Okay, lot of comments on this movie from others. Let me just say that one of the things I'll give them credit for is taking a lot of chances with stuff in this movie, many of which succeed, and some fail. Yes, I agree some of the special effects are downright distracting. I really dis-liked the hot-rodded air balloon. But, weigh those annoyances against the absolutely awesome dueling scene between the two woman in ancient Egypt. Buy the DVD just to watch that scene over and over. Nice to have some talented action females, not just poseurs (Charlies Angels, ugh). Also, there is some really decent non-action stuff going on - a kid actor that does a nice job, especially interacting with his captors. Lots of positives with this flic, so don't let some glaring special effect errors ruin having a good time.
