Trivia

Director Antonio Margheriti was famed for his usage of scale models and miniatures as special effects for his films. This movie features two car chase sequences (one set on an abandoned railway and the other set in the desert) that almost look like they were big-budgeted stunt set pieces, but were actually filmed with radio-controlled models racing on specifically built small-size dioramas.

Goofs

At the end of the movie when the tomb is collapsing and debris is falling you can clearly see a crew member push a column over as soon as David Warbeck runs past it. See more »

The boys are back
6 May 2002 | by CranstonmanSee all my reviews

The dream team of Antonio Margheriti, David Warbeck and John Steiner reunite for a thematic sequel to Hunters Of The Golden Cobra, and its a beauty, as good if not better than the earlier film. Warbeck is on top form and John Steiner is as magical as ever in a rip roaring adventure that will keep you hooked until the credits fade. Good guys, bad guys, fisticuffs, car chases and a lovely in joke about Roger Moore. This is a wonderful film.
