Christopher Walken (Pennies from Heaven, Heaven's Gate, The Deer Hunter) is a brutal mercenary who must fight the ultimate battle - against his own conscience - in this powerful action thriller with a "heart-thumping tempo" (The Hollywood Reporter). The Dogs of War is a spectacular adventure that brilliantly captures the glory - and horror - of war. Jamie Shannon (Walken) is a cynical warrior-for-hire who feels truly alive only in the heat of battle, and now he's about to take on the most challenging assignment of his career: to invade a corrupt African dictatorship and shift control to the "puppet" of a powerful British corporation. To prepare, Shannon masterfully trains and equips a squad of deadly mercenaries with the latest and most destructive tactics and military hardware. But as their explosive assault begins, Shannon finds himself embroiled in an internal conflict of his own: Will this be his greatest triumph, or has he sold his soul along with his battle expertise? Tom Berenger (Platoon, Last Rites, Major League), Paul Freeman (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Sender, The Final Option), Hugh Millais (Images, The Wicked Lady), JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist, Teachers, American Dreamers), and Colin Blakely (Equus, Nijinsky, The Big Sleep) co-star in this explosive action film, skillfully directed by John Irvin (Hamburger Hill, Next of Kin, Raw Deal) and beautifully filmed by award-winning D.P. Jack Cardiff (The African Queen, Dark of the Sun, The Awakening). Deal). Now see this film from a brand new 2K master!
