Beautiful !!
14 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.

One thing I'm curious is where they've filmed the final battle sequence. It looks awfully like the monastery that appeared in James Bond film For Your Eyes Only.

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