  • Sydney and Nigel try to find an Aztec statue.

    6.5
    A local guide (Carlos) helps Sydney and Nigel avoid local guerrillas in Central America - as they move towards a ruined Aztec building. Inside it, they avoid some traps, solve the clues to a cave's entrance and find a box with an ancient Aztec statue. They leave with the box but Carlos turns on them with a gun and runs off with the box. He contacts his friends - the guerrillas - about his treasure but he touches the statue and dies. Sydney and Nigel track him down, take back the box and run for the train. On it, their box is stolen once again - and once again the thief dies by touching the statue. With guerillas surrounding them, they leave the train and Sydney convinces Nigel that they need to return the relic before anyone else dies. They get back to the temple (with Nigel suffering from various afflictions) but another guerrilla tracks them down. He touches the statue and dies. Sydney hurriedly returns the box and defaces the cave's entrance to stop others from finding the relic.



    This story is unusual in that Sydney decides the relic is better off left in its original position. There is a lot of running around in the jungle - avoiding guerrillas - which is exciting. But there is also some slapstick humour - mainly by Nigel - which seems to be used to pad the story out. In addition, there are various elements of the story that can be found in the first 'Indiana Jones' movie.moreless
