Storyline

They say the great Hebrew ruler, King Solomon, fell in love with the Queen of Sheba when she traveled across countries to visit him. Alas, she had to return to her own kingdom so it was a love that could not exist. So in her honor, he has hidden a treasure - a treasure that was far beyond anybody's wildest dreams - somewhere in the mines he used to own in Africa. Quatermain's brother went missing after he tried to find this lost legendary treasure. He was last seen somewhere beyond the great desert of a then unexplored mysterious Africa. Quatermain and his friends meet in England and decide to go on a quest to find his missing brother. On the way they'll meet a strange man that may help them out, a lost tribe and a very wicked witch who wants to find the treasure too - at any cost. Written by LWC

Not bad but could have been better
30 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Mostly the Burbank Films Australia animations are entertaining. There are some misses, but apart from some major problems, King Solomon's Mines is not one of them. It does suffer from some crude character designs, some underdeveloped characters and relationships, some moments of rushed pacing and parts where the voice acting did seem rather raw. However, I did like the colourful backgrounds and the colours have vibrancy, while the music is rousing, the dialogue has some funny and intelligent moments and despite the short length this King Solomon's Mines is not just one of the more faithful adaptations of the story but on its own terms has its fair share of entertainment and thrills.

All in all, not one of Burbank Films Australia's best but not one of their worst either. It has problems but I also didn't think it was that bad. 6/10 Bethany Cox
