Keep Him Alive Long Enough
Red Sun is the type of film they mean when they talk about international production. American Charles Bronson, Japanese Toshiro Mifune, German Ursula Andress, French Alain Delon, Italian Capucine and for good measure this film was shot on the plains of Spain which did not look like they’d seen much rain by Englishman Terrence Young.
The film concerns the train robbery of a gang in which Alain Delon is in charge. The money isn’t enough for Delon, the train is carrying some Japanese passengers with a ceremonial samurai sword, a gift from their Emperor to our president. Two of three Japanese are killed, the mistake Delon makes when he decides the sword would make a nice souvenir is that he lives a real live Samurai in Toshiro Mifune alive with a vengeance quest. Delon makes a second mistake in double crossing Charles Bronson and not killing him as well. Bronson is a member of his gang who cuts all ties, but forms an uneasy alliance with Mifune.
Mifune wants Delon dead, but Bronson just wants him alive long enough to say where he’s hidden the money. Bronson and Mifune go to a bordello run by Capucine to get Ursula Andress, a hooker favored by Delon as a hostage.
Red Sun works nicely as a film because of the interesting if antagonistic chemistry between Bronson and Mifune. From an uneasy alliance they develop a genuine regard for each other. As for Delon he has a gentlemanly demeanor that’s a very thin veneer for one of the meanest mean streaks ever on the big screen.
Fans who are younger will recognize the plot of Red Sun being later used in a modern day feature Renegades with Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips as the uneasy allies with Rob Knepper as the gang leader with a mean streak.
I’m not really big on foreign made westerns, but I make an exception in the case of Red Sun.
Fascinating, little scene gem of 70s westerns
East meets West as Mifune and Bronson hunt for a golden sword and a stolen treasure, respectively. Some quite good action scenes, particularly the climax in the cane field on fire — some wonderful images. Andress has only 2 dimension to her character (as written, not her fault in particular), but at least one of them is her breasts. Has a bitter edge and somewhat ambiguous ending: Bronson ditches Andress but gives back the sword, saying: “I don’t have much else to do.”
If you’re a fan of westerns of the continental variety, watch it.
Excellent music by Maurice Jarre — anyone know where I can find a copy?
