Sabu would have been perfect for the lead years ago
21 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Had Night Train To Kathmandu been made 40 years earlier this would have been a perfect film for Sabu. Sabu also would have had first billing in the credits as well instead of villain Pernell Roberts.

Part Sabu adventure, part Lost Horizon, part Brigadoon, Night Train To Kathmandu has American visiting professor Robert Stoeckle taking his family to Kathmandu, Nepal's capital to teach at their university, the family consists of wife Jan Pesano also a professor and children Milla Jovovich and Trevor Eyster. The family meets up with young Eddie Castrodad who kind of attaches himself to the family to get where he has to go.

Which is a mythical Brigadoon like city who we would say exists in another dimension. But every so often the ruler of the city has to venture forth into our world, but make sure to go back lest some dire consequences occur. What they are I won't tell, but even the scholars aren't quite sure. It's all part of Nepalese mythology. Pernell Roberts also a visiting professor publicly scoffs, but actually thinks it's real and he's determined to go there.

So is young Milla Jovovich who likes what she sees in the boy who looks like a beggar, but says he's a prince. This is a Sabu plot if I ever heard one.

But I'm not scoffing. Night Train To Kathmandu is a nice family style adventure. If your kids see this one, put a copy of Lost Horizon in their hands.

You may inspire folks to see if there is a Shangri-La.
