Full Synopsis

No one knew if the fabled tomb existed. Those who have searched for it never returned. It’s been said that whoever finds it will become the richest soul on the face of the earth—some say, the most cursed. Now, one brave man has been hired to find out what is true, what is myth, and what is really buried in the darkness of King Solomon’s Mines.

Renowned safari hunter Allan Quatermain (Golden Globe nominee Patrick Swayze, Ghost) has given up the life of an adventurer, vowing to leave the natural splendour of Africa to its own people—and leave its destruction to the likes of his mercenary former partner, Bruce McNabb (Gavin Hood, American Kickboxer). But Quatermain can’t live on his principles alone. His acceptance of a handsome offer from beautiful Elizabeth Anderson (Alison Doody, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) and her friend Captain Good (Roy Marsden, Vanity Fair), promises to be an expedition of another sort—find the desperate woman’s missing father who disappeared in Africa while searching for the infamous King Solomon’s Mines. Quatermain knows the legend well, and he knows that no living soul who dared to seek out the world’s greatest treasure, ever returned alive. But for him and his game comrade of the jungle, Sir Henry (Ian Roberts, The Power of One), no challenge is too great or too dangerous.

In possession of an invaluable map, and led by Umbopa (Sidede Onyulo, Nowhere in Africa), a regal and equally invaluable native with his own secret agenda, these five brave fortune hunters embark on their rescue mission. But news of the expedition has reached McNabb, who prepares for his own journey into the heart of darkness—to clandestinely follow the explorers to the ends of the continent, secure the riches for himself, and kill whomever stands in his way, including Quatermain, the target of his vengeance. Now, into the Sahara’s treacherous Veil of Sand, across the unknown reaches of the mysterious Sitandra’s Kraal, through the sacrificial rituals of a fearsome native God, the adventure of a lifetime begins. Where it ends could be the most savage trap of all—the forbidden, impenetrable, and inescapable King Solomon’s Mines.
