Trivia

Gary Nelson recalled in the documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2014) that when he first screened the film for Menahem Golan, Golan was baffled by it. It turns out that he mistook it for another Cannon film, Invaders from Mars (1986). Golan never admitted his mistake. He later told Nelson that the film was unreleasable. Nelson replied that he walked down a hall decorated with posters for films that were, in his opinion, unreleasable. See more »

Goofs

As the Eshowe Warrior Chief spears Swarma, while he is passed out on the ground, the 'metal' tip of the spear bends as it hits him in the chest and then straightens out again as it falls to the side of his body. See more »

Awful, but can still be enjoyed.
21 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is in truth a terrible movie, there is hardly any credible acting, even with a average cast involved. The humor is even more awful, and the film is a carbon copy rip-off of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. But this movie can still be enjoyed by just about anyone, even with the whole family. When I watched this, when I was little, on tape, I really didn't care how bad it was, and I enjoyed it, I still do, but now only to a certain magnitude. This movie is for anyone who loves cheap film flam movies, like godzilla, or the famous cheap kung-fu ones made during the Bruce Lee era (not saying of course Bruce Lee movies are this bad). In truth, I saw this movie before the King Solomon's mine one that precedes it, and this makes THAT movie look like a actual wonder of a movie, and if you like one star movies, give this one chance, it really isn't avoidable in appearance only in content. My rating a VERY respectable 2 out of 10.
