Even thought I did not have super high expectations about this movie I was excited to go see it. The subject matter of treasure hunting has always been one of my favorites. Thanks Indiana Jones. Also the Illuminati undertone is always interesting, that being a very interesting subject to me.
The movie was paced just about right. There was a couple of scenes that did drag more than they needed to but it picked up again quick enough to keep me interested. Nothing too impressive on the special effects, what we did see fit the movie. It was overall very entertaining, really cool for kids. I give it 3 stars. It is not something you have to watch in the theater unless you have the money burning your pocket.
