Master explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) takes on the adventure of his life when he embarks on a treasure hunt through some of the most dangerous regions of North Africa. Searching for what locals call "The Ship of Death", a long lost Civil War battleship filled with coins, Pitt and his wisecracking sidekick (Steve Zahn) use their wits and clever heroics to help Doctor Eva Rojas (Penelope Cruz) who believes the ship may be linked to mysterious deaths in the very same area.
The big Mac is certainly an able stand-in for the updated Indiana Jones role. Suggest that you put your brain into neutral and enjoy the flick for what it's suposed to be. Mindless hokum.Anything else will leave you bitter and twisted.
