Trivia

To cut costs, the movie score was just a reuse of the material composed by Jerry Goldsmith for the first movie King Solomon's Mines (1985). Just half an hour of original music written by Michael Linn. See more »

Goofs

When Swarma passes out beside Agon he lands with his necklace clearly on his chest. When the Eshowe Warrior Chief stabs him with the spear his necklace is gone. See more »

Something You Have To Appreciate
3 February 2004 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

This is one of those movies where you really like it or hate it. On the general, most all people who like to get emotional towards movies and like direct realism will not like this movie. These people need to get unstuck from their non-creative lives and watch a few more B-Movies or just not watch or comment on them.

This is a classic mode of low budget film creation that truly shows excellent creativity with actors on the 'Dime Payroll'. First of all this is a action/fantasy film and you cannot think that it is in anyway close to realism. I'm sure tribal people watching this would wonder what country they were trying to imitate. People became too used to the major motion pictures of Indiana Jones, which was made as close to realism of the time as possible, and turned their heads away from these low budget films which they expected the same reality to show through. This, in its own, was practically a comedy, though dry and witless at times, and secondly an action movie. This film was made for exactly what it was, simple action. This what is often dubbed, "A Man's Movie".

The movie is about a brother who is trying to find out where his sibling is, or what may have been his demise, after receiving something that clues him into what the missing relative was looking for, "The legendary White Tribe of Africa that live in the Lost City of Gold". Once Arrived, a mad lord of the city is discovered with his servile evil queen.

This is an excellent movie and one that can be found on most shelves of cult classics. Great movie to have laughs and a small film party.
