a roger corman movie
3 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

Truth to tell, watched this one only because adam baldwin was in it. The low budget didnt impinge too much, and the production quality was acceptable. Maybe the real problem with it is that jules verne is just too victorian for present day viewing. Whatever, it fell way short of truely interesting. Acting was ok (mr. baldwin did a nice job though). Unfortunately, it seemed that many scenes went on longer than they should have, especially the horse in the river. When on one hand, Minha lords it over her fiance because of her experience with the dangers present, then it takes her FOREVER to put her horse down while it is suffering agonies, had me yelling at the tv in frustration. I ended up fast forwarding through the movie after Mr. Baldwin exited. Not a very good recommendation....
