The Amber Chamber is a very famous piece of art, a room furnished completely with millions of pieces of amber. It has been missing since world war II. Supposedly, the Nazis hid it somewhere. Christin has been searching for the chamber for a long time, but when she gets close to succeeding, her most important artifact, a key, is stolen by Oberst, a man whose history and intents are unclear. She finds help in Vincent, a stuntman who lives in the deep forest all alone since his big love was killed in an unlucky stunt shoot. From then on, the race for the key and thus for the Amber Chamber gets faster every minute. Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Goonies meets Indiana Jones - and the outcome is a waste of time.
30 April 2000 | by WhyzakSee all my reviews

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I thought: Wow, this could be an interesting film, sort of funny, sort of cool, sort of exciting. But when I watched the movie I was merely disappointed. Again, a German Production has overdone it with the action scenes, and in the end the whole thing is nothing more than a stunt movie.

I cannot comment on the actors, because I simply do not know if it was the script, the director or their acting which was laughable. Anyway, the story line is so obvious, that everybody who has seen a couple of these "Good guys try to get a treasure, and bad guys try to kill them and get it too"-movies can really write the script by himself. Thank God I saw the whole thing on TV. I could at least flee every now and then and watch something else...
