Did You Know?


Jay, the CIA Agent, is played by Christopher Backus, who is Mira Sorvino's (who plays Tess Chaykin) real life husband. See more »


The Templar knights are shown abandoning ship in a storm and then wading ashore wearing full chain mail and a sword. Swords are heavy and chain mail is heavier. Nobody would be able to float wearing them so would have had to get rid of them quickly or drown. See more »

I kept saying "It has to get better"
27 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

I watched part one and set up part two to record. All through the first part, I kept thinking, it had to get better. Sadly, it did not happen. Seems this picture has been made before, and a lot better. This is some of the worst acting I have ever seen. Was the working title "Indiana Jane and the Last Templar"? Even the musical score was terrible. It is hard to bring to mind a movie that did more things wrong than this loser. I did not read the book, but it has to be better than the movie, or nobody would have bought it.

As I said, I recorded the second part. I just do not know if I can actually bring myself to watch it. I suppose I will, just as I finish even bad books that I am reading.

I have no one to blame but myself, it was a made for TV mini-series. I should have known better.

I gave it a 2 because the rest of it just has to get better.
