A too-broad comedy, mostly due to the poor performance of Michael Caine.

It's been a long time since there's been an escapist entertainment quite this unabashed and thrilling and fun.

They don't make adventure movies like this anymore. Connery and Caine have rarely been better.

John Huston has been wanting to make this movie for more than 20 years. It was worth the wait.

Connery and Caine (both excellent) become classic Huston overreachers, and echoes of The Treasure of the Sierra Madre and Moby Dick permeate the mythic yarn.

The film is supposed to be fun -- despite its ending -- and even that is an interesting departure from the über-serious tone of most epics of the time.

It's a tall tale, a legend, of steadfastness, courage, camaraderie, gallantry and greed, though not necessarily in that order.
