At one point the archaeology professor comments about him and his students being being in The Alabama Hills, Anybody who has ever lived in or passed though Alabama would never mistake it for Northern California where the movie was filmed. However there is an area in Inyo County California which is near the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains called The Alabama Hills, named after the CSS Alabama. See more »

Offensive to Everyone
9 February 2008 | by WiebkeSee all my reviews

I agree with all the comments posted so far: This movie was a waste of time and energy, for viewers as well as those who made it. Terrible CGI, awful script, stupid plot and hey, the setting is Alabama but it looks like California. But the worst thing has got to be the Native American angle on this, which pulls in every stereotype you can think of, from the chief surrounded by smoke, the angry warrior, people speaking without using contractions ("Do not do this thing!"), Native American pipes playing in thin air, etc. It just shows such a lack of respect and understanding that I was tearing out my hair. A Native American with any ounce of self-respect would have tossed their TV out the window at this trash. So in closing, I'd say this movie is pretty much an offense to everyone.
