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 »
This is a wonderful film! Shot on location in Singapore, it is the story of a Malaysian rebel, Sandokan, who, with his group of fanatic renegades, tries to thwart an evil British general from forcing the good king Hassim to resign in favor of the Imperial crown. I enjoyed this film quite a bit. The cinematography is lush, and the sets lavish. In one of my favorite scenes, a gang of rebels is attacked by bloodthirsty natives! Another scene finds a captive about to be fed to a hungry alligator. If you enjoy high-end historical adventure romances, this should whet your palate.
