Storyline

Dating back to the time of Jesus Christ, an ancient relic known as the Loculus has been fought over by the forces of light and darkness down the centuries. Created in 50 AD, the wood panels of the Loculus are emblazoned with two images: the Ankh symbol - a looped crucifix - and the Caduceus - a rod entwined with two serpents. On its perilous journey through history, the Loculus was further adorned with more arcane mystical imagery including pentagrams, hexagrams, a crucified serpent, the naked human form divine and a hermaphrodite. And many have tried to unlock the secret of the sacred artefact - a secret only a chosen few know contains profound and overwhelming ramifications for mankind. In 1299 a Jewish alchemist's attempts to unravel the enigma ended in disaster. And in 1710 Sir Isaac Newton, discoverer of the laws of gravity and a foremost member of the Masonic Order of the Knights Templar, also strove to answer the riddle. But with the art of science in its infancy, Newton ... Written by ALan Jay

A curates egg (that's gone off)
22 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think on the whole this pile of rubbish is worth watching just the once. The reason being that it has some scenes that definitely stick in the mind, for instance the crusdaders' defence of their tomb, the fate of a priest who gives just a bit too much away and a bit of torture near the end. These are great scenes individually well shot and conceived. The location selection is also first rate. Whoever was in charge of that did a stand out job. There are some wonderful looking real places in here. Sadly, the rest including much of the story, the acting and the continuity is I am afraid pure unadulterated drivel. Without giving too much away our heroes run around solving things in a "tadah!" way that have remained hidden for thousands of years. In the most laughable scene they pick up a relic that has been lost to humanity for two Lenna... er, hidden under a few inches of sand in a place visited so recently it has Acro bars holding the roof up.

Cue scene from my imagination rather than this risible film: Roof Support Workman#1: "Strewth it's hot down here Bob, I'm going to take a rest" *Puts hand back into small pile of sand as he reclines* "Hang on! There's something under here - Wow! It's Ariella ornate and interesting looking box, maybe we had better take it to a museum or something.

Workman#2: "Nah mate better put it back under that sand. Someone might need it to save the world one day. If we go moving it about now they'll be right up the creek" Workman#1: "Yeah, right you are Terry. I'll put it back just in case" *Puts box back in hiding place so film plot can find it later where it's been, almost in plain view for two thousand ruddy years!!* You'll see what I mean if you watch the film. THis and many other things are sheer nonsense.
