Storyline

Just prior to World War I the hard drinking, sharpshooting, Irish American Colonel Flynn O'Flynn uses British aristocrat Sebastian Oldsmith to help poach ivory from German controlled territory in East Africa, putting them at odds with Herman Fleischer, the local German Provincial Commander. When Sebastian is infected with malaria, he is nursed back to health by Flynn's daughter Rosa, they fall in love and marry. Not long afterwards, Britain declares war on Germany and they are drawn into the conflict, ultimately making a daring attack on the German armored cruiser S.M.S. Blücher as it undergoes repairs in a local estuary. Written by Chris Frost <icarus2oo2@msn.com>

Cheerfully corny revenge drama and vengeance fantasy
26 November 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

This is an opulent epic action adventure set in German East Africa at the beginning of the First World War. The full theatrical release is the version of the film which garners more credit for it gives the two leads more distinctive qualities but it suffers from a bit too much plot. "Shout at the Devil", adapted from a Wilbur Smith novel, harks back to an older generation of films with exploitative, larger than life characters put through a cavalcade of action and unlikely situations, out of which humour and thrills naturally arise, with a cartoonish villain to satisfy all tastes. Lee Marvin plays a man on the make, out to plunder the environment - including ivory poaching - for a quick buck, and downing copious amounts of hooch in the process. It's the kind of character he honed in "Paint Your Wagon" and he brings the same verve and inebriation to Flynn O'Flynn - a man who stumbles and fights quite a bit, this time with Roger Moore, who plays Sebastian Oldsmith, an establishment English gentleman. The film has some historical accuracies but is based on a true story about a raid on the SMS Konigsberg by an ivory hunter. Peter R. Hunt stages things with workmanlike efficiency and the performances are winning. The film, though overlong, is a treat for a Sunday afternoon.
