Audience Reviews for Kings of the Sun


A unique movie in the fact that it is one of the few to recognise the various Native American people as individual nations. Of all the movies he starred in, Brynner is the best physical shape of his life. Sort of a lost gem in the Brynner collection, he works well with the character though the other actors suffer in their parts, clearly not being up to Brynner's level.
