Marine life planetwide is dying off in staggering proportions, and if adventurer Dirk Pitt can't find the solution--ALL life is in danger! So what's he doing looking for the answer in the middle of the Sahara desert? Just trust him. Good cast in a movie that was done better last summer as Flight Of The Phoenix.
- Commentary by Director Breck Eisner and Actor/Executive Producer Matthew McConaughey
- Three featurettes
- Deleted Scenes (with optional audio commentary)

As with anything Cussler does don't take it too seriously, just enjoy the ride, it's worth it.
The opening sequence with the ironclad CSS Texas escaping Charleston harbor under attack is absolutely fabulous, the movie is worth watching just for that.
My biggest gripe has nothing to do with the movie itself, it's about everything that went on around it. Apparantly there was a HUGE legal kerfuffle over it and it's not likely any more Cussler books will be made into movies anytime soon, which is a real shame.
In the present, two oceanographers, named Dirk and Al, obsess about finding her. Following the recovery of an ancient African artifact off the coast of Nigeria, they find a clue that points to the country of Mali. At the same time, a World Health Organization doctor, named Eva, suspects the source of a potential plague is in Mali. Together, they motor up river to Mali where their destinies will intertwine. Unfortunately, the forces of Mali's Warlord General and the Tuareg fighters are engaged in a Civil War.
The most fun scene is a deleted scene: 'The Long Kiss'. Watch Al's discomfort as Dirk and Eva are in a major lip-lock.
