Storyline

Jack Hunter is abducted blindfolded to a Turkish US base to be recruited by the NSA, told his mentor was killed because Albert Littmann's Russian mob employer Doridanov want the ancient Osiris-weapon. He accepts to go look for the other part in Gizeh, where archaeologist Lena Halstrom has dug up a lead on a site which was attacked by mysterious, mythologically cloaked men, hence the Egyptian in charge, Said, shut it down till further notice. In fact it's the doing of a Midianite (Sinai desert) sect of Akhenaton-worshipers, who try to steal the obelisk from the museum after Jack deciphers its Ugarritian cuneiform text, which contains clues for a treasure-hunt to the pharaoh's tomb-treasure. Said assumes their flight criminal and mobilizes an army colonel, whose unbridled ambition proves even more dangerous for Jack's party, which includes his Syrian friends from the first.

Whilst in the museum, and Jack is examining the obelisk, he asks if it has been carbon dated. Carbon dating is only valid for organic materials - the obelisk is clearly made of stone and could not be carbon dated. See more »

Indiana Jones trash
17 July 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

JACK HUNTER: THE QUEST FOR AKHENATAN'S TOMB is the second of a trilogy of TV movies featuring Ivan Sergei's Jack Hunter, a wooden rip-off of Indiana Jones. Hunter is a character who's made to slavishly copy every aspect of the Harrison Ford character, but Sergei is no Ford. In fact he gives a terrible performance, which is useful as everything about this film is terrible.

The female leads are reduced to eye candy from the beginning, standing back while the men take over and do the real work. The plot is a jumbled mess of globe hopping (most of the story takes place in Egypt) and non-existent budgeting, which means that 90% of the film looks cheesy and fake. The direction is rubbish as well, but the worst thing here is the script, which is a crass waste of time.
