Trivia

Christopher Lee's last line in the movie, "La commedia e finita," is the last line of Leoncavallo's tragic opera "I Pagliacci." It means "the comedy is over." See more »

Goofs

Pretty much any time Christopher Lee is driving in the car with his sidekick, the camera is visible in the reflection on the sidekicks helmet. This starts at the beginning of the race and continues throughout the movie. See more »

Quotes

Feodor: [sings] Baboons on the road, what kind of sign is this? Baboons on the road, is this the end of bliss? I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call: baboons on the road! I would rather see a rain of toads than hear that call, baboons on the road!
Count Borgia: Feodor, you know that I am fluent in twelve languages. Amongst all those noble and ancient tongues, there is but one solitary word that describes you with complete and total accuracy: putz.

Yet another rally movie
9 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So, it's a rally movie. From my own experience, the rally movie craze started with the real life rally Canonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash. Brock Yates, a Car and Driver writer created the race to protest the double nickle national speed law.

Inspired by this event there have been a number of movies. The main list is probably Canonball (76), Gumball Rally (76,) The Canonball Run (81).

Before those was another Carradine car movie, Deathrace 2000. Carradine was also in Canonball.

Which brings us to this 1981 "classic", Safari 3000.

This movie is not like those other movies in some ways. It focuses mostly on the Carradine/Channing team, and their nemesis, a count.

The movie is innovative in no obvious way. That's not a terrible strike against it, how many movies are? The movie is a comedy/adventure. So it should be funny. And it is, in spots. I laughed more at the clichéd lines than anything else, which is fine. I don't mind laughing AT a movie, as that's also legitimate entertainment.

Don't expect much for adventure. It's not like Indiana Jones or similar movies. You never feel like the protagonists are in any real danger. I hope that's intentional, or the movie makers are pretty bad at creating real tension.

This all sounds like I am down on this movie. In fact, I sat and watched most of it. That means I was entertained. I don't love Carradine but he has his moments. Channing is cute at times, and pretty likable. Reminds me a bit of Sally Field in Smokey in the bandit - a cute chick riding along in the car with a cute voice and a cute personality.

If you dig 80s cheese, rally movies and comedy-adventures with more silliness than substance, you might like this. And there's some nice scenery of African animals I thought was well done.
