A thrilling action adventure based on the novel by Clive Cussler!

Dirk (Matthew McConaughey) and Al (Steve Zahn) have been friends since kindergarten, having also gone through college and the Navy together. The two now work for a former admiral travelling around the world and salvaging treasures from the sea with the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA). In his spare time, Dirk is obsessed with the 150-year-old mystery of the Texas, an Ironclad battleship that reportedly disappeared from Richmond, Virginia during a Civil War battle and turned up in Africa. When a Confederate coin, allegedly one of only five minted, surfaces in Mali Dirk and Al plan to travel there from Lagos, Nigeria on the admiral's yacht to investigate.

Meanwhile, in Lagos, Dirk meets Eva (Penelope Cruz), a doctor for the World Health Organization (WHO) who believes that there is a plague building in Mali. Since the WHO is unable to find another way into the war-torn country, Dirk and Al give Eva and her colleague a lift up the river. Once in Mali, Dirk, Al, and Eva quickly find themselves embroiled in trouble as she pursues the source of the disease...

if like me you love clive cusslers novels then dont bother with this film if you are expecting a straight forward adaptation of one of his best books.as adventure films go its ok but thats about it.the books of clive cussler are always far more exciting when you read them and yet again this is another book to film that fails to cover all aspects of the book.if you are staying in one night read the book then rent the film.see which one is better.

 Walking the sahara desert would be much more entertaining

I read the novel to this film and the book was quite good, however when I watched the film I was very dissapointed. The standard of the acting is weak and the annoying catchphrase the sidekicks says "Hi, how are ya?" makes you cringe every single time he says it. The film isnt true to the book and misses out some key elements from the book and repalces it with pointless scenes that serve no purpose to the film (such as the boat montage scene).

 Very accurate translation of a Great Book

Top 100 Games Reviewer

Although I am against one word reviews, this film is just good. It handles modern issues with an appropriate action level to a good end. It did start out as a Good Book so if you like this, read the book because believe it or not, the book is even better! They've captured Dirk Pitt perfectly.

''Hi! How Are Ya?''. Sahara Is Is A Brilliant Movie, Definitely In My Top 10 Best Movies. I Don't Know Why People Think This Movie Is Bad, I Suppose They Don't Know What A Good Movie Is. The SoundTrack Is Fantastic All The Song Artists And The Music Is Great: Lynyrd Skynyrd, Faces, Grand Funk Railroad, Dr. John And The Original Score Music By Clint Mansell.It's Alll Good. If You Are A Fan Of Action/Inidiana Jones Movies You Will Love This.

surprisingly good action film and funny.mconaughey and zahn bounce of each other naturally to create a smooth flowing comedy element to a high octane adventure.cruz adds the eye candy and the support cast makes this a cracking film.sit back and cheer on the good guys
