Samoa (Franca Bettoia) and Sandokan (Ray Danton) in SANDOKAN AGAINST THE LEOPARD OF SARAWAK

This is one of two Sandokan film Ray Danton did after Steve Reeves made two films as well before leaving the series. Ray is pretty good as Sandokan but not as commanding as Steve. Are these films still politically correct today? I enjoy watching them even while knowing that European actors playing South Asian or Asian people is not the thing to do but it doesn't bother me. They don't make fun of their culture. But I'm not sure if younger generations would accept it.
