Oh, dear God!
31 January 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Take a healthy dollop of Indiana Jones, a substantial amount of Aliens and Predators and some sprinkling of The Mummy - no, not any of the remakes! The original! I take it that John Rhys-Davies and Joss Ackland are short of cash in their dotage...

This pretends to be a mix of old time adventure and some meager sci-fi and it fails.

Acting is OK. There are no more damsels in distress than what is usual today - meaning none. Gender equality-wise, that's good! Women are quite capable by themselves and they really don't need men with hair on their chests to rescue them from anything.

There's no sex and no nudity - tends to get sort of awkward. Comforting! That means we're "down to some serious action". Ahem... Well...

The plot starts out OK, promising actually, but this production doesn't take off and doesn't deliver. It may be comforting to see old faces amongst all the new ones but wrinkles doesn't cut it.

There's neither hero nor heroine in this concoction.

The CGI is good, but with the software available today, who'd flunk it?

See it if you have to. But you don't, do you? No really!
