decent adventure story
10 December 2013 | by robertsonlhSee all my reviews

This is a low-budget film with mostly low budget actors. It is not Academy Award material. It is not intended to be and no one choosing to watch it would think otherwise. It is however, a decently done movie with a cohesive plot, decent writing and acting and an actual story behind it. It drags a little in some places, but is still a lot better than the norm for B-movies. Think Sci-Fi channel with titties in it.

The story is not unique, but it is one of the better done of this... genre. Expedition team treks off into the jungle to search for treasure. Bad guys come after them, some of them are killed. There's fighting and shooting and things blowing up, cute girls and an adventure story that makes sense (of a sort). Really, what more do you want?
