"Succeeds in being worse than its predecesor"
1 stars

What is this? Oh my fucking God; after the Indiana Jones Rip-off of King Solomonís Mines (which was actually a remake), they come up with this even lamer flick?

I wonít even bother on the plot. If you seen all Indiana Jones movies plus the predecessor of this crap-fest, then youíve seen this movie. The only difference is that this movie is even more pathetic, more idiotic and most importantly, utterly BORING!!! The action sequences are completely uninspired, and done by the numbers. And when the film ends up with that Gold River bathing the main baddie and freezing the fucker like a gold statue, it was utterly atrocious.

Itís obvious ever since the first film that it was an Indiana Jones rip-off. At least the first one was mildly entertaining and had John Rhys-Davies from Raiders of the Lost Ark hamming it up. In this putrid waste of celluloid, it is more of bastardization than anything else and Henry Silva trying to come up believable as the main baddie sporting that weird alien language made it the more irritating than what it is.

Richard Chamberlain tries once again to come up like an Indiana Jones wannabe, and yet doesnít have the looks or the wits or the charisma or the brains for that matter, which made Indy so great. Sharon Stone is a tree. James Earl Jones is embarrassing, truly embarrassing especially with that huge axe of his.

After this shit, no wonder Chamberlain stuck with TV while Stone decided to flash her breasts and muff in order to have a career. Stick with Indiana Jones and forget this. 0-5
