6. Lost City Raiders: C+

This Direct to DVD film starring James Brolin and Ian Somerhalder is essentially Waterworld meets Indiana Jones with a dose of DaVinci Code.
The world has succumbed to global warming leaving many treasures now hundreds of feet below the water in the once glorious cities of the past. Our crew, led by Brolin's, father figure Jake Kubiak hunts for treasure with his two sons. Unbeknownst to his sons Jake has a deal with the "New Vatican" to find an ancient scepter that allegedly has the power to reverse the floodwaters of the world. I give them points for putting together an above average story but the action sequences using the 'slo mo' technique didn't work. The choreography on the fight scenes was bad. The eye candy was nice at least.
