Treasure of the Four Crowns (1983)

How bad is it? Between the dull bits, it's ridiculous.
Should you see it? Yes, but only if you see it in 3-D.

This guy's face falls apart in pieces over several minutes.

In the early 1980's there was a brief resurgence of 3-D films (this one's the better polarized, not red/green) and this one went way over-the-top in throwing stuff at the screen; in fact, that's all there is to this film. I stopped counting after the 27th thing coming at me. There's four crowns with attached orbs that have power over things like famine and war - how is never explained - and ooh something coming at the screen! - um, and everyone's out to get - ooh, another thing shot at me! - um, there's some Indiana Jones sort of - dang! that's a lot of stuff coming at the screen! Yeah, the plot means nothing. There's a tacked-on cliffhanger ending setting up a sequel (never made) that makes no sense.
