Christopher Walken is one of a kind. Those piercing eyes, angular face, and most interestingly his characteristic halting, syncopated speech — his image and persona are so singularly ingrained in our collective experience that we simply accept him as a necessary and wonderful part of our film landscape. Their motivation is greed, not politics. Eventually Plan B is chosen, and Jamie rounds up his old outfit to join him on the job that might make them all rich. Personal freedoms are violated and corruption abounds. Walken gets a chance to chew the scenery with some crazy line deliveries, and the confident camera work of the legendary Jack Cardiff reminds us of his own directorial mercenary tale, Dark Of The Sun. Despite being a soldier of fortune, the key to Jamie is that he actually has a strong moral compass and a sense of social justice.
