1976 - SKY RIDERS, modest action thriller

On location filming, a decent director, spectacular Greek scenery and a hang glider assault on a Greek monastery add up to a fast moving action film.

The cast is not uninteresting, James Coburn, Robert Culp, Susannah York, Charles Aznavour, Harry Andrews and Kenneth Griffith which keeps you interested in the film until the big battle at the abandoned monastery which seems to be filled with a battalion of international terrorists.

The last 20 minutes of the film are really the best part with the spectacular hand glider sequences around the Greek mountains. 

91 minutes
