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

Jack Hunter series
21 April 2009 | by nona_lexxa15See all my reviews

I watched this series last night, and I was actually surprised to find an adventure series with a rather engaging plot.Even though it had some flaws here and there which are rather difficult to pass, the story-line was interesting. They had some problems with the special effects in some part of the movie but mostly it was enjoyable. I was expecting some " American treasure hunter movie" and I was right, it has many clichés. The actors acted pretty well, still it could have been better... The story resembles "Indiana Jones" movies, and you would probably like this series if you are a fan of "treasure-hunter" movies... My vote is 8 out of 10, as it was a nice, relaxing movie.
