Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This action-packed adventure, starring Roger Moore and co-scripted by Wilbur Smith from his own blockbuster novel, Goldmine, was Britain's contribution to the 1970s rash of disaster movies. Shot in South Africa (to the fury of anti-apartheid groups and various trade unions), the film oversimplifies its themes of racism and exploitation, but it delivers the goods for most of its exhausting running time. Moore is as wooden as a pit prop as he seeks to prevent the sabotage that will send the price of gold soaring, but Bradford Dillman is a splendid villain and Susannah York invites sympathy as his duped wife.
