“All the stars were miscast and all give terrible performances.”
Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz
An inane low-budget film based on the novel “Allan Quartermain” by H. Rider Haggard. It’s directed by Alvin Rakoff (“Number 10″/”Death Ship”/”Paradise Postponed”) and is written by Allan Prior and Colin Turner. Worth seeing only for the photography. It was shot mostly on location in Africa. All the stars were miscast and all give terrible performances.
