This film arrived in theaters in 1985, the year of the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of Allan Quatermain in the novel "King Solomon's Mines" in 1885. The sequel, Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1986), adapted the novel "Allan Quatermain" (1887). See more »

This movie is not as bad as "Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold". It has some content of sheer excitement and adventure in it. But for most people who had already watched "Raiders of the Lost Ark" have definitely harbored discriminatory feelings and complements for this action film.
As far as action, adventure and fantasy is concerned, it was a good raw effort by J. Lee Thompson who had earlier two great feathers to his cap namely, "The Guns of Navarone" and "MecKenna's Gold". However, the next sequel of this series i.e., "The Lost City of Gold" is indeed a hopeless effort to bewitch the audience who are used to viewing better films.
Nevertheless, KSM is an interesting and reasonably well directed piece of motion picture.
