This expedition should have remained lost.
17 August 2004 | by (Flushing, NY) – See all my reviews

Bruce Kellogg travels with his fiance Betty, her father, and Bruce's assistant Andy to unexplored Africa to search for the City of the Dead (apt reference to the movie). They arrive at the camp of Father Jim, who happens to be Betty's uncle and Dr. Hammond (aka Junga), who is working on a cure for a deadly jungle fever. Basically the "plot" has Bruce, Andy, and the guide Buckthorn going searching for the lost city, while Junga and Betty remain to save a village from the jungle fever and "get to know each other better". Blame for the dreck should be put on the shoulders of director Fraser, who turns this film (with a decent cast) into a home made 8mm movie version of a Ramar of the Jungle episode (apologies to Ramar), but also aided by an incompetent crew. Crabbe, Middleton, (how did these two get in here one year after Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe?), and Darcy all come off as listless and just waiting out the week this film must have been made in, but still better than the rest of the cast who can't deliver dialog or act, especially Barnett as the safari guide. Since its a poverty row jungle film, we have an overabundance of silent stock footage of native ceremonies and safaris. A black mark on everyone involved. Rating, 1.
