Sahara

This movie involves a retired admiral, an evil African dictator, WHO doctors, and an industrialist who believes in money first. The dictator is selling the industrialist toxic waste, which then goes into a buried river, causing a plague in Africa. The WHO doctors are trying to find out where it comes from and stop it, and get help from the admiral and his crew. Mostly his crew. There's also a very old car and a Civil War battleship.

While there was a lot of running and fighting, this movie is a really good example of how we will never be able to help the starving Africans as long as their governments are corrupt. I liked it; I had to back up a couple times to see something I missed while beading.
