CrowTurtle | 09/13/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

The first movie being ofcourse 'King Solomon's Mines' (released two years before this one in 1985 - also starring Richard Chamberlain, Sharon Stone).

'Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold' is rather flat compared to the first one. the problem is that the 'Lost City of Gold' is missing the all around sense of fun that was present before and is simply not as clever in its sense of humor (although in the first half it did have its moments).

The second half of this movie (when they actually get to the 'Lost City of Gold') is simply awful.

And there is a completely cheesy and unnecessary scene in which Allan Quatermain shoots and kills a lion. In the first movie the 'lion scene' is realistic but delightful.

So, if you liked this one (hey, its possible) or if you didn't, try 'King Solomon's Mines'!!

peace out


King Solomon's Mines was at least fun, but this?

"I actually enjoyed King Solomon's Mines. Sure it was bad, but the funny sense of humor was a treat and the action was non-stop. The sequel Allan Quartermain and the Lost City of Gold lacks all this. It tries to capture the same humor as the first film but fails. Also the action is rather dull and unspactacular. I believe part of the problem was the low budget. King Solomon's Mines had a way bigger budget so they could afford the fun action scenes. Here there's not much budget to go around so the action was cut short. Overall a dismal sequel that is totally pointless."
An unworthy follow-up to an entertaining movie
Darren Harrison | Washington D.C. | 07/30/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie really only suffers in comparison to its entertaining and fun-loving predecessor KING SOLOMON'S MINES. Filmed back-to-back to save money on what the now defunct Cannon Company obviously thought would be a highly successful franchise. Whereas the first film features an incredible cast including the always amazing John Rhys-Davies and Herbert Lom and a fun, fast paced and amusing series of adventures, this follow-up can only offer us James Earl Jones as a major addition to series regulars Richard Chamberlain and Sharon Stone. In fact Jones steals every scene he appears in, wielding an axe with impressive power.
In this adventure, Allan Quaterman (Chamberlain) sets out across the jungle, with fiancee Jessie (Stone) in tow, in search of his lost brother who apparently has been successful in his search for the Lost City of Gold of the title.
Where this movie fails is that, in contrast to the first movie, the action sequences are uninspired, the comedy is dull to downright annoying and when Chamberlain and Company reach the city it becomes apparent that the only people in danger (his brother is doing fine thank you very much) is Quatermain and company who are tried for killing a sacred lion outside the city gates.
There is some attempt at an action filled climax as they face off with the dastardly wicked High Priest and a band of mercenaries, but it comes too little and too late to save a movie which has already lost its audience during a tired journey to the city.
I really wanted to like this movie. I saw and enjoyed 1985s KING SOLOMONS MINES in the movie theater and for years was curious as to what its sequel had to offer. The answer sadly is - not much. Given its low price completist's might like to pick it up as a companion piece to its superior prequel but for all others this is hard to recommend.
