I really like this movie as the setting of the film really gave this movie its edge. This movie was like star wars on Earth wherein you get to see a lot of places throughout the movie. As the heroes make their way to desserts, ruins, jungles the viewers will surely be mesmerized and hooked to the film.
Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz is a really good tandem as proven in the first installment of the film. Their chemistry was really perfect for this movie. I want to give credit also to the movie writers of the film as they were able to think of unique plot for the movie. The touch of comedy also makes this film fun to watch!
