An overlong adventure which suffers for its poor editing and storyboarding. It has a shifting tone - it can't decide whether to be an action-comedy or a straight adventure film. While there is a good soundtrack and a fun sense of adventure as it rolls, the dialogue misfires. We had a good Spielbergian type mystery villain for a while which kept up the tension but it drained away by the third act. From then on, frankly, I didn't care what happened. A very big explosion was probably needed at the end of the convoluted plot, or a payoff that justified the investment in the main character. Instead we get a crowbarred romance spot followed by a stub of an ending.
