A decent but hardly great adventure escapist film, that's played for broad comedy.

It's a mystery why John Hustorn's exciting version of Kipling's classic adventure, terrifically acted by Sean Connery and Michael Caine, was such a commercial flop.

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.

They don't make adventure movies like this anymore. Connery and Caine have rarely been better.
| Original Score: 5/5
