Globe trotting serial covers every type of genre except scifi and musical in a story thats easier to watch then explain
Long serial (its five and and a half hours all together) concerning secret papers and cursed coins telling a globe trotting tale that covers several continents. Forgive the lack of details concerning the plot, but this is a very dense serial with a great deal going on. How can you adequately explain a story that begins in the desert, shifts to the high seas, switches to the the west before coming back to the city? You really can't. The constant changing of genres keeps you on your toes since you never know what is coming next. You keep wondering where is it going to go, but in a good way. Slow, but not in a bad way, this film is an independent serial that over comes its limitations by the use of a compelling story and stock footage that makes this look as if its got a larger budget. Worth a look.
