Quotes

Dr. Henderson: Perhaps nothing more than a curiosity. Or you may find something beyond evaluation; the secret of who we are, how we got here, where we came from. Did we walk out of the Garden of Eden or did we crawl out of some primeval sea? Or have we always been fascinated by the stars, wondering about them, haunted by them because their light's along some half-remembered road we travelled once. Isn't that a search worth making?

Indians and astronauts
29 August 2016 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Well made tale mixing Native American superstition with outer space visitors. McHattie and Russell along with an Indian woman try to piece together the meaning of a strange medallion. The bad guys want to buy it from them and when that effort fails, they resort to more desperate measures. In places, especially with some of the Indian ceremonials, things drag. The climax however in the bottom of a deep canyon is worth waiting for. The film is different enough to warrant attention by both the action movie fans, as well as the sci-fi crowd. "Search for the Gods" is interesting viewing, especially for those curious to see the young actors at the beginning of their careers. - MERK
