This movie was an unexpected pleasure and really fun to watch!

Swayze does a great job as Quartermaine & Alison Doody is wonderful as the female lead. There are never annoying moments of disgusted "They'd never do that", or ridiculous temple-of-doom type comedy lines. The screenplay and plot were terrific, the adventure was compelling, and the entire movie was heartwarming. Villains were even well-wrought. Scenery was breathtaking.

Well done, highly recommended, and perfect for family viewing on a Sunday afternoon or early Saturday evening.

Clearly, King Solomon's Mines is made for television. That's its main weakness. The movie, probably a miniseries, is drawn out to fill nearly 3 hours. It's never boring but it lacks the cleverness and frequent action of a movie like Raiders of the Lost Ark, the gold standard for such adventure yarns. The characters and plot are interesting enough to keep you viewing. Some of the characters like the evil African king and his witch doctor are surprisingly very good, if only minor roles. Patrick Swayze puts in a credible performance as do most of the supporting cast. The cinematography is generally very well done and some of the scenery is eye popping. A little more budget and we might have actually gotten a decent tour of the mine filled with traps, treasure, twists, turns, and wonderous sights. Alas, that's not really the payoff here. It's about the characters on the journey, not the journey itself.

Format: DVD
This is a fair action/adventure movie, along the Indiana Jones lines - but Quartermain was there long before Indy. It's got something for just about everyone: fatherhood tested, family loyalty, evil pursuers, magical treasures, and a last-minute romantic interest. Swayze does a fair job in the title role. He seems to be maturing as an actor and does a good job here, but certainly won't be taking any new roles that require male beauty.

This appears to be a TV mini-series, with all the pieces strapped together into one feature film. That seems to explain a lot of the slightly discordant notes. There aren't many special effects here, but that works just fine. The pace and action are more subdued than you'd expect in a regular movie, but the it keeps plugging along at a fair pace. It even steps over the jumps between segments without stumbling, mostly. Swayze's "loyal father" role may not be true to a story written so long ago, but is almost a checkbox item for establishing a 21st century male character as a good guy. The romantic interest seems to pop abruptly out of nowhere, as if the scriptwriters got to the last segment and realized they'd forgotten something. Well, I've seen lots worse.

This is longish, almost three hours, but never seemed to drag. It's a bit tame by theatrical standards, but moves along well and won't offend those who prefer chaste flicks. Maybe you could do better than this one, but you could certainly do worse.

Format: DVD
Let me start off by saying that this is amother winner for Hallmark. I don't feel that this one got enough publicity, though, because it was overshadowed by "La Femme Musketeer" airing a week later.
Anytime you think of Patrick Swayze, you think of either "Ghost" ot "Dirty Dancing", but he does quite a good job in this film as Allan Quartermain. Allison Doody (Elizabeth Matiland) also did a great job, and it doesn't hurt that she's beautiful. My personal favortite is Keketso Semoko (Momma Tuussee). Any scene that she's in, she steals.
Hallmark used some beautiful scenery in this film; Going from the forest to the desert, it all looks wonderful. This is another Hallmark movie that you don't want to miss. It's always hard to follow the original film, but they somehow managed to pull it off.

I read with interest the opinion of some reviewers that this version of King Solomon's Mines varies greatly from the book. It does indeed! However, it is a pretty good remake of the other film attempts to retell the story. The Stewart Granger version of the 1950s was very dramatic, while Richard Chamberlain's later attempt was a purely fun romp. I think that this new version with Patrick Swayze is a fine cross between the two--enough Indiana Jones to induce smiles, and enough drama to keep the characters interesting. It's worth the view.

This movie is a made for tv show, but very well done in my opion.
This movie is kindda like a Indiana Jones movie.
Just about when you think the movie is over it take a left turn,
or you think they are going to die and they just slip away.
I have always been a fan of Patrick Swayzes ever since the "OUTSIDERS".
I have much respect for Patrick he's a man that plays in movies he wants to do, instead of doing movies just for the money.
In my opion thats a true actor.
I rate this DVD a 5 of 5 stars!!

I'm a huge fan of H. Rider Haggard's Quatermain adventures and I've read all of them from the time I was a boy. As a fan of Quatermain I'm very pleased with this version of the classic tale and Swayze is far better than I first anticipated. Well done! This is an excellent adventure worth adding to your DVD library.
