He is prepared to do anything - including murder - to keep his gold for himself. Written by Jonathon Dabell <barnabyrudge@hotmail.com>

Presenting superb cinematography and an exciting story.
16 April 2000 | by (Pittsburgh, PA, USA) – See all my reviews

Though this review is written 18 years after the fact, this film remains among the top of my all time favorites. Introducing the great wilderness in the manner portrayed within the story was breath-taking and this introduction was significant in eventual Canadian and Alaskan adventures. When films can have such an impact on a person, they cannot help but remain close to the heart. The story was fun & exciting and very well played, yet, hats are off to the big screen impact this film portrayed of the Canadian Wilderness.
