Leaves a bad taste in the mouth
10 April 2018 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

So much of this film leaves a bad taste in the mouth.What was a very complex situation is treated rather like a western with the cavalry coming to the rescue in the nick of time.Then there is the great white hunter slaughtering everything in his path.The film was dated when it was made and feels more embarrassingly so nowMature gives his usual wooden performance and Culver is surprisingly bad.
