Better than average movie with lots of action and beautiful Phillipine locales.
Tom Martin from Lansing, Michigan
16 October 1999
This George Montgomery film is better than average. He plays a cynical
doctor who is being sent by the Spanish to a prison camp on the island of
Samar for his political beliefs. The compassionate commandant (played by
Gilbert Roland) has been waiting for a doctor. He is planning to lead the
residents of the camp to a new life in the interior. On the way they must
fight headhunters, mosquitoes, dense jungle and mud. Montgomery
goes, because he has no choice. By the time they arrive at their
destination, a lost city in the jungle, Montgomery has found a cause and
romance. The movie is predictable but pleasant to watch.
The cast led by Montgomery, Roland and Israeli actress Ziva Rodan do a good
job with what little they have to work with. The colorful locales, action
and Rodan's costumes more than make up for the pedestrian plot and script.
I would watch it again if I had the chance. Unfortunately, it is rarely
shown these days.
