User Reviews

A reasonably accurate historical film..
3 January 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Frank Latimore is cast as Balboa, the heroic Spanish explorer who discovers the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, he must pacify the wrath of his enemies and battle his way through a forest inhabited by savage natives. This one features some really nice battles, stunning ocean photography, and tolerable reconstruction of historic events. The romance between the Balboa and the Indian queen is of course fake, but adds to the drama and spectacle of it all.
