saharaAdventurer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) comes to Mali to find a Civil War ironclad that made its way to Africa in 1865; he joins forces with a WHO doctor (Pen√©lope Cruz). An adventure flick of the classical kind that benefits from its African locations. The movie has a certain charm, OK action sequences and fairly amusing heroes ‚Äď but that‚Äôs all there is to it. Director Breck Eisner raises the temperature in the final showdown, but the film‚Äôs general mediocrity is a problem, and so is the overlong running time.

2005-U.S.-Britain-Germany-Spain. 127 min. Color. Directed by Breck Eisner. Novel: Clive Cussler. Cast: Matthew McConaughey (Dirk Pitt), Penélope Cruz (Eva Rojas), Steve Zahn (Al Giordino), William H. Macy, Delroy Lindo, Lambert Wilson. 

Trivia: Hugh Jackman was allegedly considered for the part of Pitt. The character previously appeared in the film Raise the Titanic! (1980).
