Trivia

Gary Nelson recalled in the documentary Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films (2014) that when he first screened the film for Menahem Golan, Golan was baffled by it. It turns out that he mistook it for another Cannon film, Invaders from Mars (1986). Golan never admitted his mistake. He later told Nelson that the film was unreleasable. Nelson replied that he walked down a hall decorated with posters for films that were, in his opinion, unreleasable. See more »

Best fantasy for kids, worse movie for adults...
20 February 2001 | by KlassikSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie when I was 10. It was the greatest movie that came on the basic channels since Indiana Jones would only play on cable and occasionally come on regular TV. It had exciting adventures and amazing concepts such as open floors, fast water tunnels, and a whole lot of gold. Watching it as an adult, you can say that it's a horrible movie. Everything looks beyond fake, and the acting is one of the worst. It's amazing how a movie that came out in 1987 can look more fake than one that came out in the 70's. Whatever the case may be, let your children or little siblings watch it, they'll like it.
