Storyline

Young archaeologist Jack Hunter planned only to take a picture of a cuneiform tablet from once unsurpassed Mesopotmian metropolis Ugarit in present Syria, but is caught and has to steal it from a private museum in France. He refuses to join his mentor, professor Frederic 'Freddie' Shaffer, who believes the poem is a coded treasure map, on a relic hunt, until his friend is murdered to steal it. Obvious suspect is Syrian artifact trader Ali, so Jack flies to Damascas. There he must accept working with local, US-educated colleague Nadia and her driver Tariq. Their lives are threatened during the long relic quest, for one by common nemesis Albert Littman, but another secret lurks too. Written by KGF Vissers

Best of the worst

JACK HUNTER: THE LOST TREASURE OF UGARIT is the first of three made-for-TV Indiana Jones rip-offs featuring uniformly poor production values and some appallingly wooden acting. It's the best of the trilogy, as the two other films somehow manage to be even worse; at least this has a slightly more detailed plot going for it.

In essence, everyone's least favourite Indiana Jones impersonator travels to Syria in order to research an ancient cuneiform tablet. Whilst there, however, he becomes drawn into a murderous conspiracy featuring various competing factions and international villains. Life soon becomes a life or death struggle for survival.

Everything about THE LOST TREASURE OF UGARIT screams Indiana Jones on a budget. Ivan Sergei is a rubbish shoe-in for Harrison Ford, and the supporting cast are no better. The script offers unending cheesy dialogue, the direction is either choppy or uses embarrassing slow motion and over emphasis, and there are some terrible CGI effects of scorpions and glowing orbs to boot. In all it's a hopeless mess, one that deserves to be quickly forgotten.
