This movie has a lot going for it: Troughton's performance, Harryhausen's effects (esp. the baboon), and several really good sequences. But the subpar acting, glacial pace, & ludicrous story make it very clear how rushed the production was.
not perfect, but the special effects are still exceptional. a part of my childhood.
2 stars for the always amazing effects by Harryhausen, but overall trite.
I wish I would have seen this and other Ray Harryhauen classics when I was growing up, it would have done wonders to my imagineation. Good flick!
