  1. The book was so so good and the movie did not live up. The main reason Clive Cussler would not let any more of his books be made into films after this. There was also a lawsuit (which he lost) if I remember correctly.

  2. I don’t mind it. It’s kinda fun and McConaughey and Zahn are good together and have chemistry. I don’t care that Zahn is nothing like Al Giordino in the books.

    Most of the Cussler novels are pretty trashy, it’s not like they’re intricately plotted thrillers. They’re pulpy airport novels, which is exactly what this film is.

    Considering the other Dirk Pitt film to make it to the screen was Raise the Titanic, this at least has some pace and is fun.

  3. Not only one of the biggest failures.. Potentially it ruined one of the biggest movie franchises in history. Cussler has a whole bunch of books that would adapt really well to film, and this failure stopped that dead.

    I think that if done right, this could have been on parallel with the success of the Bond franchise
