Storyline

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>

One redeeming quality
30 November 2006 | by jf-lagardereSee all my reviews

The movie is weak, that's true and the plot far from being new.

It has one redeeming quality though: its main actress, Christin (Regula Grauwiller).

She is a gorgeous red and curly haired swiss girl whose good looks make worth the viewing. Mother Nature's daughter. And the good news is that the movie is essentially us following her. She runs a lot and she wears shorts so we get to see her legs a lot, at least in the first part while she's in Venezuela. In my opinion, the better part of the movie.

Dare I say, the original Indiana Jones movies, whose genre this one belongs to, aren't that better, both the intrigue and the acting. They have higher production values.

Hardy Martins is a decent third-grade Bruce Willis.

A final mention for the two hit men, Bull and Gonzo, whose acting efforts are liable to raise a smile.
