A shame this slick vehicle often stalls in a traffic jam of action-adventure cliches and unnecessary mucking about.
June 5, 2019
A breezy summer action thriller that knows just what it is and has a ball being just that.

Operating with a machine-tooled efficiency, Sahara seems blithely unaware of its utter predictability.

To get a franchise going, you need your own style, and this movie hasn't an original thought on anything.

Anyone with even the slightest awareness of global politics will cringe at dialogue like "No one cares about Africa" and the notion that good old fashioned American cunning will always triumph, no matter how dire the circumstances.

For an adventure movie based on chase scenes in exotic locations "Sahara" never takes hold because director Breck Eisner and his team of screenwriters can't agree on what the story's about or what tone should resonate against it.

The whole movie is a kick, actually.

A pretty offensive comedy about Africans who range from primitive to demonic that, sorry, is just not funny.

Vapid, lengthy, and mostly lifeless -- kind of like the desert it's named for.

Sahara rather resembles National Treasure, another film with a strained story line and deadening lack of visual richness.

For "Sahara," the problem is that we have the Indiana Jones movies to compare it to, and I'm afraid there's no comparison. It's never more than a likable poseur.

It tried to be National Treasure and it failed.
October 7, 2005
The plotting is too complex for a generally stupid picture, but that didn't stop me from getting sucked in by director Breck Eisner's nicely paced action sequences.

Like the African desert that lends the film its name, this so-called adventure is coarse, dry, and overheated.
