The Film’s Reviews
Gary Douglas Thompson embodies the spirit of Roger Corman with Gun of the Black Sun. Tarantino reveres this kind of high energy film making but has completely lost the ability to deliver it on the kind of lower budgets Corman and Gary so obviously relish. Howard Martin.
‘Bikes, girls, and a gun with mystical powers – what’s not to like?’
Jeremy Pick, Harley-Davidson Europe.
“Darkly unpredictable with a cool edge, a must see for all bikers”
Scott Johnston Film and Fashion Critic.
Gary Douglas has shot a winner with the movie Gun Of The Black Sun
The €1 million 90-minute fantasy adventure, which he co-financed, co-wrote, co-produced and plays the lead character in, ticks several boxes.
The thriller centres on a ruthless megalomaniac’s ambition to use crime, violence, neo-Nazism, plus the abuse of music and digital technology to resurrect and rule an Aryan race. It has furious car chases and fast motorbikes – and a Luger pistol linked to the Third Reich. It’s plot conveys the menacing conspiracy that made The Da Vinci Code a box-office hit.
