A British action adventure centered on a group of aging mercenaries: Richard Burton, Roger Moore, Richard Harris, Jack Watson and Hardy Krüger, The Wild Geese feels like a vintage version of The Expendables. Colonel Faulkner (Burton) is set with the risky assignment for his group to rescue a leader of a central African colony; Faulkner accepts, but it's not as easy as it seems. The leader is set to be executed and is being held in an isolated prison surrounded by a unit of the best African troops, the Simbas. With the help of old buddies that he's worked with before on previous assignments such as Shawn Flynn (Moore), a British pilot turned smuggler on the run from the mafia, Pieter Coetzee (Krüger), a former special ops man who only wishes to retire to the quiet life, Rafer Janders (Harris), a tactical genius motivated by his respect for the imprisoned leader, and Retired R.S.M Sandy Young (Watson) who is set with the task of retraining the mercenaries for the job. Enduring hardships, tactical difficulties and their own differences can this rag tag aging crew complete their mission and make it home in one piece?
