Beast, The


aka: the Beast Of War
USA 1988, 105 minutes
Dir. Kevin Reynolds
Rating: [M]
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama / War

Topics: Period 1980s, Stageplay.


Aroview: Laying aside the usual sympathies, this American war-drama pursues a tense running-battle between a Soviet tank-crew and Afghani guerillas during the 1980s conflict, and discovers various brute essentials of war. Filmed in Israel, this summons a convincingly alien atmosphere, with good, if standard, roles for George Dzundza, Jason Patric, Stephen Baldwin and Steven Bauer. Based on the stageplay “Nanawatu”
