The pace never flags, the plot retains a level of obscurity that allows belief to be completely suspended and it just doesn't seem like 2 hours before the credits roll. Great simple fun and hugely enjoyable.
This didn't live up to my expectations, I'm afraid. I am a big fan of Nic Cage but even he could not save this for me. I found it rather unbelievable in places, but also a bit predictable; seems like a contradiction but I don't want to explain for fear of giving away the plot! If it was trying to be one of the Indiana Jones films then I think it missed the mark.
