Storyline

In Bucharest, Romania, the priceless breastplate of Attila, the Hun is robbed from the National Museum of Antiquities by a gang leaded by the despicable Marcus Cutter, and the curator Radu is killed by one of the thieves. Meanwhile, in New York City, the former assistant of Professor Radu, Dr. Samantha Gaines, is waiting for the valuable piece for an exhibition. The agent Jake Adams visits Samantha in the museum to tell about the heist and the death of her friend, and she tells about the legend that the breastplate would have the inscription of the location of the Sword of Mars, which is guarded by Cerberus and made Attila invincible. When Samantha's brother and addicted gambler Jack is kidnapped, she believes his debt of US$ 2,000.00 could be the reason, and travels to Romania invited by the evil kidnapper Kul Jae Sung, getting involved in a supernatural adventure with Jake.

utter rubbish
9 May 2006 | by greenflea2See all my reviews

This film is a poor mans cross between James Bond and King Kong. I'm do believe this movie could have a great action horror movie, if most of the movie was related to Cerberus its self, than bothering with crime lords, spies, CIA, etc. The first half of his movie was more of a b-grade spy movie, and the second half is horror.

It seems in these sort of movies that Romanians don't have much in a police force, why aren't the local police called out when people start to drop off?? Why do local Romanian townspeople must always take the law into their own hands to protect themselves, were they simple can called out the police or even the military if need be.

The movie is rather stupid and I'm seriously question, the mentally of the director, like this mother couldn't even film a kids birthday party with-out screwing it up.

A great idea, screw by a low budget and a dumb director.
