i had seen a trailer for this movie and thought,hmm interesting,I like cuba gooding jr and it also featured ron perlman,whom i like in the hellboy series,wow,they must have needed some cash desperately to make this stinker.They should have left it buried in the cutting room,all of it.
Concept goes, that some kind of deity(maybe the devil hisself) is found buried in a desert-located subterranean location.You see some kind of scientiffic folks down there with something frozen in ice at the beginning and then all hell breaks loose and gooding and gang in a military operation are sent to save everyone.From there movie goes straight to "you know where",silly plot,all kinds of possessions of various folks,big lead up and to what..........basically nothing,no big creature effects,no witty "devilish"dialogue or personna,in the end a total let-down,just watch the trailer,forget the movie and save your hour and a half for something else.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! What a joke!! This is quite possibly the worst movie i have ever seen in my life. And to think that Cuba Gooding Jr. won an Oscar not so long ago. I didn't think it was possible to make such a terrible movie. Boy I was wrong! Directed by Sean Connery's son too!! I'd dis-own him! This movie is a steaming pile of s***! Not even good for a laugh like most b-grade films.... Not worth the 1 star i gave it either but it's as low as Amazon will let me rate it! Just an all round really bad film! Shame...

Oh this is bad... May 26 2009
By Keil Steven Greg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I thought there might be a chance this movie would be amusing, if not slightly reasonable given the cast.

I was wrong.

There might be some spoilers here, and for this movie I use the word lightly, but be warned.

The basic plot:

1) Crack team of commando type soldiers get assigned a special mission. Cuba us their leader.
2) An anthropologist, who works for the CIA, is the special 1-time leader. Their mission is to extract her father, who is another scientist type.
3) The go into a bunker, which used to be a tomb (1,000 feet deep). In the process, we learn that "sand can blast your skin off, so stay tight". Because if you are close to one another, obviously sand *can't* blast your skin off... for some reason.
4) The SAS type folks then find a person full of disease like boils. Of course, they treat the person and don't think that this is odd. The person is a priest, still alive, who they don't bother really containing.
5) Most of the SAS types go down a very fast moving elevator. 1 stays up. We learn that you can watch porn anywhere, as the 1 at the top level is keen to view porn. Later (by the way) he see's a hot lady on the level (which they previously cleared). So, we learn that SAS folks expect to find hot, naked ladies on levels of underground bunkers - which were previously found to have no hot naked ladies - and this is normal. Of course she eats him.
6) Back to our fearless heroes below. We learn that if you are SAS, and you see your unborn baby girl suddenly be a little girl while wondering the tombs underground corridors, you should follow her. It's a great idea. Then we learn that if she turns into a demon, that's reasonable (and she's still...cute?) I suppose SAS deal with that daily. Then, if you hear her again, you should follow her again. Even after she tried to bite you last time. Then, as you *are* in a danger zone and on a mission, whilst hearing your demon baby calling down the halls, our fearless mother to be decides it's a good time to suck on another woman's disease boils while satisfying her lesbian curiosity. Okay.
7) The rest of the troop go wandering around, looking for the lead scientist. Whilst doing the wandering, we learn a few more things:
a) That any other hallucination is something good, and should be followed, listened to, or otherwise obeyed.
b) That demon's don't know how to use elevators. But they can discourse on philosophy, open doors, use radios, equipment, and basically anything else. Except elevators.
8) The above relates to some plot line where the demons (I think) want to get out of the tomb. But they can't. Even though it turns out there are *two* entrances/exits, and for 1 of them you *didn't* need to use the elevator. It's a mystery why they can't get out. Maybe I missed something about them being impaired with elevator button pushing.
9) So they have the showdown with the major demon thing. Then, Cuba's character, who doesn't seem at all religious, get's inspired by another character. When he touches her amulet, he instantly becomes infused with passion and deep spiritual belief he's never had before, and suddenly becomes obsessed with a new calling in life. Cuba is now the religious demon hunter.

One could go on and on with the silly plot holes. If any of this sounds ridiculous to you, that's because it is. Really.

Watch this movie if you get it free, don't value your time (or are really sick, and laying on the couch in a fever), or really want to laugh at how bad a movie can be.

Low Budget Straight To DVD Release June 11 2009
By Elvis Zombie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This movie isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The problem seems to be the high expectations people are having for this film starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Ron Pearlman, and Henry Rollins.
This is standard B movie stuff. The plot is a rehash of material done in the past. The title says everything you need to know...THE DEVIL'S TOMB. If you don't like cheeseball movies that include the demonic possessed, projectile vomit and Satan then this isn't for you.
The acting was actually pretty good for a low budget film. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ron Pearlman are fine actors, and I found it entertaining watching former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins overact in his role as a Catholic Priest.
The latex monster FX (boils, demonic make-up, blood) were also pretty good, but the few CGI FX included were dated. The plot could have been better, but I give the movie three stars because it was fairly entertaining compared to the other straight to video drek coming out these days. My wife hated this film and left the room until it was over. I believe most people will react as she did to this movie, so if you don't like B movies don't even bother.
I suggest renting rather than buying. Unless you are a hardcore Ron Pearlman, Cuba Gooding Jr. or Henry Rollins fan then you probably aren't going to get a whole lot out of this.

Don't they have anything lower than one star? April 26 2010
By impressed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Absolutely the last time I watch a movie without checking out the reviews first, even if it is free. An hour and a half of my life lost, waiting for something of some value to come out of that hole of a movie - never happened. Vague notions of a plot, intermixed with dumb wandering soldiers, looking to die. Something about fallen angels, but they never could put that thought completely together. A complete waste of time.

Sealed Evil In A Can July 30 2009
By Julian Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The Devil's Tomb: 4 out of 10: Not since "Killer Flood: The Day the Dam Broke" has a movie's title rendered about eighty percent of the plot development mute. Dumbass spoiler alert... Hey, the mysterious underground archeological site turns out to be a tomb. Whose tomb you ask? (IN MY BEST CHURCH LADY VOICE) "Could it be Satan???".

Okay so The Devil's Tomb is a remake of Prince of Darkness, but instead of Donald Pleasence we have the Space Marines from Aliens after a tragic mass lobotomization. Now I do realize that not every single American soldier is a fully-fledged genius; but honestly how any of these thunderheads managed to make it through basic training without throwing the pin is anyone's guess. (When you pull a pin on a grenade, you theoretically have a choice to throw one of two things. Most people choose the grenade part.) The characterization of the soldiers is simply not believable. This starts the film on a shakey foundation from which it never fully recovers. Not that things improves all that much when the mumbo-jumbo starts.

This is a shame because the acting is overall up to the task. Now when you have Cuba Gooding Jr., Ray Winstone, Ron Perlman and even Taryn Manning (who really surprised me with a fun performance.); you are going to have the potential for some decent acting. Throw in a fun Henry Rollins as a priest of all things and an over the top performance by Bill Moseley and you have one of the best-acted B movies this year. In a large cast only only Franky G drops the ball, in a horribly written role, as the dumb muscle.

The direction is by Jason Connery, who is best known* as Bennington in the TV Series "Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!". The direction is serviceable, though he really needed a military advisor on set; or, at the very least, someone who has played paintball. The poor soldiers did not seem to know what to do with their rifles and kept pointing them at each other. In addition, if you are firing a kill shot you may want to line it up AWAY from the hostage.

Special effects and set design are competent. Heck there is even a lesbian subplot that threatens to make the movie interesting (Though the script drops the ball on that as well.) If you can get through the first twenty minutes without your eyes rolling out of your head, The Devil's Tomb becomes a collection of interesting performances looking for a purpose. And figuring out who is buried in the Devil's Tomb will not keep most people entertained. (And no it isn't Ulysses S Grant).

*He is also the son of Scottish actor Sean Connery who played the old Spaniard in the Highlander movies during the Eighties.

Just plain bad. June 19 2009
By JSR700 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw the trailer of this movie and it looked well done (I guess editing can do wonders). But when I saw the movie, I can't believe Cuba Gooding signed up for this. I believe in casting the right actor to play the right character. Here, the casting is pretty bad. In every good military or war film, most actors undergo boot camp. Here, it's just obvious that not one of them had any training, e.g. movement and handling of weapons. The only credible acting here is done by Gooding. But even Mr. "show me the money" can't carry an entire production gone bad. The rest are miscast. Any film which stars Ron Perelman as a scientist is bound to fail. I don't think even the deleted scenes from "Alien" would be as bad as this movie. The characters are supposed to be members of an elite military covert unit. But they talk and appear to be unprofessional. Taryn Manning is supposed to be a doctor or a medic. But she carries a weapon. Stephanie Jacobsen is not believable as a soldier. She can't act the part. It's just out of her range. I don't think she can even play a Vietnamese villager in a Vietnam war film. Brandon Fobbs's character is supposed to speak several languages but his accent is thuggish. Jason London's character "Hicks" appears to be taken directly from Michael Biehn's character in "Aliens", "Cpl. Dwayne Hicks". The helmets used for the flashback scenes are too small making the soldiers look funny. The blood and make-up are too red. Jason Connery should take some tips from Ridley Scott's "Black Hawk Down" in shooting battle scenes. And what are priests doing under the Middle Eastern desert? The demons look like leftover characters from "Buffy" or "Angel". This DVD is a waste of time and money. The editing and lighting are bad as well. The worse part is the direction. I am guessing Jason Connery never went to film school. But then again, Quentin Tarantino didn't go either. I could have made a better movie than this. And I am not even a director.
