The Pyramid (2014) Review:

This the first movie directed by Gregory Levasseur, best known for writing Hills Have Eyes (remake) and High Tension. Surprisingly, the problem here is really not the directing, which is OK, but really the writing, which is as predictable and as insipid as any Hollywood action movie.

The theme, archeologists exploring a pyramid, is nothing new. I normally enjoy movies where people are trapped somewhere, especially is there are traps everywhere. But here the traps are just too classic – like a parody of pyramid story: the sand trap, the hole filled with spikes, the floor collapsing… can’t they invent at least one new one?

Fortunately, the movie is not just about traps and it has got a couple of monsters in it. Having monsters inspired by ancient Egyptian gods is a great idea, but why use this crappy piece of CGI… really? It looks soooo bad, my eyes were bleeding. Even the CGI monster in Deep Rising back in 1998 looked better.

To this, you can add any incoherences in the way the characters react, a linear storyline and tons of cheesy scenes, and you get an idea of how uninteresting The Pyramid is.
