Like a dream
13 December 2002 | by (new zealand) – See all my reviews

This is certainly one of the strangest movies I have ever seen in my life. I saw it like 2 years ago on a sunday afternoon. Why the station was playing an obscure South African Indian Jones ripoff is a mystery. Well, I'll just say everything I can remember about the film in the hopes that it may help some poor soul who vaguely remembers it.

1) - at the start it has some crude Aborigines running up a hill. They find a jewel. I assume it is the jewel of the gods. A crude pink laser shoots out of it. A simpleminded viewer is confused.

2) - a comic relief Arab walks through an Australian desert. He is attacked by a snake. The "tough" hero cuts its head off with a boomerang. The snake's head slides down a sand dune and past the Arab's hammin'-it-up face. The tough hero then, without explanation, says "Bloody Gibson Desert!"

3) - the hero and the Arab are on a plane. The plane shakes. The Arab asks, "What was that?" The hero replies, "Nothing mate, the engine just fell off," like it happens every day. The thing is, I'm not sure if this is an actual comedy.

4) - the hero and the Arab swim from Australia to Africa. I'm not joking. There's some lame joke about sharks. It's at this point I stopped watching. I wish I had continued. The folly of youth.

Anyway, that's all I have to comment on. In hindsight it was extremely funny, but any bogstandard South African adventure movie has to rate at most a 1.

Call me........ In His Blazer!
