I saw Sahara tonight, the new movie with Penelope Cruz and Matthew McConaughey. I was not that excited going in but came out surprised at how good the movie actually was.
The cinematography was surprisingly solid; much more thoughtful than the typical big budget adventure. The fact it was filmed in Africa really came through.
The cast worked really well together, the chemistry was great. The acting was just far enough beyond reality to be entertaining, but still with-in the realm of reality.
The same can be said about the action scenes they were entertaining, but not over the top give me a break crazy.
If you are bored go see this movie. I liked it better than Sin City, but SC was a much more ambitious, click-ish film which I can get annoyed of. Sahara on the other hand is just plain enjoyable.
