Sahara's biggest problem is twofold: the film's subtle ideological bent is alarming, and, in the lead, McConaughey is only just barely tolerable.

With this strong of a cast this film should have been much better.

I can't figure out just what I didn't like about this film, but I know I didn't really enjoy it.

...like having a swimsuit full of sand.
April 30, 2005
...nobody could've expected the unbelievable sense of dullness that's permeating every aspect of the film.

Pity, because McConaughey is born to play Pitt. Whether his shirt is on or off (personally I prefer the later) the actor cuts a dashing figure.
April 23, 2005
A really, really dumb film, but it's lots and lots of fun and entirely lacking in malice.

Just don't go expecting complex moral and ethical quandaries and you'll likely never think of Ishtar even once.
April 21, 2005
A hot-buttered popcorn flick that's deserted by its writers in the last act.

Sahara is a movie with Indiana Jones aspirations that plays more like a low-rent 007 clone.
April 18, 2005
In one spit-take-inducing moment, our heroes convert a wrecked prop plane into a desert sailboat, which they race across the sand to the strains of 'Magic Carpet Ride.'
April 17, 2005
Cussler's attempt to make his concept of an ironclad ship making its way from Richmond to the African desert is no more credible on film than on the written page.
April 17, 2005
jumps from plotline to plotline, stringing them together with a series of action setpieces that fulfill their obligations, but little more
April 16, 2005
Easy to look at and even easier to forget.
April 15, 2005
'...best described as Tom Clancy meets Indiana Jones.'
April 15, 2005
On the occasional moment when McConaughey actually works himself up to being heroic, Sahara positively soars.

Despite the vast beauty of location settings in Morocco and Spain, the vast lack of chemistry between the two stars is appalling.

Sahara has lots of sound and fury trying to cover up for a hopelessly meandering story and a dull hero.
