The Plot:  Fortune hunter Allan Quatermain teams up with a resourceful woman to help her find her missing father lost in the wilds of 1900s Africa while being pursued by hostile tribes and a rival German explorer.

Comments:  This movie is so racist! One Arab guy gets called a “towel-head” by Chamberlain, and a “camel jockey” by Sharon Stone. It gets worse. Basically, a ripoff of the Indiana Jones films, mainly Temple of Doom. There was actually a sequel to this, and you know what? I’ll probably watch it.
