North West Frontier Reviews
The always dependable Kenneth More stars this this Indian set action adventure shot in vibrant technicolor that really goes to prove that old films can be just as entertainingly watchable as any of the stuff we get these days. This can be easily compared to the brilliant Dark of the sun, although it is a little more family friendly, much more of a matinee Saturday afternoon crowd-pleaser than a hard-edged, hairy-backed armchair-gripper. Even though this is good popcorn fun, it still has a strong political theme running through involving the beginning of the end of British rule. The support cast is strong including Lauren Bacall and the always good Herbert Lom. So it's well made, entertaining, well cast, fun, and well worth a look. What more do you need?
