Low adventure... actually
10 February 2013 | by swedzinSee all my reviews

And, we have it, right here… a low budget Indiana Jones rip-off. Mark Roper is a director of low budget action films, but all of a sudden he wanted to direct some adventure film that resembles Indiana Jones. And guess what? He didn't make it. The filming locations, the ambient of the movie, the atmosphere, the sense that something adventurous is going to happen… is weak. It's just a low budget action film, masked into a cliché adventure film, starring Thomas Ian Griffith, who starred in most low budget, action-martial arts films. Griffith, being a martial artist, good one to say, and also a good, classically trained actor, I watched this film because of him, he was OK, in whatever he do, he is good, he gives us a solid performances, but his looks and martial arts knowledge always leads him to C crap, action movies. Griffith plays Chris Quartermain, the grandson of the great fictional adventurer Allan Quartermain… how odd is that? Well, they needed some famous character to attract adventure movie fans. Weak script, weak story, nothing's that special, not even the comic element which is pretty much around. The other actors did as much as they could with their performances, but not good enough… that actress that played a leading villain Karol Lorenzo, man, she was irritating… bad acting, and no charisma at all. He also have Gotz Otto here, he is known from "Tomorrow Never Dies" and "Beowulf" (1999), and by his appearance here, I knew that him and Griffith would have a fight scene. They are both tall and lean and they seem evenly match. Predictable… So as the rest of the movie… avoid it… if you want to put yourself to sleep.
