Low budget international action film
8 February 2000 | by FrankiePaddoSee all my reviews

Another film from the low budget internationally funded exotic action school of the seventies. However it is a pleasant time filler, largely due to the stars and to Henry Levin's direction which keep things bouncing along. Rod Taylor and Stuart Whitman, two reliable stars who saw better times in the sixties, search for treasure in the Carribean and do he man things in a dependable and professional way. The ever beautiful Elke Sommer is background scenery as she was in many a continental film whilst Keenan Wynn plays the grizzled and gruff old veteran and Jeremy Kemp the bad guy asthey did in countless films. There is a lot of experience here, a director who had been directing since the 40s, actors who had been acting since the 50s or even longer. So what we have is a film that makes the most of it's opportunities, no classic, but fun on a cheesy level. The type of film waiting to be reinvented by Tarantino.
