The South African businessman David Swansey is delivering illegal German helicopters to Rhodesia. That makes the patriot Gideon Marunga an angry man.
GAME FOR VULTURES is a rather confused story about a freedom fighter/ terrorist , an illegal arms dealer and an illegal shipment of helicopters to Rhodesia , but the story strands never really gel. Instead of a coherent plot we get a battle scene followed by sentenious speeches followed by a scene that doesn`t add anything to the plot. Other irritations include Richard Harris and Richard Roundtree playing Rhodesians neither of whom make any attempt at a Rhodesian accent , a freedom fighter called " Sixpence " and the black Scottish guy from PORRIDGE playing a murderous thug<br/><br/>**** SPOILERS ****<br/><br/>The version I saw on BBC 1 tonight was slightly different from a version I saw several years ago. A scene in the opening battle scene featured a Rhodesian soldier getting crushed by a runaway landrover , and an entire subplot featuring Tony Osoba`s character is missing. This is where he murders his sister at the end and he in turn is killed by his brother in law with a pitchfork
This movie was damaged by post production editing. Despite that it remains a reasonable political thriller. 'Game for Vultures' is based on the novel of the same name. Written by Michael Hartmann, a Rhodesian/Zimbabwean lawyer, it is loosely based on real events.<br/><br/>The movie opens with a 'contact' between Guerillas, led by Gideon Marunga (Richard Roundtree) and a patrol of white Rhodesian reservists in the bush.

Crossing the road following the couple, Prescott is hit by a car. Suddenly a passer-by hands Swansey some files that 'he must have dropped'.
