Did You Know?


King Twala's son, Scragga, a pivotal character in the novel, did not appear in this miniseries. See more »


Quartermain carries and uses a lever action rifle with a tubular magazine (underneath the barrel) throughout the movie but the ammo on his shoulder belt and the cartridge he holds up then drops on the ground for Macabe to find (when he says, "Come to papa") has a pointed bullet. Lever action rifles with a tubular magazine do not fire pointed bullets due to the danger of one bullet point hitting the primer in another in the magazine causing the gun to possibly explode if dropped or bumped. This is the reason such lever action rifles are limited to a select number of calibers that have rounded or flat tipped bullets. Quartermains cartridges look to be .30-'06 or .270 calibers and no lever action rifles with a tubular magazine are made that fire these. The only lever action chambered in these rounds is the Winchester 1895, which has a box magazine just like bolt action rifles. See more »

Thoroughly entertaining, beautifully filmed, not for purists
14 June 2004 | by cindyp2720See all my reviews

If you a purist, don't waste your time - otherwise, hold onto your hat and enjoy the adventure. I loved the Stewart Granger/Deborah Kerr version - I've seen it dozens of times, but this film is every bit as good, only different. I won't detail the differences because it would spoil the film. Also, it is a pleasure to see Alison Doody again (I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan), Patrick Swayze is good as Quatermain, and the supporting cast is superb. I find the quality of the supporting cast one of the trademarks of a Hallmark Production and this film was no exception. The cinematography is splendid and the score is perfect. If you are looking for entertainment, you won't be disappointed.
