High Road To China (1983)


 high road to china“The oxen are slow, but the earth is patient. ” – Xura

Number of Times Seen – At least 5 times (cable in the 80’s and 22 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – An heiress trting to find her missing father hires an experienced pilot to fly her to the Far East where he was last seen.

My Take on it – This was one of those movies that played over and over on HBO in the mid 80’s and I watched it numerous times apparently enjoying the experience.

Watching it again now….not so much.

This movie was really terrible. Even Tom Selleck couldn’t save it.

This feels like a poor ripoff of an Indiana Jones adventure and nowhere near as entertaining.

Ironic that Selleck took the role after he had to pass on the Indy role a few years earlier due to his Magnum commitment.

He did not choose…wisely… 😀

Bottom Line – Complete waste of time. Seems that they tried to copy the success of Indiana Jones unsuccessfully. Can’t believe I enjoyed this as a kid. Skip it!

Rating – Razzie Worthy
