Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1986)
The Adventure of a lifetime continues...
- Still got that adventure vibe.
- Still got the same corny humor.
- James Earl Jones playing a tribal african Gimli.
- Axe of power!
- Weird mutant snake-worms (creature effects),
- Swarma does a good job of being unlikable (and has one facial expression that needs a meme).
- Wire-fu is weak (as in "I see the wire").
- Swarma is quite unlikeable.
- Effects wise not as good as the first (although the little puppet versions of themselves were just cute as a button).
- Some of the choreography from the end was pretty...not good.
Overall enjoyable, but certainly a classic example of Sequel-itis. The first is certainly what I would recommend for the series that I've seen thus far (not sure if there is anymore, although I'm sure I'll look into that). It still has corny humor (which I like), and it's nice to feel that it directly ties into it's predecessor (while still telling a tale of it's own and not requiring prior knowledge of the first), but overall the presentation level just feels a few levels below the Solomon's Mines.
