Hubby and I went to see "Sahara" this afternoon. The 1 p.m. matinee was
pretty much full for our little valley community. The audience seemed to be
really pulled into the movie and enjoyed it.
We went to see the movie not to compare it with his book, but to see if the
essence of Cussler's adventurous story was pulled off.
We were impressed. A tremendous action movie I think will get 2 thumbs up.
The cast did a good job, but I was disappointed in their personal interviews
on the tv talk shows over the last two weeks because I don't recall any of
them discussing who wrote the story -- Clive Cussler. But, maybe they were
gagged from doing so because of the pending law suit. I liked the 'touches
of Cussler that were identifiable throughout the movie -- his humor, his
vintage car at the end of the movie reminded me of his photos on the back of
his book jackets. We think that the industry did good on "Sahara" and
should bring a little joy to the 'grumpy ol' guy!!' LOL (Cussler is dear
to our hearts!)
