Great scenery, good story, good cast.
Rolling Thru The Zen Room
The plot is nothing like you have seen the likes of and a few twists will keep you guessing to the very end.

Really want to see this on DVD or Bluray!

I don't think the critics cared much for this film but I remember seeing it when I was younger and thought it was pretty intense. Charlton Heston does a great job with his role. Kim Basinger also does a good job in an early role for her. The story line is tense and leaves the viewer guessing up until the end. I was also very impressed with the locations and the sets used in the film. The scenery of the British Columbia location is impressive and the scenes in the mine set a great tone. All in all I really enjoyed this film and hope to see it re-released in the future.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time! In my opinion Mother Lode is as suspenseful as any Hitchcock film out there! The plot is good, the scenery is beautiful, and each actor turns in a superb, convincing performance. The movie made me think that I was actually watching a horrid slice of real life. I can't wait until it comes out on DVD!

Just thought I'd put in an updated request for the DVD. This way someone at the studio will notice this and tell their bosses to put this out. They are looking at these requests right?? Or, maybe they're all busy planning the next Gigli, Catwoman, or the like. As long as I'm here, might as well add that this is a great thriller, filmed in the incredible settings of Southeast Alaska, and, it has THE MAN himself starring. Nuff said.

Saw this movie with my wife years back on the screen. She has been trying to get a copy for years now. Charlton Heston is scary enough on his own, but down in the mine (I don't like mine shafts) he's even scarier. The mood and setting (BC rain forest) keeps you on edge even when nothing is happening. When something does, you jump a good foot. Also--being an aviation buff, I liked the decrepit Beaver. The crash scene is real; quite unintentional, the cameras kept rolling through it all.
Best line: 'Indians know about stuff like that'.

I first saw this movie in Paris and I can tell you the theater was packed. Even the French liked it! And it was shown with subtitles! This is one of the greatest adventure movies of all time. And yet there is no DVD and it is NEVER shown an TV. My tape of it was loaned to a friend and he never returned it. But I can still play those great flight scenes in my mind! Comes on guys...give us a DVD!!!!

I have to agree with every review I have read, this movie is probably one of Charlton Heston's best! I dont understand why this movie is not available on DVD either.

The first time I saw this film I was in suspense all through the film and have wanted to buy it on DVD ever since I bought a DVD player years ago. I will probably buy one of the used VHS formats, because my recording on VHS is so bad at this point and I am becoming desperate to find it in any format as well as others.

I am confused as to why many of the best films of the past are not offered on DVD or even VHS, and to be totally honest, this film was not made all that long ago compared to others. This makes no sense at all when you can buy much of the crap which is shown in theatres now. Which mostly are made for mindless dummies.

I am looking out for various titles such as this one including "All Mine to Give", "The Hounds of Notre Dame" and many many others of which are not available but should be. I hate to say it, but this movie will probably not be available to the general public till Mr. Heston dies, which is a shame.

This is a great movie with all the trimmings for "masterpiecedom", but why can't we have it on DVD? I've been waiting for years now to have this in our collection. Charleton Heston is his normal actor-of-perfection self with Kim Bassinger, and Nick Mancuso, and the best, most beautiful scenery on the face of the earth, in our own great state of Alaska,(ok...some of Canada too!). The story keeps you on the edge of your seat to find out who the bad guy is, while Nick Mancuso is trying out his gold mining skills after unsuccessfully trying his flying skills. Kim Bassinger is looking great with the long golden tresses,and adds the love interest. Five stars isn't enough...I say ten! DVD PLEASE!!!
