Adventure movie in exotic scenarios filled with action , emotion and spectacular battles
25 August 2015 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This Sandokan entry was decently directed by Luigi Capuano with an European cast and it contains rousing action , romantic adventure , mayhem and a fine cast doing a fine job . In the further story of ¨Sandokan the Great¨ , our hero saves the damsel in distress called Samoa (Franca Bettoia) and fights an evil ruler , Sir Charles Brooks (Mario Petri) . Filmed in Singapore ; it tells the tale of Sandokan who is a Malaysian prince who , with a group of renegades , goes up against an ominous governor called Lord Brook . ¨This Sandokan against Leopard of Sarawak" or ¨The vengeance of Sandokan¨ boasts a nice cast as Ray Danton , Franca Bettoia , Mario Petri , Guy Madison , Alberto Farnese . As Sandokan teams up with a bunch of colleagues to even the score with a nasty governor during the 1800 . When Sandokan learns he is the rightful heir to the throne of Malaysia, he immediately sets of to claim his land back . Exciting story of love and adventure , the complete romance and the exotic events about the famous hero Sandokan based on novels by Emilio Salgari . As Sandokan , lord of Malaysia , sets out in pursuit enemies and rescue his lover accompanied by his European friend Yañez (Guy Madison) and Tremal-Naïk (Alberto Farnese or Albert Farley) . Sandokan infiltrates into governor palace but he is betrayed and discovered . Along the way Sandokan takes on several dangers and finally a spectacular battle against Lord Brook and his hoodlums who are trying to carry out the princess execution .

This is an entertaining oriental movie , full of action, thrills , double-crosses and of course , a lot of duels and fights . Being a so-so European co-production among several countries such as Italy, France , and West Germany . It is a grade-B flick with noisy adventure , emotion , slavery , breathtaking ship attacks , guns provoking a lot of deaths , and many other things . Decent production by Ottavio Poggi with adequate Ray Danton as Sandokan , and Franca Bettoia as Princess . The flick packs enjoyable as well as exotic atmosphere , luxurious gowns , evocative sets , alright cinematography and powerful score . Lots of intrigue , treason , luxurious scenarios , twists and turns . Sympathetic performances by main star cast such as Ray Danton , Guy Madison who had a fruitful career as American as Italian , gorgeous Franca Bettoia and agreeable secondary cast ; as the marvelous main actors are completed by a stellar cast full of veteran Italian players as Alberto Farnese as Tremal-Naïk , Raf Baldassarre as Teotrokis , Nando Poggi , Mino Doro and special mention Mario Petri as Lord Brook . Splendid color from 16 mm , including appropriate cinematography by Bitto Albertini . Being shot on location in Singapore and other exotic places . Evocative score by Carlo Rustichelli , including classical music and some sounds in oriental style . This one was a popular film by that time , getting big success at European Box office . The motion picture was professionally directed by Luigi Capuano . He was a good craftsman who made all kind of genres , and especially adventure movie . Capuano directed Spaghetti Western such as "Il Magnifico Texano" , Peplum as ¨Revenge of Ursus¨ ,"Revenge of the Gladiators" , "Hercules and the Black Pirates" and of course Adventures such as "Zorro in the Court of Spain" , "Zorro, Rider of Vengeance" , ¨Zorro and three musketeers¨ ,"Tiger of the Seven Seas" , ¨leopard of Sarawak¨ , ¨Vengeance of Sandokan¨ , "Terror of the Red Mask" starred by Lex Barker and "The Lion of St. Mark" set in Venice and starred by Gordon Scott .
