Gary Daniels on “Secret…” from his interview on the Nanarland website:

The second film I did was called The Secret of King Mahi's Island which was supposed to be an Indiana Jones style action/adventure film but it did not go so well. The original director quit after about 1 week and Jimmy took over but there were many problems and the film turned out terrible. It is not surprising and I am glad that it never received a wide distribution.
