Mojin: The Lost Legend (2015 aka The Ghouls/Well Go USA Blu-ray)

Picture: A Sound: B Extras: B Film: A-

Mojin - treasure hunters who seek ancient treasure/gold, usually surrounded by ancient (but still lethal) booby traps. A team of Mojin are sent into ancient tomb in China for the treasure of a lifetime, a legendary relic said with the power to resurrect/give eternal life. Problem is, no one has ever returned and it is guarded by the undead and numerous traps which is on full display in Wuershan's Mojin: The Lost Legend (2015 aka The Ghouls).

Hu, Wang and Shirley are treasure hunters (arguably grave robbers); together they are know as the 'Mojin'. They dive into ancient tombs seeking untold treasures and are experts in finding and disarming traps (and living to tell about it). 20 years ago, Hu and Wang barely escaped with their lives after discovering an secret abandoned military base, thought to be buried forever, their past comes back to haunt them when Wang is hired by a company to find the treasure. Hu and Shirley returns to rescue Wang (grudgingly) only to find if any of them are to escape they will all have to work together.

This movie was like Indian Jones meets Tomb Raider mixed with Jackie Chan, as an evil cult goes after a supernatural treasure with Chinese martial arts/shenanigans. It was visually mind-blowing with special effects and CGI in a underground tomb as large as 'Mines of Moria' from Lord of the Rings. Then it offers much more and we'll stop while were ahead for you to see for yourself.

The amazing 1080p digital High Definition image switches from 1.85 X 1 to 2.35 X 1, but that is never a major issue as it holds its superior playback performance throughout, while the lossless Mandarin DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 mix has its moments and a consistent soundfield throughout, even if the image and as the image impresses that much more. Extras include a Behind The Scenes featurette, interviews with actors and trailers.
