Movie Reviews

Serviceable but unexceptional stuff
Trevor Willsmer | London, England | 02/16/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Death Drums Along the River offered Nic Roeg his first story credit, although you won't find it on the curiously chopped up credits of this Harry Alan Towers update of Sanders of the River. About the only thing it shares with the Paul Robeson version is Sanders himself, played with a lightness of touch that you don't usually associate with Richard Todd. Despite a typically inept start, this is one of old HAT's better efforts, a serviceable programmer that passes the time without ever threatening to lodge in the memory, which by his standards is a masterpiece.

The Australian PAL DVD offers an unexceptional fullframe transfer cropped from the original 2.35:1 with no extras."
