Audience Reviews for King Solomon's Mines

  • Aug 12, 2018
    Filmed in glorious technicolor, a good portion of this 2nd go-round of the story (the first was 1937 from a 1885 story) is simply watching Deborah Kerr respond to "the wilds of Africa." You know, crocs and snakes, rhinos and hippos (scared), or gazelle and giraffes (amused). Stewart Granger mainly is slightly annoyed (just as Indiana Jones, following in these footsteps years later would be). The story isn't rousing, as adventure should be, but there are plenty of second unit, in-country shots to fill in. When they find the diamonds nobody even keeps any, or slip a couple into their pockets. And so the romance is all this movie is about, and that's ... meh.

    Enjoyable adventure film with alot of on location filming that looks great.I've seen the Richard Chamberlain version from the '80's, which was hokey and just a cheap version of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. I was expecting this film to be a bit of the same, but I was shocked that it is just a safari story. It has more emphasis on exploration,interaction with wild animals and tribes than adventure and booby traps. The Mines are shown in the last 15 minutes and there is hardly any attention given to their discovery, which does make for a odd ending. Granger is charming, tough, and really carries the movie that made him a star.

    It's no Scaramouche, but it will do if you're in need of a Stewart Granger fix.
