Fast-paced adventure...
15 June 2011 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"El Dorado: Temple of the Sun" is an adventure movie in the likes of "Indiana Jones", "The Jewel of the Nile" and "The Librarian". Set in South America, the movie kicks off in high speed and never really slows down.

The story is pretty much similar to what you would find in the afore mentioned movies. A treasure/relic hunter is looking for an ancient artifact (or in this case, the City of Gold), and being chased in hot pursuit by someone wanting the very same thing. So it is pretty much textbook script here. But despite it being an "Indiana Jones" clone, the story did work out well enough. Only one thing did puzzle me; who was the 'bad guy' working for? And truth be told, at the end when you find out, I was shaking my head in disbelief, because that was a bit ridiculous. But you will see for yourself...

Being set and filmed in South America was great, because it was like you were there yourself, running around in the jungle looking for treasure. And the sets throughout the movie were nice as well.

One thing always amuse me, and that is how poorly bad guys are at shooting when trying to hit the main characters of the movie. It is so wrong. When they shoot at other non-important people, such as the native people, they have perfect aim, but once the guns turn towards the heroes, the aim becomes way off. That is so old and so cliché that it just doesn't work anymore.

The cast in "El Dorado: Temple of the Sun" was pretty good, and most memorable were Shane West (playing Jack Wilder), Luke Goss (playing Col. Sam Grissom) and Natalie Martinez (playing Maria Martinez).

If you like adventure movies, then "El Dorado: Temple of the Sun" is definitely worth checking out, because it is action and adventure from the very start and till the very end.
