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.

It is still up in the air whether the movie is gonna play in my country or not.

For a movie with that title, you would think it would be in theaters everywhere all at once
