Morena Baccarin and Adam Baldwin, yay! Um... wait.... that CGI is really terrible. Whoa, Egyptian curse! But the CGI is just TERRIBLE. And the sets are awful. And it's all low-budget, but well-lit. That's a bad, bad combo. Deliberately bad? I mean, honestly, this is soooo awful, why on earth would anyone make it this way unless it was on *purpose*?

This movie is frankly terrible beyond words. On the other hand, it's chock full of cliches and Hollywood mythology and looks like it was excellent fun to make. This might be the sort of bad little gem that actors put on at parties to laugh over; it looks like something deliberately done for schlock effect.

I kind of like it. I know! It sucks. But... I still sort of like it anyways.

This is a great movie if you like Egyptian type movies. I really like this movie. I love the characters and the storyline and how it goes back to when his grandfather was a child and the story about the movie set being cursed back when the grandfather was a child and there were unexplained accidents happening on the set during the making of a Hollywood movie. The grandson who was in the military is back home from his tour and Iraq, takes his grandfather out on a dig and the grandfather is looking for his buried time capsule he buried when he was a boy. Which he finds among other things. During the Dig things start happening to the people on the Dig and something is released out of the tomb they discover. Great Movie! This is a must-see movie!!!

In 1923 Cecil B. DeMille filmed "The Ten Commandments" at Nipomo Dunes in California. There he buried the film set after making the picture.

This film has a Hallmark feel to it and does not take too much time to make CGI look real.

With all the negatives it is still fun to pass the time with if you like all the sci-fi quickie movies where evil pops up mostly in desert scenes.

Wow, Morena Baccarin, also Alan's girlfriend from Two and a half men in the beginning of movie with Morena's ex Victor Webster, where was Charlie Sheen? This movie was winning all the way. Morena Baccarin, what a beautiful Queen V she is! Adam Baldwin was too funny, George Kennedy was very convincing in his role too. Sands of Oblivion was better than I expected it to be, true the CGI was really not so good, but the storyline was imaginative. Totally unbelievable, but the Masons have actually always had their noses in history as long as they have been around, that part is believable. Morena Baccarin,...no need to act-just be beautiful, worth buying Sands just to see her! Someone spent way too much money making this movie, but I will watch it over & over just to see Morena, never realized how lovely she is by watching "V", although she is quite stunning there too. Well my 2¢ worth of review. Watch it!

You like this kind of topic?, go and watch Stargate instead. This is a slow, monotone and boring movie with no action, the movie in the movie would have made more sense if it had been filmed in Egypt.

I would have given it 1star, but Morena Baccarin almost makes it watchable.
If you have a creepy, unnatural attraction to Morena its worth it, otherwise; Skip It!

It's like some of the older mummy movies. Handsome hero, Beautiful girl, and of course a mummy. Can't beat it.

Adam Baldwin and George Kennedy (from the Airpirt movies). History and Science Fiction combine to sweep the sand into shape. Absolutely one of my favorite Syfy movies.
