Storyline

Captain Kyle Cameron, a Canadian not overly impressed by discipline and diplomacy, dismisses both and loses half of his British Lancers in a battle to maintain their hold on India's Khyber Pass. Cameron incurs the wrath of his superiors---small wonder considering the KIA count---when he violates Afghan neutrality in pursuit of the guerrillas. But he has been duped. Seems that the evil Russians have been financing some guerrilla warfare in hopes of provoking a border incident and thusly justifying a move into neutral Afghanistan, the key to British-held India. Chief plotters are Captain Ahmed Shir, s "friendly" Afghan border guard and Prince Ishak Kahn, a sheik being held in protective custody by the British. Cameron, more than a little bit irked, gets himself thrown out of the regiment (on purpose for plot reasons), joins up with the plotters and wrecks them from within. He returns to full honors... and the hand of the Colonel's daughter, a little matter that was aided greatly when he... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

B Movie Propaganda Theme Dull
23 September 2014 | by JakealopeSee all my reviews

While making a movie that has the Soviets as the bad guys, this time subbing in Imperial Russians since it was set in the 1800s, is not bad in itself. The Communists were as awful as their worst critics said they were. But propaganda themed flicks tend to suck in general, even if the foe was a worthy one.

Robert Egan really irritated me. His permanent sneer was a real turn off. He played the typical brash American masquerading as the brash Canadian colonial officer in the stuffy British army. His foolish behavior was supposed to be endearing but it was so poorly done that it reminded me of the archetype 50s rebellious teenager more than an army officer.

The action scenes were simply cowboy and Indians subbed in with lancers and Afghan guerrillas exchanging lever action for bolt action rifles. The outdoor sets looked like the same ones they used in many westerns. It was a tired flick that lacked any charisma or hook. I saw it on Netflix and it took four sessions to get it all in.

It wasn't all terrible. It had a part where he got "disgraced" in order to go "rebel" and deceive the native officer he thought was a friend, Raymond Burr as an Indian Muslim and infiltrate their underground. The conclusion could be figured out from a scene in the middle where a "new" weapon was shown to the Brit officers.

It wasn't horrid but don't go out of your way to watch it
