  McConoghey Dazzels Whilst Zahn Sizzles.....LOL

| | See all AddieMac's reviews (37)

I very very much enjoyed this film, and truly am/was surprised that it flopped, it put that down to the poor advertising pre release.

Someone else said it's like a modern day Indiana Jones, a far better movie than National Treasure, which is why i can't understand why no sequel. I read on IMDB that all leading cast signed up for trilogy?

McConoghey & Zahn are superb in this well wrote throughly enjoyable film. With strong performance from Penolope Cruz also.

At this price you certainly wont be disappointed, if i wasn't so lazy i'd read the rest of the adventures of dirk pitt by clive clussler.

Buy it, love it and hope for a sequel....

If you like these you'll love this.
Indiana Jones
National Treasure
Romance in the Stone
and even some Bond Movies...

  HIGHLY ENTERTAINING ADVENTURE MOVIE!!!

| | See all PATCHES1989's reviews (518)

Despite not being a fan of Matthew McConoughey i quite enjoyed it. Its an adventure film best described as a modern Indiana Jones as it is fun, humourous and action packed. McConoughry, Penelope Cruz and Steve Zahn have quite good chemistry together on screen. Better than others have stated, at least worth a watch if anything else. Enjoy

  Great film......what do the critics know anyway!

Sort of a 21st century Indiana Jones, if that doesn't give it too much of an OTT comparison. Its a light hearted enjoyable adventure romp with good chemistry between the 3 leading characters and some good one-liners. Cheap price - must see.

  Where is Bogey?

Yes you guessed it, wrong film. Watched it anyway and I thought it was OK. Treasure hunters looking for gold, the plot is not that believable but hey it's entertaining enough. For me Steve Zahn makes the difference between 1 and 3 stars.

  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).

This film is very good, it's really action packed. I haven't watched it in a long time but i remember it was action. If you get the chance of seeing this film watch it if you get the chance of buying it, buy it!!

  Very accurate translation of a Great Book

| | See all cutegamesforgirls's reviews (124)

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.

  desert storming fun

| | See all cantona08's reviews (15)

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

  dry as dust

| | See all frankpoole's reviews (433)

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.
