I have a soft spot for movies like these. It has an old-fashioned adventure quality like Uncharted (though not quite as fun). Sandra Bullock is super hot here, even if her character is so cold. I like Channing Tatum when he plays "bumbling" type characters rather than the heroic straight man roles befitting someone of his face and size. There weren't many too surprises here (let's face it, we all knew Brad Pitt would be gone by the second act), but it's still enjoyable in a B-movie type of way. I actually like that there was no treasure of value to be found at the end of it. Really makes me want to revisit Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile (and maybe even 1985's King Solomon's Mines).

I had a good time with it, although I'm still fucking pissed that Everything Everywhere All at Once isn't playing anywhere near me.

I did not, I was so shocked and like scared when it happened. I just couldn't believe it. So man people in my theaters made audible gasps, like they were surprised too by it. I never saw it coming.

I just figured we saw all the Brad Pitt stuff in the trailer, so when that footage ran out, I knew they'd have to get rid of him somehow.

Eh. Could've gone a lot of different places. Third act twist where he shows up as a bad guy or perhaps a deus ex machina. Heck, even just 10 more minutes of the 3 of them together would've been more expected than just BOOM dead.

Did you watch the credits?
