It's not exactly known what it can do, but if the Spear of Destiny is combined with the Eye of Horus, it's sure to spell doom to humankind. Problem is, Neo Nazi cult leader Martel (David Brown) has recently stolen the Spear of Destiny, so the British Secret Service hires top archeologist Allan Quatermain (David Hardware) to both retrieve the Spear and actually find the Eye of Horus, which has been hidden to science for thousands of years. With the help of secret service agent Darling (Eva Harding) and Brody (Ryan Flamson), a tourist who just happened to tag along, Quatermain actually finds the Eye in a pharaoh's tomb in Egypt - only to be tricked out of it by Martel and company, who take Darling prisoner and leave him and Brody to die in the tomb which they blow up. Of course, our heroes manage to free themselves and soon go after Martel's group, who hide in a secret Nazi bunker in Argentina. Thing is, their experiments focus around creating an army out of dead soldiers for the Fourth Reich - and is Quatermain as good a zombie hunter as he is an archeologist?

 

Just like Allan Quatermain was brought back to the big screen in a couple of movies starring Richard Chamberlain in the mid 1980s after the success of the first couple of Indiana Jones movies, Allan Quatermain and the Spear of Destiny was quite obviously made to cash in on Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. And since the Allan Quatermain of the books was a rather obvious inspiration for Indiana Jones, such a cash-in seems only fair. But while the Indiana Jones film came with a price tag of over $300 million, Allan Quatermain and the Spear of Destiny was made on a much lower budget - which of course shows. But that's not to say Allan Quatermain and the Spear of Destiny isn't a fun movie, despite its shortcomings it manages to spin a James Bond-ish spanning three continents, making up its lack of full-blown spectacle with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humour, intentionally silly dialogue and a slightly absurd yet very likeable storyline. And a directorial effort bent on making the most of what it's got and rather self-ironic, fun performances by all involved make this one heck of a fun ride for sure.
