While excavating near the Pyramids, Dr. Leonhardt finds a small box with a map to the treasures of the Pharaoh Ramessess II. On his way to deliver this to the local authorities, he is kidnapped by his nemesis Dr. Bent. Before Bent can retrieve the papyrus map, Karen, who is Leonhardt's student assistant, and John, Leonhardt's son take the map to look for Leonhardt. They soon find that Bent is in hot pursuit and they figure that the only way to save Leonhardt is to be the first to the treasure so that they could ransom the Doctor from Bent. But Bent has other plans for all three of them. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Interesting location shots
16 October 2008 | by whpeckSee all my reviews

This production, as with many having to do with ancient Egypt -tombs, treasure, etc.- relies heavily on authentic backgrounds and locations to bolster up weak plot, inept acting and lazy direction. It shares with "Death on the Nile" the technique of conflating locations. One minute the characters are at the pyramids at Giza and suddenly they are in Khan el Khali markets, half way across Cairo, or at Abu Simbel, Aswan, and Abu Simbel, all in the same sequence. It reminds me of one conversation in "Death on the Nile" where one character was in Luxor and the other in Aswan, a considerable distance away but cut so they spoke to each other. There is a light moment when Zaki Hawass, the noted Egyptian Egyptologist, then the director of the pyramids, plays himself. He is to be found often on the Discovery channel. I did enjoy seeing lots of familiar Egptian sights and sites, even if they were scrambled.
