Comments: A wealthy woman from London elicits the help of an ex-pat living in Africa. She wants him to make use of his tracking skills to find her husband, who has disappeared. He accepts, after being offered the right amount of money. Is the woman in for the worst "vacation", or will the hunter be unable to tolerate her slowing him down? Or will they find something else?
The personality of Allan, the main character, in this film has clearly influenced the famous Indiana Jones. If only the female lead was more attractive. She's not ugly, just so very plain! Otherwise, this is a fun adventure that moves along well. It's based on a novel.
