[quote=“scherpschutter, post:3, topic:2632”]Seems basically a German movie to me, a sort of Karl May movie minus Karl May, with Incas instead of Aztecs, and Guy instead of Lex.
I haven’t bothered, I’ve seen enough of these movies, and they all miss this charm of the Winnetou movies
Woudn’t surprise me if it were a patchwork movie, with some stock material thrown in, this could also explain why Madison comes and goes and has not enough screetime, like Ennioo says[/quote]
Yes, definitely Karl May Lite. The patchwork thing is a possibility but I suspect it’s just down to poor direction and editing. The army uniforms are the same throughout and they are very distinct so unlikely to be from different films but the comedy side plot doesn’t touch the main one at all really, unlike the Lord Castlepool stuff in the Winnetou films which, although a sideline, at least is interwoven with the main plot. These guys (a kind of nutty professor paleontologist and his helpers) never actually meet Madison except when he rescues them from the same bad guys he is fighting. Then they separate again. All seems a bit unnecessary.
