In 2048, global warming caused the sea level to raise high above most cities. John Kubiak runs a salvage business with his adopted orphan sons, cocky Jack and erudite, cautious Thomas. Yet top priority, above profit, is a secret project for New Vatican cardinal Battaglia which even the boys only learn about when it kills John. It's retrieving the pharaonic scepter of Sobek, according to legend commanding the sea-level. The Kubiaks' ruthless rival in this relic hunt is against real estate super-tycoon Nicholas Filiminov, who also recruited Jack's ex, Giovanna Becker, by promising to finance her geological sea control research.

This movie was, unfortunately, just what I expected it to be. The script was something school-aged boys turn in as their English homework. As such, it was dull and not engaging. If all the supposedly intelligent dialog and extended verbal exposition was traded with b-grade schlock it would've been an improvement, entertainment-wise, that is.
Same goes for the acting. Returning to my previous comparison to memories from my days in the school world, the overtly theatrical acting usually witnessed in high school plays would've really brought up the now-sluggish speed of the movie.
I don't think I need to comment on the quality of the special effects and other things that come along with obvious budget constraints. To sum it up, if you have something else to do than watch this, go do it instead. But then again, the lack of cynicism apparent throughout DID make this a notch better viewing experience than your average Steven Seagal -film.
