| Better then the usual slavery exploitation film
Period set tale of the slave trade in Africa and how the nominal hero, Ron Ely goes from supporting it to instead helping to end it. Good melodramatic story is full of all of the exploitation hallmarks you'd expect- nudity, violence, general bad behavior-, but done less garishly and over the top in films like Mandingo and The Drum or any of the other films from the 70's that exploited the slave trade in the name of teaching us all a lesson. There aren't many of these films and for the most part they are a poor lot with most of the films so bad that they are funny. This one however is better then the rest even if it does get a bit melodramatic. The best thing I can say is its a watchable potboiler.
