Movie Reviews

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hallmark Entertainment produced this film for television as a two part miniseries, thereby it sometimes is a little too long, but once the action kicks in, it's one of those cheesy B movie actioners with pretty good special effects.
Casper van Dien, as usual, is heroic and tries to infuse a Harrison Fordish style of action hero, but doesn't quite have the charisma Ford had. The plot centers on the discovery of King Tut's tomb and the missing fourth of a tablet that will release evil demons imprisoned by Tut himself thousands of years before. Malcolm McDowell shows up as the head of the Hellfire Counsel, a group of businessmen who want the tablet to rule the world whereas chief baddie Jonathan Hyde wants the tablet to recall the evil demon Set(sp?). The movie is your usual comic book style adventure with improbable events and corny dialogue but it's fun in its own expected way."
Curse me, baby!

"This movie is bad in that yummy, did-that-just-happen way that guarantees a good time and alot of laughs. I loved it.

There's solid acting here, in a cheesy kind of way. Casper Van Dien gives it his all. His all isn't much, granted, but he has heart. The main villain...sorry, pal, forgot your name...emotes with all he's got. Our heroine has an accent that comes and goes but, b'gum, she's trying her best. And, in a movie like this, her best is good enough.

Malcolm McDowell? He mostly sits around a table and acts grumpy. Does a grumpilicious job of it, though.

There are huge plot holes in the storyline, sure. What plot there is appears to have, borrowed...from THE MUMMY (the recent one, not the b&w one) with MUMMY-ish music to match. The special effects are B-level all the way -- but perfect, PERFECT, for this kind of movie. To my surprise, the flick showed some decent production values and I was never bored.

For a few bucks, you get almost three hours of cheesefest that I absolutely recommend."
Fantastic Movie!

"I think everyone who said this movie was awful was wrong. This movie is SUPERB for a mini series. Also for a Hallmark movie this movie had AWESOME special effects, a great cast, and even included a great deal of comedy. I actually prefer the longer movies, and if you don't like them then DON'T buy them!! It's fun getting lost in these fantasy worlds, and I really enjoy the genre of The Mummy meets Indiana Jones!! For 7.99 I highly recommend this movie, it was worth the buy."
Not a bad time killer, but goes on WAY TO LONG

"This was originally a Hallmark channel mini-series and it's not that bad,but it was broken up over two nights and played well in that format. If you watch it like that , with a break in between , you might be better off than watching it in one setting. Watching the whole three hours at one time really shows the hole in the plot and wares on the nerves. A special mention needs to be made about the fact that some of the F/X's are not kid friendly , even though this is a T.V. mini-series. Watch it first to see if you want children under 10 to see it."
