Entertaining adventure movie with natives , intrepid pirates , prisoners and colorful scenarios .Packing verwhelming battles and full of villainy , romance , swashbuckler and heroism . This thrilling picture turns out to be a be a mixture of Pirate movie and adventure , including blood-thirsty cannibals . Along the way we are treated to see swashbuckling , wall-to-wall action , sword-play ,treason , twists and turns .The film is a nice pirate-adventure movie , a passable , acceptable tale , being produced in enough budget . Amusing adventures with valiant pirates and spectacular scenarios on jungles and marshes with carnivorous plants . This classic story of romantic adventure come to life enriched by Eastmancolor cinematography in charge of Carlo Bellero , though a perfect remastering being necessary . This release has some nice and even quite exciting moments here and there , though isn't always interesting , sometimes is diverting and fresh and on a couple of sympathetic occasions is frankly delicious . The film bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Women of the Devil's land¨(1962) also directed by Domenico Paolella with similar cast , scenerios and shot at the same time . The picture is full of struggles , fencing , villainy , romance , ambushes , swashbuckler and heroism . As for the cast, as was also usual, at the top, we found an American actor decided to try his luck in European cinema . In this case the character brought to life , was rightly played by Richard Harrison. He is cool as the lieutenant/pirate hero who encounters dangerous situations while trying to revenge his beloved relatives . He was an actor who had his first major role in "Master of the world" by William Witney along with Vincent Price , then he changed in action roles , mainly series B westerns , get some success and ends up traveling in Europe in the sixties where he made many Peplum and Euro-westerns . Worthwhile watching for a demonstration of the confrontation between the Richard Harrison against the dangerous villain played by Roldano Lupi .Richard Harrison played in Hollywood some minor roles as ¨Kronos¨, and ¨South Pacific¨ . Then , Harrison jumped at the chance when offered the first character in 1961 ,¨The Invincible Gladiator¨ , which was filming in Europe . He wound up settling in Italy for the next two decades . To avoid being penned in too much as a muscle man , he sought characters in routine spaghetti westerns as ¨Texas the Red¨, ¨¨, ¨Reverendo Colt¨ , ¨One Hundred Thousand Dollars for Ringo¨, ¨Stagecoach of the Condemned¨ , ¨Gunfight at High Noon¨ ,¨Joe Dakota¨ , even the main role from ¨For a fistful of dollars¨ was offered to Richard Harrison , but he turned down and explaining : Maybe my greatest contribution to cinema was not doing Fistful of Dollars, and recommending Clint Eastwood for the part . The female role was performed by Michèle Mercier, unforgettable starring in the role of Angélique, "the Marquise of the Angels", was both a blessing and a curse. It catapulted her to almost instant stardom, rivalling Brigitte Bardot in her celebrity and popularity, but ruined her acting career. By the end of the 1960s, the names Angélique and Michèle Mercier were synonymous, and to escape type-casting, Mercier was compelled to leave France and try to re-start her career in United States, unfortunately without any success. Support cast is frankly good , thanks to the familiar secondary actors as Roldano Lupi and Walter Barnes . The rest of the cast , we find a negative character to which the director gives a special treatment : the nasty Paul Muller , a secondary actor who interpreted various roles for Jess Frank .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Domenico Paolella . He was a director and writer, known for filming all kind of genres such as Nunexploitation : ¨The nun and the devil¨, ¨Unholy Convent¨ , Peplum : ¨Maciste Nell'inferno Di Gengis Khan¨, ¨Il Gladiatore Che Sfidò L'Impero¨ , ¨Golia Conquista Di Bagdad¨ , ¨Ercole Contro Tiranni , ¨Maciste against Mongols¨, among others .
