slow and dull
1 June 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Slow, unremarkable story about a guy working for a big company looking for oil in the Lebanese desert stumbling upon uranium instead. There's lots of crosses and double crosses and the like but it's played more as soap opera then adventure as a couple of women are thrown into the mix. I watched this for a good half hour with out having any real idea what was going on and never really caring. It seemed to be lots of manly men talking to each other in the radio and ignoring instructions to hang it up and go back to Beirut. I didn't see the point. It picked up after that but the pacing was still such that I found myself nodding off. To be honest it was nice to see a very young, almost unrecognizable Omar Sharif in a supporting role, but the movie is a snoozer and its going into my case of DVDs I can fall asleep to.
