Richard Chamberlain (Allan Quatermain), Sharon Stone (Jesse Huston), Herbert Lom (Col. Bockner), John Rhys-Davies (Dogati)

Popcorn and junk food adaptation of H. Rider Haggard's novel, which is much closer to a remake of Indiana Jones movies than to its source material.
An adventurer and his female sidekick hunt for fable treasure which is also desired by a cadre of infamous bad guys, most of which are bad racial stereotypes and the usual movie villain types.
The production values are of the cheapest kind, as usual for Cannon-produced films, who spent the entire decade of the 1980's releasing cack like this. The less said about the performances the better.
