All DVD/VHS releases and TV versions in Germany were cut for violence to secure a "Not under 12" rating. In 2004 the film was re-released on DVD by MGM for the first time in its uncut form. See more »
This is a fun flick, based on the original story by Rider Haggard but with lots of bits from other sources, along with some totally humorous and almost unbelievable "stuff". If you want a serious flick and are the type who takes notes during the show, go somewhere else. If you want some genuine old-fashioned, borderline ridiculous entertainment along with your big bowl of popcorn, this is definitely it. Sharron Stone's character is a trip. The bit with her taking over the position of pilot in a commandeered biplane, even though she has never even been in a plane let alone flown one, is absolutely a scream. "Vroom!" was her exact summation of the experience. As for the Germanic presence in the dark Continent, as insinuated in this version of "Solomon's Mines", this is historically correct for the time, though far from accurate in its presentation; but this is entertainment! This edition of "Solomon's Mines" is not intended to be an accurate re-run of earlier flicks. If you gotta have precision and accuracy, see the '40's version with Stu Grainger and Liz Kerr. If you want some good entertainment of the non-serious vein, this is a good one. I've worn out my VHS version and am beating the bush for a DVD replacement.
