In a parallel universe, Tom Selleck played Indiana Jones. In this one, he’s merely O’Malley, the washed-up pilot hired to find a socialite’s errant pa.
Brian G. Hutton’s movie is perhaps the most blatant post-Raiders adventure, half-inching its globetrotting narrative, hero’s dress sense and even the odd cast member. What it lacks is panache.
The sedate, Sunday afternoon quest gets bogged down in downtime with Brian Blessed’s warlord en route to its undernourished ending.
Selleck, meanwhile, isn’t so much dishevelled as disheartened by his consolation prize; offering little insight into how he might have fared as Indy.
