Sequel to the equally abysmal 1985 version of King Solomon's Mines (also produced by Cannon, who churned out plenty of cheap action-adventure knockoffs throughout the 1980's).  Both films jettison the story of H. Rider Haggard's novels for the more vainglorious opportunity to try and emulate the adventure and characters found in the far more successful Indiana Jones movies. The plot here concerns an intrepid adventurer (Richard Chamberlain) and his shrieking banshee companion (Sharon Stone) journeying through Africa in search of a lost race and their fabled city of gold. 
It fails to deliver any thrills or real entertainment, which is barely a surprise considering it was produced by Cannon Films, whose output during the 1980's was rarely above average.
