A moderate story with lack of plot
18 September 2000 | by moviewiz-4See all my reviews

I've seen this movie on cable tv and thought it will be interesting as "Indiana Jones" series. I was wrong.

The story is fine at the beginning and when the final parts are about to come, it changes to a very dull plot with no direction. It seems that Patrick's performance is much more better than the rest because of his acting experience.

The leading girl is fine but i can see her looking at the camera instead of looking at the person she supposed to talk to.
