Description
Sean Connery brings his commanding presence and rugged heroism to the lead role of desert chieftain Raisuli in this rousing historical epic filled with eye-dazzling vistas and sweeping battle scenes.

In 1904 Morocco, European powers desire a foothold in the Arab world - and Raisuli is determined to stir up tribal fury against them. So he kidnaps an American widow (Candice Bergen) and her children, igniting a chain of events that include President Theodore Roosevelt (Brian Keith) wielding the big stick of foreign policy and Raisuli matching wits and sharing mutual admiration with his lovely captive. John Milius scripts and directs, bending true-life fact to serve his storytelling craft, shaping history into spirited screen legend.

        Very physically exciting movie yet insightful as different personalities that come from different cultures come together and learn to co-exist. The viewer learns how people from other worlds are similar in their differences.

            Comments about this product:

            An entertaining and "high spirited" John Milius adaption of an actual historical event. OK, let's see if I've got this straight. Connery plays Raisuli the brigand "defender of the true faith" and last of the Barbary Pirates - His influential brother sits in the lap of luxury, while another relative, a nephew, sits on the throne of Morocco while entertaining several European countries' representatives who are corrupting the country. Connery attempts to embarass his own blood relatives to the point of inciting the native population into rebellion by kidnapping Candice Bergen and her children - the actual historical victim was a man - arousing then campaigning for re-election President Teddy Roosevelt to meddle in the situation and causing an international incident in 1904. The banter back and forth between Connery and Bergen, the dynamics of the US foreign policy, which might be perceived as similar to what is happening now in the world, and the finesse of the actors playing their parts are truly wonderful to behold. A fanciful tongue in cheek adventure. B+
