The film clocks in at under two hours, but the last 20 minutes feel like 40. Full Review

Washington Post
McConaughey remains more buffed than compelling. He's not helped by a two-hour convolution of episodes that are too busy imitating other, better movies. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Takes the action/adventure story to new heights of preposterousness. In a way, that's not a bad thing, since it allows a certain level of guilty enjoyment. Full Review
Janice Page
Boston Globe
In the end, the thing that Cussler's fans will probably object to most is the nonsensical way Sahara manhandles his story. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
McConaughey is usually a welcome presence, but here, he looks like making the movie was getting in the way of his exciting African adventure. Full Review
