In this sequel to "King Solomon's Mines," Allan Quatermain (Richard Chamberlain) and Jesse Huston (Sharon Stone) once again travel to Africa on a journey of uncharted pathways, in search of a lost brother and a Lost City of Gold!
It doesn't have the production value of Indiana Jones nor does it have the romantic buildup of Romancing the Stone. It doesn't even have the wit and lore of Firewalker. But it still has a decent trek into adventure. It's highly nostalgic for me but I think a newcomer can appreciate the journey of an unimaginable treasure in a mysterious land with a lost race. It may not be one of Sharon Stone's best films but it is surely one of Elvira's best.
Schlock knockoff of Indiana Jones movies done solely for profit. What can you say of a flick that doesn't even make Sharon Stone in her late twenties look good? At least Cassandra Peterson (before Elvira) doesn't utter a peep of dialogue while flaunting her navel. There is a special circle in the down-under for people like me who waste their precious time watching this kind of rubbish

Outdated racist depictions
Outdated racist depiction of African "savages" and an "Indian" mystic (white guy in brown make up with phony accent. Hero white man leading search for city ruled by Lost White Race. James Earl Jones worst role as a "African warrior" with a huge ax killing "natives". Just plain silly with too many racist overtones.

Action,adventure and comedy. Glad you finally brought this to Amazon
I couldn't get past ten minutes - the acting was that bad. I never have been a Chamberlain fan, even when he was a TV doctor, but I did like Ms. Stone's work. Here even she seems to have caught the bad acting bug.
