Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

In a glossy adap­ta­tion of Clive Cus­sler’s novel, a suitably buff Matthew McConaughey plays trea­sure hunter Dirk Pitt – a kind of low-rent In­di­ana Jones – who, aided by a faith­ful side­kick ( Steve Zahn) with a quip for ev­ery oc­ca­sion and a sul­try World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion doc­tor ( Pené­lope Cruz), sets out to un­earth a lost bat­tle­ship from the Amer­i­can Civil War, sup­pos­edly lo­cated in

North Africa ( Mali to be pre­cise). The search heats up when the trio stum­bles upon a mys­te­ri­ous plague, lead­ing them to un­cover the schem­ing of a power-mad dic­ta­tor ( Len­nie James) and his less-than-san­i­tary meth­ods of dis­pos­ing of nu­clear waste.
