag along as he gets his revenge and gets back his stolen gold. The exchanges between Bronson and Mifune are priceless. Usula Andress portrays Delon's girlfriend. Capucine also is in the film as a brothel proprietress. Directed by acclaimed director Terence Young (From Russia with Love) Several flashes of nudity. Great climax as they fight Indians. Indians not portrayed by natives, an clearly speaking non native language. Excellent action western.

One of the few movies where you get to hear Mifune's undubbed performance. Directed by the man who gave us the best of the James Bond films, great acting by a great cast doing their own stunts (even Alain Delon drops down through a hole in the roof that must have been 12 feet high at least), and great location cinematography, and the best print I have ever seen of this film. Great.
5.0 su 5 stelle East and West: The samurai and the bank robber 22 novembre 2014
Di J. Kemp - Pubblicato su

This movie has 2 starring actors, Charles Bronson and Japanese samurai actor Toshiro Mifune. It was made when Charles Bronson and Mifune were younger and less famous. It is, I think, the only movie in which Toshiro Mifune speaks English. He sounds very impressive, though he only memorized the lines and did not know English. It is a very entertaining Western, with great scenery and action. Bandits rob a train which carries a Japanese ambassador and his attendants.
The Bronson character, an outlaw is recruited to help the Mifune character, a samurai, to retrieve a precious sword which was to be a gift to the President; if it is not recovered within a week, the Ambassador and the samurai are obliged by honor to disembowel themselves; after doing the same for the Bronson character, of course.
The American outlaw is sure that he is much superior to the Japanese greenhorn when it comes to tracking the robbers and handling the wilderness, is disillusioned in numerous scenes.
The samurai's sense of honor seems to rub off on the outlaw. When the samurai is killed retrieving the sword, the outlaw promises to return the sword to the Ambassador. How he manages this, I will leave you to watch.
