Storyline

Thousands of years ago, the great Child King Tutankhamen ruled. Few know the details of his life no one knows the secrets of his death. But all is about to change. In 1922 Cairo, free-spirited archaeologist Danny Fremont is certain that if found, King Tut's Emerald Tablet would hold the ultimate power to control the world. But unfortunately, the only person who believes Fremont is his ruthless archaeologist nemesis Morgan Sinclair, a member of a secret society who wants the tablet to harness unspeakable evil on the world and will stop at nothing to get it and then extend their world domination. But with the help of a crackerjack team adventurers that includes the doubting egyptologist Dr. Azelia Barakat, Fremont ventures through the Valley of the Kings, toward Tut's tomb, near the portal to the underworld, and getting closer to the truth behind a mystery that will change the world forever or end it.

Trivia

Jonathan Hyde (Morgan Sinclair) later described the film as "an absolutely ghastly pile of tosh" and claimed that he only took the role because he had never been to India before. See more »

Goofs

The opening sequence clearly shows the pyramids at Giza, on the outskirts of Cairo. Tutankhamun's city of Akhetaten (now known as Tell el-Amarna) is 194 miles south of Cairo. See more »

Quotes

Danny Freemont: [about his firing] I know you're behind that, Sinclair.
Morgan Sinclair: 'Course, I'm behind every calamity that's ever happened to you. But to accuse me of stealing something about mystical-magical, now that *really* takes the biscuit.

A good way to kill time
19 February 2009 | by See all my reviews

Lets be honest, this is no master piece. But it is good mindless entertainment.

I think that all the people going on about the bad directing and less than believable storyline are really quite ignorant and foolish. This movie is clearly marketed towards male teens and people looking for a cheap fantasy story. If you are in to things like that (star trek, stargate, etc) then you will probably like this movie. If, however, you expect to see Oscar winning performances in this movie...well then you are also foolish and ignorant.

Realistically, the acting is not that bad. Several people pull off relatively impressive performances. The characters are likable for the most part, the plot is rather interesting, and all things considered the special effects are not that terrible.

Basically, after the first 10 to 20 minutes the movie is quite enjoyable. Once you get past the completely unbelievable storyline and accept the film for what it is you can get into it.

But unfortunately, if you are a snob who only watches movies of the highest caliber you will not be able to see this movie as a humorous satire like I did. Certainly it is not worth paying $7.50 for to see in the theater, but I think it was time well spent.
