Not as bad as its rating
27 May 2003 | by (Québec, Canada) – See all my reviews

"High Adventure" stars Vampires' Thomas Ian Griffith as gambler and adventurer Chris Quatermain. His last name may sound very familiar to Allan Quatermain. He's his grandson just like Griffith explains in the movie. "High Adventure" is suppose to be an action/adventure movie but lacks of originality because of a small budget. Griffith travels to Africa to recover Alexander the Great's treasure hidden somewhere in cave. His trusty assistant Johnny Ford (Harry Peacock) and his love interest (Anja Kling), have to join forces to find the treasure before ruthless gangster Lorenzo gets her hands on it. Bad action, quite long even though it only lasts 94 minutes and no cool scenes. The only good thing might be Thomas Ian Griffith's grade-B performance when he pulls off funny one liners like (a man just saved his life) "We owe him a beer !" and (a woman kisses him when he's got a fake mustache on) "You should try without the silly mustache." Overall, I think it's more of a lightweight comedy with a little bit of action from martial arts master Thomas Ian Griffith. I rate this movie 5/10.
