Sahara, based on Clive Cussler’s blockbuster
novel, stars Matthew McConaughey as Cussler’s seafaring
hero, Dirk Pitt. Steve Zahn co-stars as Dirk’s sarcastic,
lovable sidekick, All Giordino. While hunting for a lost Confederate
ironclad ship in West Africa, Dirk and Al are forced to forego
their treasure hunt when a United Nations doctor, played by Penelope
Cruz, runs afoul of an evil African warlord and his slick French
business partner. The doctor has found that the two villains are
running a solar energy plant that’s spewing chemical waste
into the Niger River, causing a plague that may get out of control.
Sahara is a slam-bang, hugely entertaining action flick
that gives new meaning to the term high energy. It is also funny,
smart and exhilarating. Matthew McConaughey and Steve Zahn make
the perfect team, and Penelope Cruz has never been more appealing.
First-time director Breck Eisner does a fabulous job. Despite
some light foul language, one strong profanity and plenty of action
violence, Sahara is a worthwhile entertainment with a
crazy, but compassionate hero who is willing to help others, even
if it means risking his own life and foregoing the treasure. Sahara
