While excavating near the Pyramids, Dr. Leonhardt finds a small box with a map to the treasures of the Pharaoh Ramessess II. On his way to deliver this to the local authorities, he is kidnapped by his nemesis Dr. Bent. Before Bent can retrieve the papyrus map, Karen, who is Leonhardt's student assistant, and John, Leonhardt's son take the map to look for Leonhardt. They soon find that Bent is in hot pursuit and they figure that the only way to save Leonhardt is to be the first to the treasure so that they could ransom the Doctor from Bent. But Bent has other plans for all three of them. Written by Tony Fontana <>

This little production wins where some bigger movies fails ! (DVD)
25 June 2010 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

This isn't my movie but the movies of the kid because it's one of his DVDS. It's a pity that the disc doesn't include subtitles because I din't get the dialogs. Nevertheless, we had great time with this Indiana Jones / Tomb raider for kids.

The young cast is sympathetic (the boy looks like a young John Cena) and Stacy Keach depicts with talent a sophisticated bad guy.

But the real asset of this movie is that it has been shot live in Egypt and Cairo. Thus, you got amazing shots of the pyramids and you can feel the pulse of this great city and its inhabitants. For 2 hours you are gone in a exotic country with an ancestral culture and that's just fine.

Not bad for a mere TV movie with no amazing stars from Hollywood!
