The Buddha-Head Diamond
16 December 2007 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In San Francisco, the sportsman Kay Hoog (Carl de Vogt) follows Lio Sha (Ressel Orla) in a subterranean Chinatown and discloses that her organization is seeking a Buddha-head diamond that will release Asia from tyranny. He is captured, but he escapes and chases The Spiders, embarking as a stowaway in the Storm Bird. The ship heads to London, with the criminals trying to find the diamond in the mansion of the millionaire Terry Landon (Rudolph Lettinger). They do not succeed and abduct Terry's daughter Ellen (Thea Zander) asking the diamond as ransom. However, Terry does not have the stone, and Kay Hoog discovers that it is in the Malvinas Island. He goes to the island, where he faces The Spiders.

The sequel of "Die Spinnen, 1, Teil - Der Goldene See" is also a flawed movie, with a messy and silly screenplay. The great merit of this film is the hero Kay Hoof, certainly the source of inspiration of Indiana Jones. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "As Aranhas Parte 2 – O Navio dos Diamantes" ("The Spiders Part 2 – The Ship of the Diamonds")
