Action Adventure Movies That Ignite Your Blood To Go Discover Things!


When the team is prepping for another expedition, I tend to watch my favorite slew of adventure movies to get in the mood. Sometimes, watching these reminds us there are still secrets in the world, still hidden treasures, ancient finds. In fact, I will be so bold as to say, less has been uncovered than is out there to still be discovered.

Here's some of my favorite Action Adventure films to ignite the discoverer in me.

A timid anthropologist finds herself being guided by a rebel and a rogue to a supposed pyramid temple only spoken of in legends. The curse upon the pharaoh, however, puts a kink in things.
