Roger Moore and Ray Milland star in this 1970s action drama. Rod Slater (Moore) becomes involved in a web of intrigue following a rock fall at a South African gold mine owned by Harry Hirschfeld (Milland), in which general manager and veteran miner Frank Lemmer (Norman Coombes) is killed. Hirschfield's managing director, Manfred Steyner (Bradford Dillman), is plotting with financier Farrell (John Gielgud) to flood the Big Dyke, thus destroying the mine and raising the value of gold worldwide, and tricks Slater into excavating the seam of gold beyond the river. Meanwhile, Slater becomes passionately involved with Steyner's wife (Susannah York), unaware that the scheme hatched by her husband will result in his death.

Finally available in its original widescreen ratio on an English-friendly DVD in Germany and in a UK release from SlamDunk Media after years of terrible fullframe releases from Public Domain labels, there are no extras apart from a poorly reproduced stills gallery. Odeon's 2013 Blu-ray release also offers the film in its original 2.35:1 ratio in a good but not outstanding transfer, faring better on the extras front - the original theatrical trailer and a 45-minute mid-80s US documentary on Roger Moore.
It's great entertainment with Moore at his heroic best, aided by Susannah York as the love interest, and quality old school acting from John Gielgud and Ray Milland.
Peter Hunt directs some excellent underground action sequences, but that's hardly surprising....he had previously edited the early James Bond movies, and directed the vastly underrated "On Her Majesty's Secret Service."
The music, from veteren Elmer Bernstein is suitably rousing, and the plot (from Wilbur Smith's novel "Gold Mine") keeps yor interest throughout.
The disc: Sadly everything has been spared in this very basic DVD. The picture quality looks as if it has been transfered direct from video, and the widescreen impact is totally lost in a 4:3 presentation. Extras ? None in sight! The film is the full, uncut version, so that is something to be grateful for at least.
This great adventure movie has been long overdue for DVD (or even video) release....such a shame it hasn't been treated with the respect it deserves.
gold mine flooded to inflate the gold prices world wide, making a financial
killing, to ensure success they have the mines chairman's son-in-law 'Manfred
Steyner' in their pocket.
When the mines general manager dies by accident whilst working in the mine,
'Manfred' has lost his on-site puppet.
'Manfred' manages to persuade father-in-law 'Hurry Hirschfeld' to appoint
'Rod Slater' a young contender for the post,'Manfred' believes the cavalier
attitude of the new appointment will be the ideal candidate to attribute
blame to when the plan to 'blast' and flood the mine succeeds.
The film builds up toward a tense and gripping conclusion.
The picture quality on 'blu-ray' is superior to the DVD version, the sound
has been enhanced to a satisfactory level.
The story is of corruption and greed with a total disregard for the lives
that would be lost if the plan succeeds.
Enjoyable, well worth a spin.
There is little in the way of additional features.....just a 'Roger Moore'
documentary and trailers.
The film is now in its original 2.35:1 ratio, anamorphically enhanced and with a pretty decent transfer. It has 20 chapter stops, but no extras other than a rather pointless ten picture "image gallery".
Elmer Bernstein's score is particularly note-worthy and would well deserve a CD release.
After years of inferior pan and scan public domain prints, it's a treat to have the film in its original wide screen 2.35 aspect ratio. Thank you, Slam Dunk Media!

Good, solid thriller from Bond alumni Peter Hunt. The plot is reminiscent of Goldfinger but is executed with some panache so that the film has its own identity. Read morePublished 2 months ago by WS
