Our Score
Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone head off into the crocodile- and snake-infested jungle in search of buried treasure and something of the flair of Steven Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark. Any similarity between their adventures and H Rider Haggard's source novel is probably accidental, but there's a quaint, old-fashioned charm to the enterprise that makes us overlook its faults. This was Sharon Stone's first starring role, and it's obvious she was going to go places. A sequel, Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold, followed in 1987.


A rugged soldier of fortune is hired to help a woman find her father, who is missing in the African wilderness. However, during his mission, he gets caught up in the search for a legendary treasure - and must fight for his life against cannibals, the German army and a long-standing foe. Action adventure based on H Rider Haggard's novel, with Richard Chamberlain, Sharon Stone, Herbert Lom and John Rhys-Davies.
