About the Movie

Master explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) takes on the adventure of his life when he embarks on a treasure hunt through some of the most dangerous regions of North Africa. Searching for whal locals call "The Ship of Death", a long lost Civil War battleship filled with coins, Pitt and his wisecracking sidekick (Steve Zahn) use their wits and clever heroics to help Doctor Eva Rojas (Penelope Cruz) who believes the ship may be linked to mysterious deaths in the very same area.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Sahara is many things, but it is not a movie. It is the skull-splitting cacophony of 21 producers and four screenwriters (that we know about, anyway) standing in the same room shouting into their cell phones. – Jessica Winter, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Whatever it lacks in substance it makes up for in gloss, humor and thrills, and a good time should be had by all. – Paul Clinton (,, Apr 23, 2005

Rotten: This one has everything: stereotyped characters, shaky camera work, absurdly inappropriate pop songs on the soundtrack, a confused tone, misplaced zaniness and a nonsensical story. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Good-natured enough to entertain here and there, but that otherwise loses its way long before the characters complete their implausible quest. – Janice Page, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010
