Disappointing
5 May 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In times of turbulence and confusion in Egypt, an American team of archaeologists is digging a three-side pyramid in the desert. The engineer Zahir (Amir K) sends his robot to explore the interior while the archaeologists Nora (Ashley Hinshaw) and her father Holden (Denis O'Hare); the video producer Sunni (Christa Nicola); and the cameraman Fitzie (James Buckley) record and analyze the image. However they have to leave the site due to the political instability but out of blue, the expensive robot vanishes inside the pyramid. Amir K convinces Corporal Shadid (Faycal Attougui) to give two hours for them to seek out the robot. When they are in the interior, the floor collapses and they fall 30 m down. Soon they learn that the place is a maze full of traps and a creature is hunting them down. Will they succeed to escape?

"The Pyramid" is a disappointing horror movie. The story is silly and unoriginal and does not hold the attention of the viewer. The performances are not convincing but acceptable, but the plot fails since the characters are not well developed and non-likable. The lighting and camera are very poor. The special effects are reasonable for a low- budget movie. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Pirâmide" ("The Pyramid")
