The needle in a haystack plot seems to involve our protagonist rescuing his family from some South American drug cartel, or something. At one mission Carradine yells those immortal words: "get the hell out of here" through closed lips. The villain of the piece never utters a line of dialogue, preferring instead to stalk about in a cape, squinting cannily beneath beret and drooping mustache (with hawk perched on shoulder for added effect). Avoid at all costs, unless you play beating yourself repeatedly over the head with a flail.

Ashanti Reviews:

Michael Caine has everytime claimed that Ashanti was "the only movie (he) did purely for the money" as well as "the worst movie he ever starred in". Keep on, Michael, weren't you in The Swarm and Hurry Sundown? And weren't both of those movies a nice deal worse than Ashanti? Perhaps Caine remembers only too begrudgingly the physically punishing demands of filming an action movie in searing 130 degrees Fahrenheit temperatures (the director, Richard Fleischer, was hospitalised as a effect of sun-stroke during the shoot). What Ashanti now emerges as is not the career low-point of Michael Caine. Instead, it is a very average chase thriller with a talented cast, exotic locations, boring stretches and a highly formulaic storyline.Dr. David Linderby (Caine) is a W.H.O medic who is left devastated when his black wife Anansa (Beverly Johnson) goes missing during an aid trip to an African tribal village. Linderby gradually realises that his wife has been snatched by slave traders - led by Suleiman (Peter Ustinov) - and he sets off on a continent-wide pursuit which eventually leads to the Middle East.Along the way, large stars pop in for ineffective and superfluous guest roles. William Holden has a terrible cameo as a chopper pilot; Omar Sharif displays tiny of his customary charm or grace as a pampered Arab millionaire; Rex Harrison looks rightfully bored during his brief role as a useful contact who assists Caine in his quest. The movie is based on a best-seller entitled Ebano, by the little-known creator Alberto Vasquez-Figueroa, but the suspense that made the ebook so famous is largely absent in this adaptation. Ustinov is charismatic as the slaver (he seems in all his films to be incapable of giving terrible performances), and Caine generates believable anguish as the boy who thinks he'll never see his wife again. There are occasional flashes of action, but on the entire Ashanti is quite slow-moving. All in all, it is a resistible piece of action hokum - not by any stretch as terrible as Caine has frequently suggested, but not a very inspiring movie and certainly a let-down from all the talent involved.


Beverly Johnson and Michael Caine as an interracial marriage of doctors test to support some African children when the girl is abducted by a ruthless slave hunter (Peter Ustinov). Seeing that the local officials are not too willing to do anything about it, Caine decides to take the justice into his own hands and begins chasing Ustinov across the vast deserts of Maghreb.Despite all the warnings, not that terrible movie. The pace is somewhat slow, and the acting somewhat absent (though both Malik and Ustinov test to do their best), but generally, an acceptable filler on a rainy afternoon. The high points are the shots of North African desert and the Omar Shariff's short appearance.Beverly Johnson is cute chick, but she's seen only periodically (still she has one stage of full frontal nudity, although very brief). And the grimy topics definitely deserved a better treatment. All in all, not a definitely terrible movie; just nothing really memorable, exceptional and shining here. 5/10.


ASHANTI is a somewhat typical film from the late 70s/early 80s starring Michael Caine . It's certainly watchable in an undemanding method but no more than that but neither is it terrible enough to be virtually disowned by its star .The storyline itself is intriguing an Afro-American doctor working for the UN is kidnapped by slave traders and it's up to her English born husband to track down the kidnapped girl . I guess the film should have concerned itself more as to dispelling or building myths about the show day slave trade but it's not that kind of film and rightly concentrates on action and journey One can't support thinking that maybe Caine's dislike of the film is down to the fact that he's testing a character and as everyone knows heroes are by their very nature boring . Undoubtedly Malik played by Indian actor Kabir Bedi is the most interesting hero while Peter Ustinov as Sulimen gets by far the greatest lines and scenes like " A father , a father , a father " . Very frequently Caine gives the impression that as later as the film is complete and the cheque is in the bank he'll be firing his agent ASHANTI is a film that demands very tiny from and offers tiny to its audience except to sit back and be enthralled . Movie buffs might complain that this is a terrible film considering it was directed by the legendary Richard Fleischer , well maybe but I think the only thing the director can be criticised for is casting an obviously unwell William Holden in a needless cameo
