Good fun but with dark undertones - how about a remake?
Caught this by accident on the TV and, despite having no previous knowledge of it and not being committed to watching it, I was drawn into it and found it very enjoyable. Patrick McGoohan is great as the lead as are the rest of the cast. The background of a game reserve is well presented and the story rattles along nicely and has enough twists to keep your interest. The film is also a treat for Land Rover lovers as they are featured extensively. This is one film that I think might warrant a remake as it has a lot of dark themes that it would be easier to explore today. We must be long overdue for a revival of jungle films that aren't self-consciously camp.
