The writing is a bit amateurish. Several scenes were just hard to accept. The opening scene ends with Mira Sorvino (in heels and mini skirt) jousting in Central Park to stop a medieval knight turned thief. In another scene Sorvino's character goes from old church tunnel to popping out of a manhole cover in mid Manhattan. The romance was clumsy and the ending unsatisfyingly predictable and sappy. Sorvino's acting was fine given the poor script she was burdened with. She is very believable as a smart academician who knows more than most about ancient artifacts. But the romantic relationship was just awkward and uninspiring. It looked like it came from a script a 15 year old boy wrote.
