A new eagle of the desert An author of adventure novels is due a book with a short turnaround time. Coincidentally, her father is an archeologist that was never part of her life. She gets an opportunity to track down a big treasure in the desert while following in her father's footsteps. The author jumps at the chance to go on this adventure and write all about it. "I just kicked your ass. Tell me if it hurts, alright?" Yen-Ping Chu, director of Kung Fu Dunk, The Love Winner, A Marvelous Detective, China Dragon, Angel Heart, Slave of the Sword, and The War Dogs, delivers The Treasure Hunter. The storyline for this picture is kind of too convenient to be true. It just comes together easily and the action scenes are below average. The acting is okay and the cast includes Jay Chou, Chiling Lin, Eric Tsang, and Daoming Chen. "All fathers love their daughters when they're in trouble." I came across this film on Netflix and decided to give it a shot. This is a bland and disappointing Indiana Jones type adventure movie. The spiritual pieces were weird and the action wasn't anything special. Overall, I'd skip this picture. "Don't fall in love with me." Grade: D

A chinese martial arts spaghetti western ala Indy, alas Chou's no Ford, but I must say they did a pretty admirable job with the sand dunes and the costumes. A somewhat entertaining collaboration between taiwan, hk & china, if one can get past Chou's 1-D blank stares.

It's not a bad Taiwan rip-off of The Mummy and Indiana Jones film. I was still entertained by cheesy fight scenes and action-packed story. Now, the story is nothing much to mention and time of the story is weird. First, they are in the dessert and another scene shows them in a modern city. Unless they are jumpers, it is impossible but in a story. The action (some are a bit sloppy) is not great by any means but it is entertaining. The acting is not that good. Jay Chou, I don't even know how he got into the movie with his one and only expression. Chiling Lin, the female main character, is a disappointment.
