Storyline

Gordon Creed travels to a remote site in the Chinese back country in order to obtain rights to a great oil reserve owned by wildcatter Jim Hallet, who is in danger of losing the rights to foreclosure. Creed's estranged wife is a missionary at the same locale, and she is in love with Hallet. When a bandit/warlord named General Wu Yen Fang takes over the village, Creed tries to play his own wife off the general in an attempt to cheat Hallet out of his oil and to escape the clutches of the warlord.

not bad
12 June 2002 | by (denver) – See all my reviews

This somewhat obscure film is helped by a quick running time and the presence of Karloff. On the downside it is overly talky and the few battle scenes it has are generic.

The script is decent though, and my interest in the film was undoubtedly bolstered a bit because I find contemporary Chinese history to be intriguing (not that this is a textbook reproduction of the period. :)

6/10. I wouldn't recommended it, but at the same time I feel it is above average with everything considered.
