I don’t get the hype behind this movie - The book was bad - Like real bad. I’ll admit I liked about the first 1/4th of it, there felt like there was some real development going on and interesting plots being built up trying to find the first key. . .But after that point?. . .It all fell to shit.

The entire book’s plot device was “but all treasure hunters mastered this particular skill years ago so the puzzle was easy”. . Literally every time a challenge was presented this was what was said.

The book would have been served better as a trilogy or a 4 book series with more care taken to build up the premise and plot and add some actual development and tension.
