Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

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.
