No cinematic drought after all
It had been proposed by some that the only reason Eisner Jr. (Breck)
was allowed to make this film was his relationship with Eisner Sr.
(Michael). While there is no proof for such an argument either way,
Breck has proved to be not much worse than other directors. In fact he
did better than most and worse than some. Sahara is best described as a
typical entertaining adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones or perhaps
National Treasure. It has a tough good guy (McConaughey), a funny
sidekick (Zane) and admirable eye-candy (Cruz). Now I admit that most
things are quite shallow, but if you mix all of the above mentioned
ingredients with a decent story, good action sequences and throw in the
fact that there isn't one nanosecond of corniness in this movie, you
inevitably end up with a crowd pleasing blockbuster.
