Movie Reviews

Excellent film--horrible dvd
Brian A. Bross | Billings, Montana | 03/13/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent film, well woth seeing. The dvd is probably the worst technically I have ever seen. Colors shift, focus drifts, I cannot understand how anyone could make such a miserable copy and then have the nerve to sell it without labeling it "SUBSTANDARD"."
Film is 5 stars, DVD is bah! "Gold" is a great flick
PatrickO | New York, NY United States | 10/01/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This mid-70's film is genuinely enjoyable and dramatic. The music is great (with a high-energy title song and 70's disaster flick chick Maureen McGovern doing a great love theme in the middle of the film). Roger Moore gives perhaps one of his two or three great non-Bond performances. But don't buy it until it's done right in widescreen with a solid remastering job. It's a real shame that wasn't done first time out. This is a genuinely good film with a small cult following."
Great movie...pity about the DVD
Darren Harrison | Washington D.C. | 04/18/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie made by former Bond director Peter (On Her Majesty's Secret Service) Hunt and starring then 007 Roger Moore has all the hallmarks of a great fun action thriller. Yet, the action doesn't seem to truly pick up until the latter part of the movie when things start to go terribly wrong in a South African gold mine.
The plot - for what it's worth - revolves around plans to increase the value of gold stocks by flooding a gold mine in Africa, and the machinations employed to keep the manager of the mine (played by Moore) suitably distracted and away from the location to allow the villains plot to succeed.
A great cast supports Moore in this piece including Susannah York and Sir John Gielgud and it moves at a fair pace. The troubling aspect about this movie (and the reason I give it only four stars) is the poor treatment that has been afforded the picture on the DVD - it really does deserve to be redone and remastered."
Another disappointing DVD transfer-RATS!!!

"I really enjoy this movie (it's one of my favorite Moore roles), but we're STILL waiting for a remastered, widescreen version of the complete movie without missing blips of dialogue (and this may never happen). This latest version is no better than some of the earlier VHS tapes/DVDs. Don't be fooled."
