This movie was so bad, it was ALMOST good in its badness, but not quite. It pulled only the very thinnest of plots from one of the best adventure novels ever written. In fact, if I hadn't read the novel or seen other movie adaptations of the story, I'd have been even more lost. I must admit, though, that the quality improved --somewhat-- toward the end. Sharon Stone's acting was just plain bad (she's gotten much better since this movie), but patient viewers are rewarded later in the movie by some nice views of her pretty legs as her costume gets mysteriously shorter and tighter as the story progresses. Richard Chamberlain seemed a bit like Pee-Wee Herman with a beard, wearing an Indiana Jones outfit. The rest of the characters are largely forgettable and unexplained, but John Rhys-Davies actually did a fine job. The musical score often seemed out of place, so much so that at times it was a distraction. See it if you must. There are worse ways one could spend two hours.
