By far, the cast overshadows this routine action/adventure tale of a duo of soldiers of fortune seeking emeralds in Columbia. Kelly seems out of place as the young maiden running a coffee plantation, who eventually confronts Granger over labor and water rights. The location shots are of interest, and Granger and Douglas do the best they can with the script. Hackneyed ending provides no surprises.
