One of the worst movies I ever saw
26 February 2004 | by HenryettaSee all my reviews

First I want to point out that I'm a really big fan of David McCallum and I like Patrick MacNee very much. But why did those Sixties-TV-Series-Idols do this movie? Couldn't have been the money (obvious if you consider tricks and settings). I hardly find words to describe this mess of a film. Every "Godzilla"- or "Harryhausen"-movie looks more real than this. It's O.K. for a black & white movie from the 50s, but this one is from 77 (and in colour)!!! The story is always the same. Treasure-hunt, lost civilization, a lovely princess and the unavoidable catastrophe in the end (volcano in this case). If you like bad movies (I mean real bad) please watch it. Otherwise forget about it. It is so bad you can't even laugh about it. Now I know why it is hard to get. I wonder why this isn't made by Alan Smithee...
