Director John Irvin's politically tinged 1980 action thriller The Dogs of War stars Christopher Walken in one of his earliest lead roles as a mercenary who has an attack of conscience when hired to overthrow an African dictator at the behest of a British corporation.

The Dogs of War will make its UK blu-ray debut on October 14th when Eureka Entertainment will release it as part of their Eureka Classics range. The disc will include both the American cut and the longer International cut. The first print run will be accompanied by a collector's booklet featuring Pauline Kael's review of the film.

Check out Eureka's new trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Jamie Shannon (Walken) is a cynical warrior-for-hire who only ever feels truly alive in the heat of battle, and now he’s about to take on the most challenging assignment of his career: to invade a corrupt African dictatorship and shift control to the “puppet” of a powerful British corporation. To prepare, Shannon masterfully trains and equips a squad of deadly mercenaries with the latest and most destructive tactics and military hardware. But as their explosive assault begins, Shannon finds himself embroiled in an internal conflict of his own. Will this be his greatest triumph, or has he sold his soul along with his battle expertise?
