Product Description

When a medieval decoding device points the way to the long-lost treasure of the Knights Templar, an archaeologist (Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino) and FBI agent (Scott Foley) join forces to find it, never realizing the Vatican will stop at nothing to prevent its discovery. For at the end of a trail littered with hidden clues, ancient codes and the bodies of silenced conspirators, lies a secret so shocking it will change the face of history forever. Based on Raymond Khoury's #1 international bestseller, The Last Templar is a pulse-pounding adventure where nothing is what it seems. And only the truth will set you free.

I honestly do not know where to start with this trash. It is based on the novel by Raymond Khoury, who must be kicking himself for allowing his name to be attached to this Dan Brownesque tripe. It supposedly starts with four `crusaders' riding into a Vatican Exhibition in modern day New York, they behead a police officer before riding into the building and stealing a load of priceless artefacts.

Then our heroine Tess Chaykin (Mira Sorvino) grabs a Crozier and a police horse and charges off to joust with one of them. This is whilst the NYPD stand around doing nothing - yeah right. Then the FBI gets involved in the shape of Sean Daley (Scott Foley). What develops is a plot that is so implausibly bad that it will make your eyes water. This is all about the Knights Templar and their hidden treasure which has been oft speculated about. We have a tale of three Templar's back in 1291 escaping from Jerusalem via a river, Jerusalem is land locked and has no river. They then watch it burn from the sea. Yep they had pretty good vision in those days as its is some 30 odd miles from the coast.

Then they get shipwrecked but manage to make it to shore in full chain mail where they bury something that will undermine the entirety of the scriptures and therefore Christianity. Then back to modern day and the hapless Ms Sorvino who gets emotionally attached to the FBI bloke and heads off to Bodrum in Turkey which despite claims from the Turkish Tourist Board that is lush, green and a modern city, turns out to be a desert where people can not even speak Turkish. They uncover more plot and find out that the Vatican is involved and a rogue archaeologist puts in another appearance to add some excessive `ham' to the whole proceedings.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Oct. 12 2010
Bad acting, incredibly bad directing. You could never believe from seeing this that Sorvino is an Oscar winner. The book was great. This movie destroys it completely. A horrendous waste of time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the watch Aug. 31 2010
As the other reviewer pointed out, there are differences between the book and the movie. There always will be. Should not the book envelope your imagination more so and the movie provides entertainment and conclusion, a majority of the time?

This is one such case. The movie originally made for television is well made and does provide entertainment. Its SMOTJ twist is well done and leaves the viewer waiting with anticipation of the next return to history moment. The movie goes back in time if you will, with what the members of the order were doing, where, in relation to what Tess is currently following, delving into - nicely done.

A good vs. evil sub-plot is also present and leads the viewer to a good ending - as it should be. Worth a watch and purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suprisingly good May 25 2010
By M. Bailin TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As the other reviewer suggested, I enjoyed this one quite a bit and had not previously read the book. It can probably best be described as an interesting cross-breeding between Da Vinci Code and the Indiana Jones flix ... there's even a funny line early in the film where Tess is described as a "female Indy".

I think what impressed me most about this one was my surprise at finding, in the credits, that it was made for TV. Back when those first started, when I was teaching little Noah how to walk, they were notoriously dull and cheaply made, but this one's definitely got major-studio quality in it. It's a little "lighter" than Da Vinci Code, but definitely much more thought-provoking than the Indy adventures. By all means give it a try.
