A great movie but the more it goes on the more incredible it gets
2 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The longer this move goes on the more the loose ends that accumulate. Our hero's quest is reasonable. His grandmother wants him to find her father's grave before she dies. It would have helped if a relationship had been established between them that could serve as a basis for his adventure. As it is, it seems he's had little attachment to anyone and probably needs to fulfill her request of him in order to her need as well as his.

By the time the movie is over you are left wondering what the secret stones are, who the people are who were supposed to be following him, why he was able to escape every close call he had almost without a scratch, who exactly Theodore Weiss really was.

But let those all go and enjoy all the good looking people, the nice scenery, and the pretty music.
