A potentially great film, with an obvious error in the film.
13 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

First let's look at the error. In the scene when Lady Anna and Allan Quatermain are leaving the bathroom, if you look at the wall behind them you will see a motion detector. Guess they forgot to cover that one up. It even blinks as they move through the hall way. The movie has a good story line. However, I do not think they had the budget to make it a really good movie. Some of the special effects are not smooth. The women in the tribe have very colorful neck dresses, wonder if they were made from Michaels or Wal-mart beads. When the villain and Quartermain have fight scenes, you can tell they were not well rehearsed. Also, I you look at the motor car that Sir Henry hides up after the train disappears going backwards on the rails, notice the front plate of the rail car. It is a Wickham Rail plate which is used in Australia. Wonder how Africa got one of those?
