Sea of Dust Reviews
With good writers and good actors, this could have been a good film. It certainly has an interesting central idea, making a head-on attack on the theme of the necessity of suffering in Christianity and its forays into suffering inflicted on others in the name of salvation. Unfortunately, the acting in "Sea of Dust" is uniformly horrible and the screenplay barely coherent, zipping back and forth in the story as a plot device. There is some blood, but for the most part the story revolves around Prester John's control of people's minds, and the scenes in which he appears are ludicrous. Tom Savini is a wooden, boring actor, playing his role with all the skill of a ten year old in a school play. The action scenes in the film make up neither for none of it.
Leave this one in the dust.
