A certain African nation is not selling its oil to a certain oil company (headed by Olivier Mathot) for the desired price, so that certain oil company is sending down top mercenary Richard Benson (Richard Harrison) to lead a team of mercenaries (Gordon Mitchell, Gino Turini, Jean-Marie Lemaire, Michel Charrel) plus Lorna (Florence Cayrol) - a woman (obviously) whose main function seems to be to get naked a lot - down to blow up the country's biggest oil refinery.

Soon enough, our group of heroes runs into trouble, first with the local military (which they kill in cold blood), then with a bunch of bedouines who take them prisoner - all but Lorna, who becomes the bedouines' leader's sex toy for the night (which she doesn't seem top mind one bit). Somehow though our mercenaries free themselves and Lorna kills her lover for the night, and they manage to make good their escape, but then one of them, Hansen (Jean-Marie Lemaire) has to visit a doctor because of an injury that seems to almost kill him in some scenes and not even bother him in others. But the Doctor's clinic has been taken over by local spies, who get all the information out of Hansen by drugging him. Good thing the Doctor himself (Antonio Basile) wasn't home and comes to Hansen's rescue just in time.

Finally, the mercenaries, Lorna, and the Doctor (why the Doctor ?) have reached the refinery and place their explosives, but of course, they have ultimately to shoot their way out of the refinery, and everybody dies but Benson, who in the end blows up the refinery.

Back in Paris, Benson pays a visit to the oil company to collect his reward. But the big bad boss of the company has already arranged fo0r Benson's demise ...


Let me get one thing straight up front: As an action film, Black Gold Dossier is a massive failure: The action scenes are really bottom of the barrel, there are no special action setpieces to speak of, the number of participants in the shoot-outs is very limited, and much of the more elaborate special effects scenes (like the blowing up of the refinery) is quite obviously (unimpressively shot) stock footage, most probably snatched from some newsreel.

Having gotten all that off my chest, Black Gold Dossier is a pure treasure trove for bad movie lovers like myself: Our gang of mercenaries all behave like a group of carefree tourists on a safari throughout the film, the dialogue is so incredibly bad it's a pure laugh riot, the excuses to get Florence Cayrol out of her cloths are pure fun (best scene: our heroes want to check if there are soldiers patrolling the beach, so they send off Cayrol wearing nothing but panties to find out), and the actors seem to care so little to put in an at least halfway decent and convincing job it's nothing short of hilarious. Add to this the endearingly clumsy action scenes and, well, the naked body of Florence Cayrol (she is quite hot, actually) and you've got one perfect party movie.

Recommended, if for all the wrong reasons.
