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...

HASH(0x9ecae420) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9eddd120) out of 5 stars 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.

A special military unit is sent on a secret mission to rescue a scientist who is apparently trapped in an underground lab. The elite soldiers are led by Mack (Cuba Gooding Jr.), a capable soldier with a past. Of course, they are in for a nasty surprise. This is not a big secret. Check the film's title - "The Devil's Tomb." What else do you need to know?

Actually, the "Resident Evil"-like story begins promisingly. About 15 minutes in, however, the story just stops moving forward and bogs down in the clumsy narrative that is repetitious and disconnected, often interrupted by uninteresting flashbacks. The premise itself is not bad, I admit, though it has been done before countless times, and with more flare.

In short, we need mystery, suspense, action, scare or something, anything. In "The Devil's Tomb," you have none. No scares, no tension, nothing. None of the actors look like specially trained soldiers. None of them seem really interested in what their characters are doing.

Ray Winstone, Ron Pearlman and Bill Moseley appear as support, and the veteran actors' performances are decent. Sadly, their roles are not big. As to Cuba Gooding Jr. he is not bad. "The Devil's Tomb" marks the directorial debut of the actor Jason Connery, but he is not ready for the job. Perhaps someone like Paul W.S. Anderson would have made a better film out of the clichéd script.

HASH(0x9fc71090) out of 5 stars 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.

HASH(0x9ebf3918) out of 5 stars A zombie film dressed up in Exorcist's clothing June 15 2011
By Michael J. Tresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
So you want to make a film about zombies, but the whole zombie thing is overblown. What do you do? Make the zombies possessed humans instead! Director Jason Connery takes the ickiest aspects of the Exorcist and projects them onto the zombie trope in Devil's Tomb, complete with boils, blotched skin, white irises, and black vomit. These zombies are actually possessed priests sent to contain a Nephilim, which in a twist worthy of Chuck Missler, is portrayed as a Grey alien. That's about the only innovative twist Devil's Tomb has to offer.

And really, why should we be surprised? The warning signs are right there in the title: Devil's. Tomb. This is a devil's tomb, get it? He's entombed and he's a devil! This Nephilim is trying to get out of course, and he possesses a variety of Special Forces soldiers to execute his ingenious plan of...not using the elevator that the soldiers take down to reach him.

Oh yeah, the plot. Mack (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) leads a Special Forces team on a mission to rescue a scientist named Wesley (Ron Perlman) at the behest of CIA agent Elissa Cardell (Valerie Cruz). Wesley, who also happens to be Elissa's father, was on an archaeological dig site that has since been sealed for mysterious reasons. Elissa won't explain why, but we know it has something to do with Wesley. The movie wisely saves Perlman for last, because really, even Gooding is sleepwalking through this movie.

The movie shambles from there. Half the film is taken up by flashbacks to the various soldier's sins: soldiers who had abortions, soldiers who lust after porn stars, and soldiers who activate self-destruct devices that require a hasty exit with great self-sacrifice. This is one of those movies where every character is defined by his sins, because those will be important later, and so the script doesn't bother to work for the audience's sympathy. There's nothing quite like a Special Forces team that can't stop looking at porn in the middle of a highly classified op.

Bill Moseley tries to lend some gravitas to the zombies as the Bible-quoting Duncan, but really he just comes off as Moseley in zombie makeup cashing in his paycheck. More disappointing is Gooding, who toughens up his funny guy image with a potty mouth. The rest of the actors I can excuse for this nonsense but I expected better from him.

You have to work hard to make a zombie film boring to zombie fans, but Devil's Tomb does it by never admitting its shameful secret...that it's a zombie film dressed up in Exorcist's clothing.
