Описание: Продолжение фильма "Роман с камнем". На этот раз искатель приключений Джек Колтон (Даглас) и писательница Джоан Уайлдер (Тернер) гоняются за "Жемчужиной Нила" - самым драгоценным камнем во всей Африке. (Иванов М.)
Рецензии: "The Jewel of the Nile" is an attempt to reproduce the classic "Raiders of the Lost Ark", with two twists. The first, they introduce a real romance. But I wasn't impressed with the acting by Kathleen Turner, and I'm not into romance novels. Also, the action is a little campy, unlike in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" where they clearly went out of their way to make the movie feel gritty and immersive, as if it had really taken place in historical distant lands.
These things sap the film and as action movie just get bigger and badder I think it's showing its age. "Romancing the Stone", the prequel, was better.
Who should see this film:
-- Action movie buffs with nothing better to do on a rainy day, and only if you're trying to rent something for two, and your SO wants some kind of romance. But try "Crocodile Dundee" first, which is still a classic. Or "Six Days Seven Nights".
-- Romance lovers, I don't mean romance / comedy, I mean people (primarily women) who actually read romance novels
I'll give "The Jewel of the Nile" an aging 5 out of 10.
