Quotes

Walter of Gurnie: [after the battle] I saw you at the beginning. You and your bowman against those fire tubes.
Tristram Griffin: They sounded like the anger of God! I think perhaps they were! They're killing every man, woman, and child in the district like harvesters through a field of grain! They pull their heads forward by the hair for the ax. Not one left alive! Like harvesters cutting wheat!

A rousing, old-time action adventure!
7 October 1999 | by (New Orleans, Louisiana) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies that makes you feel like a 12-year-old sneaking into the local movie palace on a Saturday afternoon.

If you like exotic locales, rousing action, a lot of humor and a bit of romance thrown in for good measure, you'll probably enjoy this film as much as I do.

Orson Welles ("Bayan of the Thousand Eyes") is the real star, though Jack Hawkins, as usual, is terrific. This movie is a delight, and it stands the test of time. Best of all, it leaves you with a contented smile on your face.

I rate it a solid 8.5 out of 10.
