I started watching this movie last night called The Adventurer from 2013. It has a pretty damn good cast with Jurassic Park's Sam Neill as the villain, Fantastic Four's Ioan Gruffudd in a supporting role, Lena Headey in the lead actress role and in the lead role is the great Michael Sheen in an Indiana Jones type character. The movie felt like it was going for an Indiana Jones/Brendan Fraser The Mummy thing, and most of the time the production value felt surprisingly high (kind of shocked at first I hadn't even heard of this movie before). I didn't finish it though. At times the production value felt a tad cheap unfortunately, the story wasn't very well laid out (or very interesting) and I hate to say it but Michael Sheen just didn't seem right for the lead role. He didn't really jump off the screen with charm, presence and charisma like I think the character was supposed to. Oddly enough I think an actor of less dramatic skill actually would've been a better choice for the lead role, someone like Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim, Sons of Anarchy) or something. Just goes to show you that the most skilled actor isn't necessarily the *right* actor for the role. All in all the movie just felt pretty bland. The potential was there, and it seemed the budget and technical skill was there, but it just didn't come together at all.
