Fun adventure watch.
29 August 2018 | by etusciukSee all my reviews

I love adventure novels, and am a huge fan of H. Rider Haggard, so when I saw the vhs copy of this film at a yardsale I just had to pick it up. Was it worth it? Yes, I will say it is. Do not listen to the haters, this film is not that bad. It still has its problems though. The production wasnt great so the sound gets kind of low and warbly during some segments. Also the effects are lackluster, but I can forgive that for this being a LOW-BUDGET film from the 1970'S, also for the fact that the director was a TV director, and this film was the only cinema released film he did along with one other film which I have not seen. So i can forgive that issue at least. But the film has some fast paced action scenes and actual tension placed neatly. If you are a fan of old style adventure films, and treasure hunts for that matter, this would be your kind of film. 6 out of 10.
