Indiana Jones meets spaghetti western not great but not awful
I'm only reviewing this because so few people have. It's not worth seeking out but could help pass an empty 90 minutes without too much pain.
Laurene Landon is a big, strong, beautiful woman who started getting cast in Amazon roles following the success of 'All the Marbles', where she played a wrestler and mostly left the acting to Peter Falk. A good thing, that, because LL is not the greatest actress and no-one in this movie is much better. The story is derivative spaghetti-western, sort of merged with Flash-Gordon-style serial and Indiana-Jones-style temples, gold etc. Nothing original apart from the female tough-guy but nothing too stupid either.
Direction, script, etc are reasonably competent and the budget must have been fairly high given the scale, effects quality, etc. The cast seem to be enjoying themselves, it's actually funny for the viewer in places and some of the ideas, like the brushwood snakes, weren't bad at all. Why they didn't use some of that budget to hire real actors is anyone's guess.
LL delivers as usual with lots of enthusiasm, but if you want to watch her doing this kind of tough-girl stuff, Hundra is a better movie in most respects.
