    Synopsis


    Sahara
    Matthew McConaughey stars as explorer and adventurer Dirk Pitt in this adaptation of the best-selling novel by Clive Cussler. Pitt thinks he may have found both a fortune and the answer to a long-standing mystery when he discovers a rare coin in the waters of a river in West Africa. During the Civil War, an ironclad battleship with a valuable cargo went missing, and Pitt's theory is that the coin places the ship somewhere in the Sahara Desert. Pitt and his goofy sidekick, Al Giordino (Steve Zahn), set out to find it, but along the way they make the acquaintance of Dr. Eva Rojas (Penélope Cruz), a scientist and physician who is trying to determine the source of a strange and deadly disease sweeping the nation. As Eva joins Dirk and Al, they begin to wonder if the mysteries they're trying to uncover might be somehow linked. Sahara was only the second of Cussler's Dirk Pitt adventures to be adapted for the screen; the first, 1980's Raise the Titanic, was publicly dismissed by the author. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Excellant Movie

      Of all movie adaptations of novels, Sahara has to be the best. Not only did it follow the story better than most, but the actors actually looked like the characters. (ok, except for Al. But what actor is a 5' 4" 230 pound silician linebacker?)

      Had a VHS quality copy and got this DVD replacement for only $6.00. Much like a cross between Nation Treasure and and Indiana Jones type adventure. Funny too.

      Like a The Mummy or Indiana Jones on a different scale. Matthew McConaughey is great as a kind per Nathan Drake. And Penelope Cruz is gorgeous.

      Sahara is a great action packed movie. The performance delivered by Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz are what makes it worth watching.

      This movie has a great story plot and full of surprises to keep your attention. The suspense is not to much and just enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. Great humor spread through the movie.

      If you like the Matthew Mac movies, you're going to love Sahara. Sure, the story is a little imaginative, but the acting is great, action-packed, and you get some good laughs along the way.

      While not a big budget film, the cast works great with each other for an enjoyable adventure.
