Jr. career has been a train wreck. Ron Perlman and Henry Rollins seem happy
to take any job. THE DEVIL’S TOMB is a horrible horror film. I didn’t enjoy this film at all. The plot is take
it or leave it. The amount of gore doesn’t make up for it. Cuba
is the head of an elite military unit assigned with a search and rescue mission to get one scientist (Ron Perlman) out of
an underground archeological site in the Middle East. What
follows is a series of events as the team succumbs to an ancient evil that takes out the team one by one. Ron Perlman barely shows up in the film and Henry Rollins is just being a tame Henry Rollins in his role
as a priest. If the script had more punch to it and ven more surprises to it,
THE DEVIL’S TOMB might have been good. Otherwise, it is another crappy
film in the Fallen Angels genre.
scenes basically amount to extended scenes with extra stuff not in the final film. The
outtakes reel is humorless while BENEATH THE DESERT: BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE DEVIL’S TOMB is a making-of featurette
that features interviews with cast and crew in addition to on-location and on-set production footage. Then there is an audio commentary with Director Jason Connery and Actor Cuba Gooding Jr.
FINAL ANALYSIS: THE DEVIL’S TOMB is a bust. It features a group of decent
actors only to be undermined by the poor script.
