This movie is very fun and one that I can watch more than once or twice. Very adventurous where the main character is a historic treasure hunter.

This is is awful !
I got this NYPL disc home and put this movie in the DVD player...and the screen says: "NOT FORMATTED FOR THIS REGION" !!?? ( Even though it states "Region #1", on the DVD jacket !!?)

I have watched a thousand other New York Public Library DVDs on my Panasonic Region 1 DVD Player,.. but this one makes it over 32 TIMES that a film has come up as "NOT FORMATTED..." etc. !
I waited a long time to get this highly recommended film.
I really wanted to see this movie.
And I know that ALL the NYPL copies of this title will have this same problem !!
WHY is the New York Public Library still buying DVD's that are "NOT FORMATTED.." to be viewed in this region ! ??

Has this ever happened to anyone else out there ?

Matthew McConaughey stars as explorer and adventurer Dirk Pitt in this adaptation of the best-selling novel by Clive Cussler. Pitt thinks he may have found both a fortune and the answer to a long-standing mystery when he discovers a rare coin in the waters of a river in West Africa. During the Civil War, an ironclad battleship with a valuable cargo went missing, and Pitt's theory is that the coin places the ship somewhere in the Sahara Desert. Pitt and his goofy sidekick, Al Giordino (Steve Zahn), set out to find it, but along the way they make the acquaintance of Dr. Eva Rojas (Penélope Cruz), a scientist and physician who is trying to determine the source of a strange and deadly disease sweeping the nation. As Eva joins Dirk and Al, they begin to wonder if the mysteries they're trying to uncover might be somehow linked.
