OK then where to begin:

Originality - 6 - Well it felt like an indi movie, and it was obviously supposed to, but you managed to get a unique story out of it!
Plot/Story - 4 - Not quite sure what that story was ... the nazis in america steal a mummy and they end up in egypt ... it was a little confused lol, but a good idea, maybe should have had it play out somewhere closer to germany, maybe like Romania or Poland, could have made it a little more believable at the start!
Dialogue - 7 - due to trying to get both languages in it did make some of the subs go by to fast, but the content was good! :)
Editing - 8 - It felt like an indi movie, and that is the best praise you could get!
"wow factor" - 4 - I found parts of it just didn't make sense, and overall it just didn't peak my interest, but that is not to say i can't appreciate it, and the indi feel definatley makes this a must for indiana jones fans! :)

Overall - 29 - 3* - A good solid movie, some flaws but over all not bad!:)

Not bad, agree with the flaws mentioned by other reviewers but still, not bad.
Kept up a pretty good pace and showed some imagination in getting the story to work.
Enough good work done for me to round up.

Good Idea!

I really liked the Indiana Jones feel of that movie, but the story was pretty thin.
I never got why the Nazi's wanted that Mummy.

Send in the critics:
-Pelase put a description to your movie, I was about to skip it when I spotted Mystic's review, that drew me in.
-Subtitle timing was to fast to follow the dialogue!

The Good:
- I loved the idea to use was that Dutch? and English Subs, 'twas quite entertaining.
- The World map was nicely done, good thinking!

Just a note may wanna get rid of the mumbling.And i noticed the shadow on static 3 shot on ur intro there is way to get rid of it.PM me i can get it for you,unless you got it now :)

Didn't quite get the storyline, but the scenes were great. Next time have a backstory before rushing into the action.

Solid little action/adventure title. I liked the use of the map. many of the criticism I have were pointed out by previous reviewers. The double subtitles while couteous were distracting. Could definelty have taken advatage of tighter editing. As far as the story, a cliched but in the end the positives far outway the negatives.

That was a very impressive attempt. Now I'm not well placed to say annything about long movies, but it could have been shorter with some faster editing. For instance, when the main character regains conciousness in the library, that took a long time and was totaly inconsistent with the fast paced action music. Good story, though, nice intro (although I would prefer matching credit backdrops) The double subtitles were a nice touch but also distracting (I'm Flemish, I could read them) and they are usually on differend lines. Good characters, nice music (please turn off the mumblings). The travel route on the map was a great idea and well done. Some cool action to finish with. And lot's of good scenes as well (I've never seen that hidden passage in the library before). Very well done. Ik kijk al uit naar de volgende :)

This was a very good action movie, very much in keeping with the 'indy' films.
Some great editing, set use and duel subtitles in english and Dutch/German(?)...forgive my ignorance.

The characters were well defined and the story, although not too original, was very well executed.
I was torn between a 4 and a 5 on this one...I think the choice of music, which worked really well with the movie bumps it to a 5.
Great work:-)

Not too bad of a job over all, but needs alot of editing for length, and subtitle/sound being out of synch. Lots of pointless shots, scenes being too long unnessiarly, and the opening credits were almost a minute long just by itself. But the story was very good and some scenes were brilliantly shot!

Very nice adventure movie. Sometimes editing and story are not very clear and some scenes are a little long, but as it has it's weaker points, this movie also has some great moments...
I really had a good time watching it.
Also, personnally I would not put subtitles in two languages, it's really confusing, even if you understand both.
Nice job! ;)

You should take away the lionhead supplied opening credits when you are doing your own. I would also toggle the mumbling off during the flick. You ran the subtitles a little quick sometimes, but I understand why. Doing them in both German and English was nice though. The sound effects were a little off from time to time. You had some nice custom shots in this film. Bonus for that. The story was done well. Too many flaws for a 5 Star but a good movie, none the less.
