Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This lavish Hammer Films production proves to be a dull remake. Rated: C Oct 23, 2011 Full Review Ken Hanke Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) About 50 percent campy fun -- with another 50 percent of rather dull adventure.

robert p What a stupid premise for a movie, I laughed at the stupidity all the way through the movie! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A classic adventure movie that thrives from its high class actors and feel. Though it can drag on at some points, I cannot help but be fascinated by the story and the interactions of the characters... let's call it a hidden gem! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member not as good as 1935 version but still a good watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review dave j Hammer production of Ursula Andress as the reincarnated Ayesha convincing Leo (John Richardson ) that if he want her that he would have to find the lost Pharaonic city of Kuma. And he does this with the help of archelologist friend lead by Maj. Horace Holly (Peter Cushing) and his sidekick Job ( Bernard Cribbins) for the purpose of gold and wealth. It is soon revealed later that she is in fact has been immortal and that Leo is the reincarnation of the lover she had been with many years ago. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A rather weak film which is worth a cult status. This tale could be told from nearly any viewpoint, and is relate-able to a child's intellect. The one character which I'd want to see more of is Ustane, played by Rosenda Monteros. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A middling production from Hammer, that whilst it has all the potential to be an epic adventure. Sadly it never really engages with its audience, today its a little slow and could have been so much more than what is presented. Sadly it wastes its topnotch cast, Andress, Cushing, Cribbins and Lee. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Read all reviews
