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 »
If you're looking for Steve Reeves to unveil that magnificent torso of his in this movie, then skip it. He's clad from head to toe throughout a decent adventure film that could have starred any number of action stars. Reeves trademark: his phenomenal body remains hidden throughout. Even in the scenes where other men are barechested, Reeves coyly keeps his shirt on. This is akin to movie producers putting Marilyn Monroe in potato sacks to prove her dramatic talents. I loved the earlier Reeves movies, especially his masterpiece, "Giant of Marathon" because it was like studying a marvel of nature: a phenomenal physique with charisma to spare. Perhaps Reeves thought it a good idea to downplay his body to show the world that he could act. In any case, this isn't a typical Reeves movie. In fact, it seems that the more movies he made over the years, the more he tried to hide his torso by cloaking it in capes and tunics and cloaks. So enjoy "Hercules," "Hercules Unbound" and "Giant of Marathon" while you can because his body-beautiful movies began wounding down soon after.
