Thomas Doubting (Walters), a young man down on his luck, runs into good fortune when he is given a magic amulet which takes him on a journey to a distant island where all is not what it seems... strangest of all, the locals believe he is the lost legend of the Mumbo Jumbo, who will restore their own fortunes. This madcap comedy could change your life. It will certainly delight all fans of eccentric fantasy adventures in the tradition of Time Bandits and Life of Brian.

A great cast oi British character actors can be seen wondering why on earth they signed up to this sub-pantomime-level trash. Or maybe they're just thinking of the pay cheque.
This is silly piffle - even worse than bad children's TV - with a nonsensical plot, stagey dialogue (the script is terrible!), theatrical type action - and it all ends with a dance routine by children in costumes, who have never appeared before in the film! It's like the end of term show from a school for disturbed kids! Bad films always end with dance routines like that.
Utter utter rubbish! A lesson in how not to make a movie.
