Viewing Notes

The cast assembled for this is unbelievable. Few films can match this in those terms. The movie itself is nearly a disaster and I can see why it was so critically panned. But I gotta give major props for putting both Toshiro Mifune and Christopher Lee in the same scenes. Yes, this is mess but a wildly entertaining mess.
