A sequel to the much loved 'Romancing the Stone', 'The Jewel of the Nile' is, at best, a passable sequel, that appeals in parts. One Expected More!
'The Jewel of the Nile' Synopsis: Joan Wilder & Jack Colton are off to a new adventure in a African desert, in an effort to find the precious "Jewel of the Nile.
'The Jewel of the Nile' begins tepidly & remains dull for its first 45-minutes, but gathers momentum rapidly in the final hour. This time the adventure isn't very adventurous, though. Reason? A half-baked Screenplay Written by Mark Rosenthal & Lawrence Konner. There some moments that inspire, but they aren't enough. Lewis Teague's Direction is a plus-point. Cinematography is excellent. Editing is well-done.
Performance-Wise: Michael Douglas & Kathleen Turner reprise their roles & they deliver superbly, yet again. Even their on-screen chemistry, is exciting. Danny DeVito is okay.
On the whole, 'The Jewel of the Nile' is a so-so fare.
