Discover the centuries-old secrets of King Tutankhamen as two archaeologists race to recover the sacred object with the power to save the world, or destroy it, in this globe-trotting adventure starring Casper Van Dien, Jonathan Hyde, and Leonor Varela, and directed by action veteran Russell Mulcahy (Highlander). The year is 1922, and Danny Freemont (Van Dien) is an archeologist whose outlandish theories about the pyramids, Atlantis, and the Egyptian Book of the Dead have made him something of an outcast in the scientific community. Perhaps no one is more critical of Freemont's unconventional approach to archeology than Dr. Azelia Barakat (Varela), a serious-minded Egyptologist who scoffs at her free-spirited colleague's ideas about King Tutankhamen's mythical tomb. When Freemont determines that the Emerald Tablet rumored to be buried with the Egyptian king will provide its owner with the power to rule the world, Dr. Barakat's curiosity soon trumps her skepticism and the pair quickly set up a team of experts to locate the tomb and find the tablet. Despite Freemont and Dr. Barakat's noble intentions, their efforts to locate and protect the Emerald Tablet threaten to backfire as nefarious archeologist Morgan Sinclair (Hyde) tracks their every move in hopes of beating them to the prize and using the treasure to unleash the ultimate evil. Now, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance, the race to uncover one of history's greatest mysteries is on, and it's going to be a wild ride.~Jason Buchanan

Pretty Good for a Cheap Blu-Ray Disc
I bought this "dvd" because it was a Blu-Ray (I have a PS3) and it was only $13. While - this cinema masterpiece *cough cough* won't be winning any Academy awards - it IS a cute movie with good special effects and a fairly understandable story plot. I personally found it entertaining only because of the non-cohesiveness of the actors playing their roles. Also - some parts that were supposed to be serious and scary were actually quite funny.
Like I said, for only $13 bucks - it's not a bad purchase if you want to try out a Blu-Ray disc and not want to spend $30-$60 bucks for one.
