About a Sea Captain who finds a treasure map, & has to fight for it.
22 October 2010 | by strangetildeathSee all my reviews

The main reason I wanted to watch this, is because until recently, I had no idea Jack Pierce was an actor as well as a makeup artist. I could only find the fourth chapter in this serial, & i'm not sure if any others are known to still exist. If so, I can't find them. Everything is out of context, coming in half way into the story. It's alright, but confusing. Jack Pierce appeared to be one of the antagonists in this.(at least I believed it to be him) The actors do a pretty good job, but it's still sort of cheesy. It's a little racist, but i'm not surprised for 1927. Also, there's an ape named Kong in it, I thought that was kind of funny Overall, it was an amusing piece of the film. I enjoyed it, but would much rather see a story as a whole usually. There's nothing to spoil for the audience either, with such a short part of a ten part serial. I would recommend watching it as a time killer, but wouldn't consider it epic. Maybe if the rest of the film is found, I might be wrong. But it's amusing if nothing else.
