The last third of this movie starts with a prison escape of the pirates. Sandokan installs a machine gun on a mining wagon and starts immediately with a permanent fire. You can see the smoking gun, but no movement of the ammunitions belt or the ejection of used cartridges. See more »
Steve Reeves stars for the second time as Sandokan a pirate who's proving ground is the South China seas.
A superb drama filled with action and adventure. The filming seems have taken place in Malaysia and the sceneries are beautiful. This movie about a 19th century adventurer is refreshing in its lack of high tech gadgets or CG based special effects. All the actors are beautiful, and they engage in some of the best action scenes made for movies.

Very good action adventure, that is a treat to watch.
