76 minutes… thank you
Yes, there is lots of digging, but not nearly enough shots of the tomb loot. You might think that’s the point—the real treasures were the emotions we excavated along the way—but there’s not enough conflict here and using the onset of war is a cheap maneuver. Superficially: dialogue is bad and the Downton Abbey music will drive you bananas.
If you’re going to make an archaeology biopic, it has to be about a bitter ego-driven rivalry and/or someone making hoax skeletons out of various ape bones.
