A real let down,
This review is from: Allan Quatermain And The Lost City Of Gold [DVD] (DVD)
I enjoyed King Solomon's Mines and was eagerly looking forward to the sequal Allan Quatermain And The Lost City Of Gold. What a let down this film was. Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone return and manage semi decent performances concidering what they have to work with.
The problems with this film are many - firstly the story is very dull with no real direction - it just goes from one set piece to another, the special effects are some of the worst I have ever seen (rubber snakes looking like a very cheap Doctor Who prop, the river rapid scene is awful with speeded up footage) and the characters are like something out of a bad comedy ie James Earl Jones wasted as a so called warrior and the villian of the film - a high priest who is having a very bad hair day.
The film is presented in 2.35 widescreen and the print quality is pritty good. The only extra is a trailer for the film. So all in all a very bad film - buy it at your peril.
