That Rarity - A British Western set in South Africa!
26 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really loved this when it was shown and can hardly believe it's nearly ten years ago. I expected it to be released on video shortly after as Nick Berry was a huge star at the time but it never appeared and has never as far as I know been shown again on television in the UK. Great plot about a gang of Victorian criminals(the Black Velvet Band) who plan an audacious theft of the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London. However they are caught red-handed and transported to Australia for life. En route there ship stops in South Africa and they manage to escape from the ship and deep into the South African veldt pursued by a British officer and troops. My memory of the plot goes a bit awry here but they fall foul of a nasty local landowner and he either double-crosses them or has killed one of band and they seek revenge in a terrific shoot-out that would grace any great western. They then move on further into the veldt and decide to settle. Nick Berry was very good indeed and handled the action sequences well. All the other actors were good and the period setting was done very convincingly. Maybe it'll turn up one day on one of the satellite channels,if so don't miss it, if like me, you love westerns or western derivatives.
