Just Horrible
26 October 2000 | by ApolloBoy109See all my reviews

I want to know how these kinds of films get money. How does an 'Omega Code' or a 'Vivero Letter' make it beyond the script reading process? Basic writing rules are broken here. The acting including Fred Ward's is pure high school. Now, we all know Robert Patrick is NO ACTOR, but usually he's interesting to watch --- but the writers gave him nothing to say and he ain't that pretty or naked. So why? The worst of it is -- this is suppose to be a tresaure hunt, and as a veiwer half the fun is following the heroes as they go through the steps but there are no steps. What we are given is "No don't blow up the temple. Usually there are keystones that open the door. Let me look. Oh, look, here it is" or my personal favorite, "The symbol is the magician, (we are never shown a close up of the 'tray') so that must mean a river with teeth" Just bad. Purely Bad. Bad. So bad ------------------
