Product Description

All three volumes of the treasure-seeking adventure mini-series. In 'The Lost Treasure of Ugarit' (2008), archaeologist and treasure seeker Jack Hunter (Ivan Sergei) travels to Syria to seek out priceless ancient artefacts buried by the Pharoahs, ending up battling with the Russian Mafia for the treasure and the glory. In 'The Quest for Akhenatens Tomb' (2008), Jack is informed that old flame and fellow archaeologist Lena Halstrom (Alaina Huffman) has discovered an obelisk in Egypt that may lead to the tomb of Akhenaton, the pharoah who raided Ugarit and stole its treasure along with the second piece of the Star of Heaven. After Jack deciphers secret symbols on the obelisk, he soon finds himself hunted by a group sworn to keep the location of the pharoah's last resting place secret. Finally, in 'The Star of Heaven' (2008), learning that his old adversary Albert Littman (Thure Riefenstein) has designs on the Eye of the Star of Heaven, Jack heads for Turkey, the last known location of the relic. Helped on his quest by local antiques dealer Nadia (Joanne Kelly), Jack soon manages to pick up the trail, only to be confronted by Littman's henchmen, leading to a deadly showdown in the lava fields of the Turkish mountains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jack Hunter trilogy 28 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
I can honestly say that while I was nervous about this choice of box set once I had received it I put them on (one after the other til all three seen) and when all were finished I was slightly annoyed there wasn't anymore to see, the entire trilogy of films were absolutely engrossing - they sucked me in to the point that I did not want to pause them to do anything - I would definitely recommend this box set to anyone who enjoys action and adventure and even some comedy along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars far better than expected - utterly engrossing 31 July 2011
Format:DVD
i approached this set with caution as it does clearly look like a rip off of indiana jones, but let me get this out of the way, it is pretty much nothing like indy...

the only real similarities are:

1.) in the first and third parts our hero 'Jack Hunter' wears a beige shirt and fedora
2.) Jack hunter is a treasure hunter
3.) he is trying to stop someone getting a mythical object that contains great power.

and that's pretty much where i'd say the similarities end. for me while watching the films i never felt like it was like indy. if anything it feels more like a more grown up version of something like 'national treasure'. at heart it is a classic adventure film where clues lead them all over turkey and syria.

of course, the films were made for televison on a budget nowhere near as large as hollywood films, but for me this meant that they didn't rely on constant special effects and explosions. thye also never try and do anything that they know they can't do in terms of budgetry constraints. they never aim too high and as such it works better for that very reason.

I also found the writing to be actually pretty good for tv films. usually it all feels so fake and forced. in this i personally felt that they pulled it off. I got drawn into the story and really enjoyed all three of the films. i also felt that the ending to the final film was perfect for what had come before.

all of the actors involved perform brillinatly and even the 'annoying' sidekick these films always seem to feature, isn't that annoying.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this series of films to anyone who enjoys adevture films with a little bit of thinking involved.

BTW: it was far, far superior to the fourth indiana jones film in my view. at least in this series they don't blow up a fridge with a nuclear explosion and there are no cgi monkeys!

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice bit of fun! 25 July 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
As there isn't a review for this box set, I thought I'd write a little something. The whole series is quite good, it contains three 'films' on three separate DVDs. I wasn't expecting much (as no-one can do Indiana Jones like Harrison Ford!) but thankfully, Jack Hunter is a pleasurable watch in his own right. There are some similarities to Indiana, but if you enjoy a little 'cheesy/cliche' type characters this won't offend you. The films are great for a Sunday afternoon and wonderful for anyone who enjoys Indiana type movies, or Egypt stories.
If you're stuck for a gift or want something fast-paced and intriguing then I'd recommend this series. Have fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars Jack Hunter Review 3 Feb 2012

It was typical of the genre. The Harrison Ford series was more exciting, but I still really enjoyed this Trilogy. Ivan Sergei was good in his role as was his woman companion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why were they made? 26 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Did somebody decide to make a cheap television version of Indiana Jones for people who are too lazy to go the cinema?
These films are simply terrible. Rambling narrative, atrocious acting and generally as boring as a et weekend at the seaside.
It simply isn't possible to make a low budget story about a treasure hunter. At least not with the lacl of imagination and poor actors in this series. Complete waste of money

If you like Indiana Jones you will like this. The actor who plays Jack Hunter is Ivan Sergel. Ivan takes the part to the limits.

... this is not one of those things. Made-for-TV movie that fails on every front. I thought this would be mindless fun. It was just mindless.

Poor mans Indiana Jones. Not the greatest series, but the kids will enjoy it. Also the adults who want something easy to watch after a night out.

I read the other reviews available at the time and, generally, they were positive. That's normally enough for me because, as a rule, I don't disagree with the consensus view. Read more
