Gene Hackman grumbles expertly as a combat-weary Foreign Legion major ordered to lead his men into the Sahara on an archeological treasure hunt after World War I.

Her porcelain perfection cuts like a Chanel ad through the dusty haze. Except for the mélange of accents, the heroic and romantic mesh nicely. (PG)
