Customer Reviews

Poor screenplay, bad dialogue, very shallow character development; not even decent special effects.

Even if you like cheap movies or don't mind badly done things because of specific actors, I would say "caution, Will Robinson!" to watching this film.

Because if you are close to one another, obviously sand *can't* blast your skin off... for some reason.

I thought there might be a chance this movie would be amusing, if not slightly reasonable given the cast.

I was wrong.

There might be some spoilers here, and for this movie I use the word lightly, but be warned.

The basic plot:

1) Crack team of commando type soldiers get assigned a special mission. Cuba us their leader.
2) An anthropologist, who works for the CIA, is the special 1-time leader. Their mission is to extract her father, who is another scientist type.
3) The go into a bunker, which used to be a tomb (1,000 feet deep). In the process, we learn that "sand can blast your skin off, so stay tight". Because if you are close to one another, obviously sand *can't* blast your skin off... for some reason.
4) The SAS type folks then find a person full of disease like boils. Of course, they treat the person and don't think that this is odd. The person is a priest, still alive, who they don't bother really containing.
5) Most of the SAS types go down a very fast moving elevator. 1 stays up. We learn that you can watch porn anywhere, as the 1 at the top level is keen to view porn. Later (by the way) he see's a hot lady on the level (which they previously cleared). So, we learn that SAS folks expect to find hot, naked ladies on levels of underground bunkers - which were previously found to have no hot naked ladies - and this is normal. Of course she eats him.
6) Back to our fearless heroes below. We learn that if you are SAS, and you see your unborn baby girl suddenly be a little girl while wondering the tombs underground corridors, you should follow her. It's a great idea. Then we learn that if she turns into a demon, that's reasonable (and she's still...cute?) I suppose SAS deal with that daily.

This movie isn't as bad as everyone is making it out to be. The problem seems to be the high expectations people are having for this film starring Cuba Gooding Jr., Ron Pearlman, and Henry Rollins.
This is standard B movie stuff. The plot is a rehash of material done in the past. The title says everything you need to know...THE DEVIL'S TOMB. If you don't like cheeseball movies that include the demonic possessed, projectile vomit and Satan then this isn't for you.
The acting was actually pretty good for a low budget film. Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ron Pearlman are fine actors, and I found it entertaining watching former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins overact in his role as a Catholic Priest.
The latex monster FX (boils, demonic make-up, blood) were also pretty good, but the few CGI FX included were dated. The plot could have been better, but I give the movie three stars because it was fairly entertaining compared to the other straight to video drek coming out these days. My wife hated this film and left the room until it was over. I believe most people will react as she did to this movie, so if you don't like B movies don't even bother.
I suggest renting rather than buying. Unless you are a hardcore Ron Pearlman, Cuba Gooding Jr. or Henry Rollins fan then you probably aren't going to get a whole lot out of this.

The Devil's Tomb: 4 out of 10: Not since "Killer Flood: The Day the Dam Broke" has a movie's title rendered about eighty percent of the plot development mute. Dumbass spoiler alert... Hey, the mysterious underground archeological site turns out to be a tomb. Whose tomb you ask? (IN MY BEST CHURCH LADY VOICE) "Could it be Satan???".

Okay so The Devil's Tomb is a remake of Prince of Darkness, but instead of Donald Pleasence we have the Space Marines from Aliens after a tragic mass lobotomization. Now I do realize that not every single American soldier is a fully-fledged genius; but honestly how any of these thunderheads managed to make it through basic training without throwing the pin is anyone's guess. (When you pull a pin on a grenade, you theoretically have a choice to throw one of two things. Most people choose the grenade part.) The characterization of the soldiers is simply not believable. This starts the film on a shakey foundation from which it never fully recovers. Not that things improves all that much when the mumbo-jumbo starts.

This is a shame because the acting is overall up to the task. Now when you have Cuba Gooding Jr., Ray Winstone, Ron Perlman and even Taryn Manning (who really surprised me with a fun performance.); you are going to have the potential for some decent acting. Throw in a fun Henry Rollins as a priest of all things and an over the top performance by Bill Moseley and you have one of the best-acted B movies this year. In a large cast only only Franky G drops the ball, in a horribly written role, as the dumb muscle.

The direction is by Jason Connery, who is best known* as Bennington in the TV Series "Mary-Kate and Ashley in Action!".

Format: DVD
A special military unit is sent on a secret mission to rescue a scientist who is apparently trapped in an underground lab. The elite soldiers are led by Mack (Cuba Gooding Jr.), a capable soldier with a past. Of course, they are in for a nasty surprise. This is not a big secret. Check the film's title - "The Devil's Tomb." What else do you need to know?

Actually, the "Resident Evil"-like story begins promisingly. About 15 minutes in, however, the story just stops moving forward and bogs down in the clumsy narrative that is repetitious and disconnected, often interrupted by uninteresting flashbacks. The premise itself is not bad, I admit, though it has been done before countless times, and with more flare.

In short, we need mystery, suspense, action, scare or something, anything. In "The Devil's Tomb," you have none. No scares, no tension, nothing. None of the actors look like specially trained soldiers. None of them seem really interested in what their characters are doing.

Ray Winstone, Ron Pearlman and Bill Moseley appear as support, and the veteran actors' performances are decent. Sadly, their roles are not big. As to Cuba Gooding Jr. he is not bad. "The Devil's Tomb" marks the directorial debut of the actor Jason Connery, but he is not ready for the job. Perhaps someone like Paul W.S. Anderson would have made a better film out of the clichéd script.
