A good adventure flick
6 February 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Richard Talmedge plays Dick Nelson a sailor who was once shipwrecked on a uncharted island. While stranded he found an old vase which he brought back with him and sold at junk shop. A professor who finds the vase and knows what it is looks up Nelson and asks him to take him to the island. Thrills, chills and the right touch of comedy make this a breezy fast moving adventure. Where many cheap-o films of this time are hurt by lack of music this one moves so fast you don't notice it. The only real complaint is that the film ends much too quickly, surely they could have had a bit more happen once they reach the island, after all this film only runs 56 minutes.

Lots and lots of fun.
