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.

To me this movie was a not that bad combination of Waterworld and Indiana Jones, but it was like a skeleton of a movie without the flesh that movies usually have or should have. My biggest disappointment was the choice of the actresses (and their characters). That was a huge no-no! One was all like "I'm a never-cast-me-again actress playing a useless woman who just happens to know a bit in machinery", and the other was like "I'm also a bad actress, but I'm happy I can play a girl with extremely masculine behavior". The men on the other hand were great in pulling off the poor plot of the movie. They were good enough for me to want to watch them till the end. Especially Ian Somerhalder (aka Jack) managed to make a different character out of what was written. Instead of the originally selfish, foolish, arrogant, careless and material boy who quickly turned into a caring, selfless and trustworthy hero, Ian Somerhalder made an adventurous, reality-facing and easy-going young man who evolves into a responsible, sarcastic and fun man. I knew Ian was not a bad actor, but he turned out to be so good that if not for him I would stop watching the movie right after I saw Bettina Zimmermann as Giovanna. In other words, this could have been a wonderful movie if the writers didn't do such a lousy job, if the cast (I mean females) was chosen more properly, and if it had more fun quotes. In overall, I would recommend watching it once: there are a couple of good special effects worth watching :)
