Storyline

Jack Hunter, an archaeologist, planned only to take a picture of a cuneiform tablet from once unsurpassed Mesopotmian metropolis Ugarit in present Syria, but is caught and has to steal it from a private museum in France. He refuses to join his mentor, professor Frederic 'Freddie' Shaffer, who believes the poem is a coded treasure map, on a relic hunt, until his friend is murdered to steal it. Obvious suspect is Syrian artifact trader Ali, so Jack flies to Damascas. There he must accept working with local, US-educated colleague Nadia and her driver Tariq. Their lives are threatened during the long relic quest, for one by common nemesis Albert Littman, but another secret lurks too. Written by Carlos Mills

Bloody awful
10 September 2009 | by philhaywardSee all my reviews

You could waste your time and watch this movie or you could imagine Indiana Jones with no charisma and bad acting and you will save yourself the pain. My children and I did endure to the end, but it became a "laugh at the TV show" towards the end. The plot could have been reasonable but doesn't make it. The acting is blockhead and stilted. The characters are stereotyped. Syria could not have endorsed this heap of bull, the characters shown from the incompetent police to the comic relief sidekick are all one dimensional, insulting and pathetic. The story line wanders and the bad guys are a bit too obvious. Any plot twists are telegraphed and do not work. I cannot warn people enough to stay away.
