Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Jan 11, 2006
Rating: 3.5/4 -- A brief shot finds Rod Taylor at a river, on his knees, his eyes as wild as those of a creature slaking its thirst at a water hole. It's a brilliant evocation of the idea that man is the world's most scared yet dangerous and deadly animal. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Iron-fisted Rod Taylor actioner, also starring Jim Brown.

What makes Jack Cardiff's film even less appealing is its bloody-minded way with a violent scene... this sort of brutality to work in the cause of entertainment, is inexcusable. Full Review
