Voila! Finally, the Sahara
script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the movie starring
Matthew McConaughey, Penelope Cruz, Steve Zahn, etc. This script is a transcript that was painstakingly
transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Sahara. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally
tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to
drop me a line. You won't
hurt my feelings. Honest.
RICHMOND, VIRGINIA 1850
THE END OF THE CIVIL WAR
THE LAST IRONCLAD SHIP TO
RUN THE UNION BLOCKADE
- Sorry captain.
- It's all right. Just keep moving.
That's the future in your hands.
- Double goes ready, captain.
You better take us in the channel.
Ahead now make revolutions per five nods.
- Aim 150 yards.
- 150 yards! We're starting!
- All ahead full!
- Right captain.
- Stop engines.
Seize firing! Seize firing!
Hold the gun force!
Seize fire! Hold still!
Mrs. Nwokolo, Eva Rojas
World Help Organisation.
- This is doctor Hopper.
- Hello, nice to meet you.
Sorry about the dark,
the light hurts his eyes.
- Thank you.
- What's his name?
- Azeikiwey, most call him Kiwey.
- Hi, Kiwey. My name is Eva.
I need to look at you, okay?
- How long has he been sick?
- For two days.
- Has he travelled anywhere recently?
- He was in Mali last week. With his father.
- Where's his father now?
- He's at the lighthouse. That's where he works.
Blood pressure over .
What are those?
It's okay. It's all right,
it's gonna be over.
It's okay, it's okay Kiwey. It's okay.
- Are you all right?
- Mali, just like the others.
Yeah, I know.
- This is an outbreak, Frank.
- We have six cases. That's not enough.
Oh, how many do we need?
Sixty? Six thousand?
Where does it start tomorrow?
We have to find the cure Frank.
You want to go to Mali.
It's not gonna happen. WHO isn't
gonna lose anymore staff to a civil war.
- Here, finish your report.
- Good. Just in time for the autopsy.
I'll do what I can do.
I'll represent to the board.
Maybe they'll listen this time.
- We still need blood samples from his father.
- I'll find the father.
You have no business being here!
Quick! Get her bag!
Are you okay?
Hey! Pick that off!
What are you doing?
All right guys, come on!
Quit screwing around! Come on!
All right, stop. Hold it there!
Hey hold this! Come on, grab it!
Give me a wrench, I need a wrench.
Wrench! Anybody there?
All right, I need your help.
Go ahead, thank you.
All right, we're good!
- Al Giordino.
- Eva. Eva Rojas.
- Nice work.
- Thank you.
All right! Turn it on! Go now!
Hi. How are you,
- Yes, thank you.
- I'm Rudi.
- Sorry, where are we?
- This is the Martha M, it's a NUMA boat.
Ship. We didn't know who you were,
so we kinda patch your throat.
Rudi, I've been waiting
two months for this moment.
- Don't mess it up for me by letting him drown.
- Yes, admiral.
Five, counting four, three, two, one!
Ladies and gentlemen!
May I introduce to you
after year engagement on
the bottom of the ocean!
King! The King!
Nice job, everyone!
- Ten ton ready to winch has arrived.
- You know, you're thinking of Batine since .
Where's your straiten since ?
Got to check it up either one of.
The king meets the people
at the museum in five hours!
- Don't worry, sir. We'll be there!
- We'll be there!
You better be.
- Hey! Look who's on her feet!
- Thanks to you I guess.
You just lose your bag.
- I did lose my bag.
- In other words dying for a help?
- Well, that's a tough question.
- What's that you're dying for?
Hey Dirk, get your butt up here, so we could
scrape some of the crap off this thing.
Ladies, get Mr. Batine unhooked.
Clean him up. We got a party to go to.
- Jim Sandecker.
- Eva Rojas. I'm with the WHO.
You look like you could use a cup of coffee.
Hey, I need your help.
- Just better not be like last time.
- Is it left over right? Or is it right over left?
Can't remember, it's driving me nuts!
There's something about the rabbit.
Going around the tree or something.
I'll be there in an hour.
- What? Dirk?
- That was Oshodi.
He thinks he may have found something.
- Oh, that's great. That is fantastic!
- Thank you very much.
No, no. Fantastic for me. I can't wait
to tell Sandecker that you're not
gonna be at the museum tonight,
because one of your contacts
from the Nigerian underworld
has found evidence of a civil war
ironclad ship racked in a...
- Storm of Africa.
- Storm of Africa.
Yeah, right. That's what
you're talking about, right?
Yeah, Sandecker's gonna freak!
- I'll be there. He'll turn all red.
- Fox chase the rabbit around the tree
and down the hole.
That's how the tie works.
Don't you worry, I'll be there.
Thank you, thank you very much.
First I'd like to thank the Lagos museum
for this magnificent reception.
I would also like to thank our primary
benefactor on this project, Yves Massarde.
We are NUMA. The national
underwater and marine agency.
And this, ladies and gentlemen is what we do.
- Where is he?
- He's not at the buffet.
- Damn it.
- You want the habab?
With the help of museums,
with the help of governments
private organisations like ours can work
in partnership to make sure that history,
history that has been lost to the tides of time
can be returned to its people. Thank you.
Thank you so much,
have a lovely evening.
- Do you have a CD player on that ship of yours?
- Yes, the same one I bought from you last month.
I have a wonderful piece. Straight
from the Iraki National Museum.
Don't show me things like that
Oshodi, we're not that friendly.
A very special piece. The one
I spoke to you about.
It breaks my heart just to show it to you.
Where did you get this?
Hush please. We are not that friendly.
It's a great party.
- Thank you for inviting us, admiral.
- The pleasure is mine.
Yves, this is the woman I was
telling you about. Doctor Eva Rojas.
I'm delighted to meet your
greetings, I'm Yves Massarde.
Nice to meet you.
This is doctor Frank Hopper.
- How do you do?
- How are you doing?
Yves does a lot of business
in Africa. Some even in Mali.
Will you excuse me.
I understand you believe there's some
sort of plague coming out of the Mali?
- We don't like to say plague.
- What do you think it is then?
A plague. So you do business in Mali?
Do you know anyone then who could help us
by pressuring the WHO to send a team?
Well you see, much of Mali
is controlled by a war-lord.
- Do you know him?
He used to be a colonel in the Malian army
and he gave himself an upgrade
that he shall be the president.
- He's the man who put the war back into war-lord.
- And he controls the country?
Half of it. And the other half no one controls,
I don't know which is worse.
And I have to warn you it is very
dangerous to foreigners right now.
- I would say it's probably more dangerous for locals.
- Yes, but your death would be very bad in the papers.
So does the word plague.
All right, I will call some people but
at the end of the day I'm just
a businessman, so be patient.
Oh yes, she's good at that.
- He's not gonna help us. It was a waste of time.
- He catches partner in the middle of the Mali and civil war.
He would crawl to make money.
- Admiral, have you ever seen a confederate gold dollar?
- Oh dear God, don't start this again.
Of course not, because the
Confederacy never made a gold dollar.
- The mid was destroyed at the end of the war.
- I beg you on my hands and knees, don't.
But not before Jefferson Davis
had five samples made.
He gave four of those samples to his top generals,
- Lee, Stonewall, Jackson, Jebstore and Johnson.
- Every time we come to Africa outcomes that
stupid ship model, outcomed the old port generals.
- We're leaving for Australia tomorrow.
- Four of those samples have been found.
But the fifth never was.
That one was given to an old family friend of Davis,
a brilliant young sea captain named Mason Tombs.
Captain of the CSS ironclad Texas.
- How did you get this?
- Tried to go to Oshodi.
He got it from a man named Diguay,
but the important thing is
that Diguay found this in Labbezanga, Mali.
- Is he dead collector of coins?
- And that coin in the Texas from the Niger river.
That's impossible. An ironclad
couldn't make it with their draft.
Let me take the clipper to the
Labbezanga and look around.
- You can't have my boat, Dirk.
- Three days, admiral.
Just three days. Imagine.
All right, if I shake out,
you'll never hear another word about this.
You got hours.
Not a nano second more. You fellows
just bought yourself a boat trip.
You're a gentlemen, admiral I don't
care what they say about you!
You got a bottle? Says we never find it.
- Make it a case.
- All right, sure.
Yo! Buenas dias.
- You're late.
- Excuse me?
- I was told an o'clock departure.
- I never said o'clock.
- I said .
- It's after .
- You said .
- I talked to Sandecker.
- He said to give him a call if we get any problems.
- Problems with what?
- He wants you to take us up the river to Mali.
- Taking you to Mali.
- Wait. There's been an outbreak in Mali.
- You're going to become an epidemic.
- And you wanna hit your ride, doctor?
- What, WHO's making bugetary cutbacks?
- Please, it's important.
- You guys get enough cure?
- Probably not.
- Small boat. No privacy.
- I'm not shy.
- What do you call home?
- I have a house in Monterrey, but I've never been.
- Monterrey, it's great diving in Monterrey.
- It's all you ever think about? Diving?
No. Sometimes I think about Petracola Fularatormus.
- The angel wing clam.
This river is the only place
on the earth they are found.
Underwater they glove in the dark.
Now the amazing this that modern
science cannot explain why.
It must be a reason.
Tell you my theory is that they do because they can.
Dirk! That's it, let's go!
Angel wings. You ever be
a pleasant woman like that.
This is the center of the cluster. Here, Assalome.
- That's where we have to go.
- Right in the middle of Kazim's civil war.
Hey, you ever been after marlins, doctor?
- No, not the marlin story again.
- pounds. Five and a half hours in a fighting cheer.
- I thought it was pounds.
- Hey, where did you catch that Dirk,
- I can't remember anything at all.
- How long you guys been together?
Since kindergarten, college, Navy, NUMA.
Poor guy's always been in my shadow.
Always the housemade never the out, right?
Nice, doc. I toll in your way.
Now watch chief.
Your friend Al told me all about
your captain Tombs and his boat.
- Oh he did, did he?
- He also said ironclads were not made to cross the ocean.
No need there was man. Tequila?
And you found that coin.
Not just a coin.
I found the coin.
Now I also had a letter from the captain widow
alluding to her husband's urgent eastern voyage.
Had a sailor's log on a Atlantic cliper,
who swored on the stack of Bibles,
he saw a great iron beast standing
two miles off the African coast.
And what kind of man judges to take
a ship like that across the ocean?
I don't know.
But I'm planning I'll find it out.
Al loves that when people are asking me that
things that makes me look a bit...
This must be nice.
To have these theories.
Now everybody think everything that's ever
happened to me happened in the water.
I'm ready. Come on, help me out of this.
You got it?
- How long to Assalome?
- - hours, no problem.
You step along?
- You think it's gonna be safe?
- Oh, it's okay.
Where we go now, no fighting. No problem.
- No problem.
- No Tuareg.
Listen, I've been thinking.
When this is over,
there's a place I know.
It's called Monterrey.
- Never heard of it.
- No? It's got a beautiful beach.
Gold and sands, surf
this place a paradise.
- Sounds good.
- Oh yeah.
Now so happened an old woman has a house there
and because she's workaholic, she's never at home.
I haven't asked her, but I'm pretty sure
that she wouldn't mind if you drop by.
- Can I bring a friend?
- You have to ask her.
- I already did.
- You did.
You made to Monterrey.
- Thank you for everything.
- You're welcome.
- Good luck to you.
- To you as well.
Indiguay, he find this one week before.
You know, I'm not too much of a linguist but
that didn't sound too good.
- Indiguay is dead.
Hey, the check! What is a check?
My dad collected ancient coins.
From a Rome, China. Siam, Persia.
Somehow they all ended up
in a shoe box in New Jersey.
- Coins travel, Dirk.
Even when that poor guy was
still alive, it could have been nothing.
Yeah, but the coin travelled from somewhere, Al.
Unless it is to ride on the back of a dolphin,
I'm gonna guess that is jumping off
when it was a little bit close
to where we're sitting.
Really, you can see that
ironclad steaming up the river?
I mean really? Isn't it more likely that we
missed it somewhere up the coast Virginia?
- I'm gonna check the boat.
Nope, I got the check.
Don't worry about it.
I'm serious. I know,
I get it all the time.
Sit down, I'll get the check!
Sheikh, my name is Dirk.
I'm looking for a boat.
- And when we would be seeing this boat?
- About years ago in .
That when Labbezanga was one
of the greatest ports in Africa.
Do you know anything else?
We use events to find dits,
not dits to find events.
I know there was a storm.
There's a great storm.
One that would have raised
the depth of the Niger
and after allow the boat to get here, yes.
It is written here.
Six days after the great storm
a dark ship route without sails
onto the banner of a single star.
It was driven up river never to return.
It brought a sickness from here up to gulf.
A bow over souls to heaven.
It was believed a damnition from Allah.
A ghostship, a castship.
What does that mean?
Yes sounds poor, what's that mean?
- The ship of death.
- Great! We call Sandecker?
- What ship? Who's death?
- He just told us to come home.
If you get a case of tequila, boy
the minute going up river to go.
- All right Rudi, you gonna run sonar of the river.
- Come on, I was hoping to meet a girl in the Australian trip.
African war's on, ship of death.
Got a profile.
- Bicycle? VCR?
- degree, minutes north.
Hold on, it's just some interference with the bouy.
- Yeah, I got it.
- The last time you checked the gallon.
- I was under the water three hours ago.
- Anything, Al?
- Hey, guys! Take a look at this!
That doesn't make any sense, this is fresh water.
- I better get a sample.
It's okay, they're just looking for Tuareg fighters.
SAMAKO, CAPITAL OF MALI
Very well, thank you.
- Join me.
- Thank you.
These belonged to general Mayen.
It been one of them actually kill the vasuli.
Isn't that fascinating.
Deeds for the natives eve.
What do you want?
You know the doctors I was telling you about,
I am afraid they're on their way to Mali.
I thought your men was going
to take care of them in Lagos.
- We had a problem.
- And now the problem is mine.
You know the thing general.
I am such a concern your measures of
containment are losing their effectiveness.
Why? Because five or six poor souls
escaped from Mali and died in their beds.
- The disease spreads quick.
- And luckilly it kills quickly too.
General, I think you should control
the movements of your population.
What's that? Are you trying to tell me
how to run my country?
You take care of your business,
Yves. I'll take care of mine.
- River? Radio.
- That's not...
- It is. Here we go again.
- Someone I might get.
- All right, stop.
- This is the Malian civil service.
- I got it.
You are trespassing Malian waters.
Step out your engines and throw the rope.
- Hi, this is Al Giordino speaking.
- Al. Sandecker. I presume you're on your way home with my boat.
- For you.
Tell me what's going on, we're waiting for you.
- Where are they? We are looking for doctors.
- I will put you on hold.
- I don't believe this is a normal shake.
- If you do not shut down your engine, you run the risk of being fired.
The doctor, we're looking for the doctor.
Where are they? Where is the woman?
- Sorry, I don't speak English.
- You are speaking English now.
No, no I only know how to say
'I don't speak English' in English.
- Hi, hold on.
Stop the engines!
- Get my hat!
- Sorry! It's gone!
That's my favourite hat!
- Are you okay?
- Where's Dirk?
- I think he is...
- I'm gonna come in. You jump on the front.
- You want me to jump?
Get on the front of the boat! Got it?
- Here! Get our gun!
- Signal for help?
No! Shoot them!
That is what I'm talking about!
- Are you all right?
- That was close.
- Al, pick up the phone.
- How are you?
Well I'm driving!
- I shot a guy with a flaregun.
What? What did you said?
Did you say you shot someone with a flaregun?
Don't put the phone...
Rudi? Al? Dirk? Nobody shooting at you?
You better not hurt my boat.
Engine two is out! Port them out man,
what do you wanna do?
- I think we need to pull a Panama!
- Panama? A Panama?
- You think? Really?
- Yeah! Really!
Somebody pick up.. They're ignoring me.
They're ignoring me!
Everybody is ignoring me.
Pick up the phone!
- Take it! We're doing the Pnama!
- What's the Panama?
I didn't know you were in Panama.
- Worked in Nikaragua.
- Why do you call it the Panama?
We don't, we were in Panama!
What are you looking for?
Al? Al? Al, I'm really confused!
How are we doing, Al?
- Go help Dirk!
- How I use this?
- Open the engine heads.
Let's go, Al!
Here, light this!
- Are these the admiral's?
- Just light it!
Whenever you're ready, Al!
- Come on!
- What are we doing?
- I don't think we should be doing that!
- Okay! Drop it!
- We're good!
- All right, hold on!
- Hold on!
Hey, I need a light deckage!
He did a Panama.
He did a Panama.
- It worked the first time?
- Well, did it really worked for first time?
- I lost my hat.
Man, Sandecker's gonna be mad when you tell him
we lost a satellite from him.
- Not as mad as when Rudi tells him he was attached to the boat.
- Wait, why me?
- Because we're not going back.
- Right Dirk?
- No, we're going to Assalome.
- No more Texas?
- I'll put it on the hold for all the while I guess.
The soldiers weren't after us,
they're after the doctors.
I got a feeling whatever gave that
chasing it must be a duty.
- Yeah, we gotta get there first.
- I'm going with you guys, right?
- No, you gotta tell Sandecker.
- Hold on, how do I cross the border?
- I never took survival training.
- Consider this your course, Rudi.
- Can't pass fail, which I was told was easier.
- Look Rudi, wait until dark and make your move.
The port is not far.
Al, you remember time in Morocco?
Yeah, when you made me ride camel.
That bit my ass.
Yeah, that's the time.
- What is the secret to this thing?
- Just wrap it around your nugget.
- What part, here? This?
- How come yours stays on?
- You got a small head.
I don't think so. Somewhere you would have told me.
World Help Organisation.
Hello? Is anyone here?
Frank, look at this.
Oh my God.
This well was filled in recently.
I think people here knew the
water was making them sick.
I still see. Would you mind my go down?
Oumar, you wouldn't mind going
down that well, would you?
- No it's okay, I'll go down.
- You see?
Frank, I'll be fine.
There you go.
All right, you're looking good.
You're looking good.
Be careful, please. Take your time.
Eva! Eva hold on!
Eva! Hold on! We got you!
- You got it?
- It's okay.
- Pull her up!
- No, I'm fine!
Give me more rope.
Got it! I made it!
- Got water!
- All right, great!
All we need, let's get you out of there.
Hey, looks like we got company.
- Don't go anywhere, I'll be right back.
Hello there, I'm doctor Hopper
from the World Help Organisation.
What are you doing?
- Please, don't shoot me!
Wow, wow, did you hear that?
- This is all of them?
- Yes, sir.
- You close that way here.
- United Nation! Sanction mission.
Where's your colleague?
No, no. I mean the woman.
She didn't come. She's ill.
This pistol, it belonged
to general Henry Watkins.
I have been made by Holland
and Holland of London.
Twenty-seven pounds each.
You should put the money to better use.
Like containing this plague.
I will give you some advice.
Tell me where doctor Rojas is.
She's not here.
Have it your own way.
Make it look like a hord
of Tuaregs came through here.
- And find the woman.
- Yes, sir.
She's here. Somewhere.
Open up a few rounds just to be sure.
Al! Little help here!
Wow, wow, wow Eva!
- Come on, are you okay?
We gotta go.
We're done here!
We're in Tuareg country now.
We're gonna drive north about
three hours to hit the flang lands.
From there it should be relatively
easy drive to the Algerian border.
We'll get through.
Please tell me what are they doing here?
Five men shot dead in the cold blood.
What do you think of all dead?
No, no you sit. You sit.
You are a very brave man. The only surviver.
Crawled all the way from Assalome
to bring me the news.
- How very commendable.
- Caught in a classic Tuareg ambush,
what did you say?
They were no Tuareg.
Why didn't you tell me the doctors
had American military support?
- Because they didn't.
- The armed men who did this,
they were not amateurs either.
The only ones on the boat.
It is the same men I think.
They're treasure hunters, general.
Marine savage they call themselves.
- Hardly your military elite.
- Don't underestimate them.
Watch out. And if you find them, bring them to me.
What is it?
Get out of the jeep. Keep your
hands up. Move slowly.
- Three o'clock.
Hi, how are you?
Did you see that?
Who are you and why are you here?
We are enemies of Kazim.
You are American.
I'm a doctor from a World Help Organisation.
I'm investigating the source of a disease.
Come with me.
This is the disease you are looking for.
I believe it is.
All right! Ready to go!
- It's not a plague.
It's not a plague, it's a poison.
There are toxins in the water, here in Assalome.
- That's what making these people sick.
Can you treat it?
- Admiral, what can I do for you?
- What do you hear from Mali?
- Info country?
- Oh, kiss my ass.
In my ears a couple of American boys in fancy
yard gave some trouble on the Nigeria.
- Does the agency have a presence there?
- No, stripped their hands off.
- I gotta to get my boys out.
- The private says they chose to go out there
to get themselves shot over some
tradigy this is not a company problem.
- I'm not asking the company.
- Yeah. You got some nerves.
You come back compromising my cover,
and now you're gonna ask me to risk
my whole carriere over this nonsense?
Well, since you put it that way. Yes, I am.
No, you're not. Cause I'm not gonna do it.
I'm not gonna do it.
- Yeah, I knew you'd bring that up.
- And now I have.
- If I do this, we are even.
- The sides clean.
I'll see what I can do.
Always a pleasure my friend.
Benzine, heavy metals, nitrates.
Basically the water is toxic.
But does seem man followed your tray.
You must leave. Tomorrow. After first light.
Modibo, Eva found the same poison
in the wells of Assalome.
- It's over miles from here.
- Oh for the time we'll find a bless for us.
- Modibo, we have to find the source.
- That is for you.
Modibo stays here with my people.
- We leave in the morning.
- I heard that my car pleases your eyes.
Six cilinders, sleeve elevated. Do you know
there's only six of these ever made?
- How the hell did you get it?
- We borrowed it. From Kazim.
Bye. Thank you.
I'll do it, I'll do it.
Okay, here we go. Come on.
- I got something you gotta see.
- Give me a minute.
- Come on!
That is your Texas, we're looking at, isn't it?
- Sure the hell it looks like it.
- Yeah, sitting in the middle of the desert.
Hey, I'm not paying off the
tequila on the picture, okay?
Ship in the desert the camels
not an ironclad battleship.
I mean that there's no way that
can get across the desert.
At one time much of this desert was lot
farmly and there were rivers everywhere.
The ironclad obviously came from this
river and stopped at this structure.
Which is a fort, a castle, I don't know.
So the climate changed,
so the water level dropped,
and the boat became stranded.
- Yeah. Or sale away.
Or the land dried up.
The soil turned to dust.
The sand's blew in and the
ship is still there to this day.
- Right here, next to the structure.
- Okay great, so all we have to do
is wait for the river to fill up
again and sail the Texas on.
- That's how it spreading.
- What is?
- The toxins.
- What? In the dried up non-existing river?
- I don't know, the same river that was on the surface
years ago still exists.
It's just beneath our feet now, sunken
in sand right in the rock strata.
And the toxins are obviously leaching from
their source in the underground river system.
- Spreading from quite well.
So we find your Texas,
we find the underground river.
We find the river,
we find the source of the toxins.
- Not now.
I have some bad news about your boat.
According to the caping this is the place.
You know Al
If we were here a years ago,
we'd be swimming right now.
You know how it is when you see
someone that jam since high school.
And they got some deadend job, and
they're married to some woman they hate,
they have like three kids and this is a joke.
Isn't there some point we step back and say
Bob, don't take that job.
Bob, don't marry that harpy.
- Your point?
- We're in a middle of a desert,
looking for the source of a river
polluting using as our map
a cape drawing of a civil war gunship
which is also in the desert.
So I just wondered when
we're gonna have to sit down
and revaluate out decision making paradigm.
I don't know. Working to some point.
- Hey Al?
- Let me see the scope.
- Here, what do you see?
I don't know.
It looks like a solar energy plant. This is strange.
It's a collecting tower. But no
outgoing transmission lines.
- Massarde Enterprises.
- Massarde? Yves Massarde?
Whoever it is, they got heavy security.
Let's check it out.
- Are you okay?
- Nice job, doc.
- Thank you.
- How are we doing, Al?
Get in a hole.
- Not now Rubi, I don't have time.
Yes sir, you do.
That's not possible.
"Yellow five, report to station three."
"Loading procedure commensed.
Distruction protocol complete."
"Please ensure all active materials
are secure restored."
- What a hell is this place?
- Good question.
These barrels here are probably fully
chemicalized and are going in that chamber.
And coming up the other side empty.
They're using the solar power
to superheat their toxins.
Looks smart. Looks clean too.
What about those barrels?
Hi, how are you?
Oh my God.
Well, I think we found your source.
These must be the soldiers
captured from Modibo's village.
He thought they were dead.
- So Massarde gage starting to piss me off.
- This time they're calling the cavalry.
Well doctor Rojas, I do wish
you had stayed in Lagos.
So, I read your report kind of.
Okay, my understanding is there's
a problem with the water. Am I right?
The water in the Niger river is being poisoned.
Right now it's in Mali, but
it's heading toward us. Fast.
If we don't so something within
one week it's gonna hit the Atlantic.
And when that interacts with the salt water,
that growth rate is gonna explode.
The oxygen levels in the infected
waters will increase by to percent
killing all plant and animal life.
If it gets to the ocean, it's halfway
to New York within six months.
Then there's nothing we can do.
Is that all?
Do you have any independent conformation?
- Because intervening
on the south of the country, granted
I'm on in the job a couple of months,
I'm pretty sure it's gonna
be tough together.
- I need you to try.
- I'm gonna looking to this, I am.
I'm gonna pass this to the state
department, get their take on this,
I think that's the best way
to proceed. Thank you, gentlemen.
Where the hell are we?
I don't know. Where's Eva?
So the two Americans are on their way, general.
The doctor, I'm afraid there's
been an incident, general.
An exchange of gun fire most unfortunate...
She's dead. Yes general. I'm sorry I...
You know doctor Rojas, you're
lucky I'm such a gentleman.
Who else knows you're here?
This facility is miracle of modern science.
State of the art technology.
Solar energy harness to destroy
the world's contaminors.
- Not such a bad idea after all.
- It's a toxic waste damage.
Not so simple, you see all
new technology has enemies.
Sandstorms for example, they
cheap away the mirrors.
Productivity falls and the waste needs
to be stored underground.
So we have developed new laminate
coating to protect the mirrors
and with this new approach our
problems should now be in the past.
You're poisoning a river system underground.
It's spreading across western Africa.
You're wrong. That's impossible.
- Who else knows you're here?
- The Nigerian government. The WHO.
No one else knows you're here today.
What are you doing?
I got it.
You got it?
- Got it!
One, two, three!
One, two, three!
Wait! That's your plan?
- Well, that's a new one.
We're home free now.
- Apparently they were lost in the desert.
- As I heard.
Tell me if the doctor...
Promise me she's dead.
- Oh yes, yes.
- You ashamed to fall off over woman.
General, I've come here to tell you
that I think we should suspend
waste shipments to the front for the time year.
- Nonsence. The borders are all closed.
Your sick are either quarantined or dead.
I did not expand all these resources
only to see my profits sleak.
Yes but I have good reasons to believe
the toxins are in the Niger river.
Any problem is no longer ours.
- But the rivers don't stream.
- They would stream find out the Americans dead.
Okay Yves, as you please,
close the plant. But your
payments to me will continue.
Don't worry. It's Africa.
Nobody cares about Africa.
This photo was taken hours ago.
Normally Kazim likes to keep
his tanks when he can see them.
In case people get frisky.
This one taken hours ago. Shows the
tanks mobilizing north to the desert.
On my guess and intelligence supports
this, they're looking for your boys.
- We'll have to find them first.
- We already did.
Your civillians showed up in a Tuareg
village about miles north-west of gulf.
That's within range. You
can get choppers in there.
- You can blew at night.
- Your boys already left.
- Left? Where? Going where?
- Based on where they're heading so far,
I have no idea.
- Yeah, yeah, yeah. I see it.
Well, you don't see that every day.
- How about your token.
- I don't wanna rain on you.
Crazy Freud body, but I don't
think we can fix this thing.
- Pull them on the left, Al!
Right there! Right there!
We got it baby!
- Hey admiral!
- How you're doing?
Dirk, thank God! Where the hell are you?
That's a damn good question.
Listen I got the bad news.
Your body Yves Massarde
has gotten industrial factory
and it's dumping deadly toxins into the Niger.
Right now I think he got to his plant.
- Which hopefully is gonna be our next stop.
- Well, I've got something for you.
Rudi's got chemistry here. It says
if that leak don't shut down,
AFAP is gonna reach the
ocean. And when it does,
that will be ground zero for
the Atlantics version of Chornobyl.
- I get it.
- I got something more.
I got word that Kazim has mobilized his
troops and he's heading across the desert.
- We could use some serious muscle here, admiral.
- Well, you're not gonna get it.
Not fast enough. I'm getting a DC step big time.
- This has to be done...
- Yesterday, I got it.
- I can't ask you boys to go this alone.
- That's a great part sir. You know you never have to.
There's no more time, Modibo.
Now is your chance take
Kazim where it really hurts.
We only have small arms.
We are no use against concrete
and heavy machine guns.
But you have power and numbers.
We attack when he does not expect it.
- We have to try.
- Do you know what Kazim's war
has cost my people in lives?
- And the powerty, and disease it causes.
- You come with us. And let's finish it.
I can't afford to have my men
slaughted in a full frontal attack.
- We cannot go with you.
- I understand.
But we have another idea.
Can I borrow your car?
How's it going?
Hi, how are you?
Zakara, go get the doctor.
Move on ahead. Let's go.
- Where is everybody?
- I don't know, cooperate retreat.
Something's wrong here, Al.
This place is completely deserted.
- Nobody home. Al?
What would you do if you were about to be
exposed to the worst blew of modern times?
- I don't know. Vote for President.
- You hide the evidence, right?
- Yeah, right.
How do you hide tons of industrial
waste without anybody seeing it?
- You're gonna blow the place, Al.
- That's not exactly so.
That's what he's gonna do.
That's why it's abandoned.
Make it look like industrial accident, you walk.
- That's a good idea.
- No, not really.
Toxins will be sealed underground,
there'll be no way to contain them, Al.
If he brings this place down he
needs or military great devices
all wired for simultaneous detonation.
It'll never look like an accident.
Unless one central he
places device diverted
all the plants stored energy
into one massive explosion.
- Which would look like an accident.
- Well, we gotta get that bomb.
- No. I'll find the bomb, you get the girl.
Got it. Bomb's in a barrel.
Get in! Get ourselves out here now!
- Back off! Back off! Move!
I apologize, Mr. Pitt. This is not what it appears.
Did I miss something? I've seen your toxic dump.
I've seen sick Tuareg women
and kids and I saw dead Asselar.
- I left something else?
Get this thing out of here, quick!
Stay here, don't move!
"Remote system activated. All personal
please move to designated safety areas."
"Initiate mirror positioning."
"Temperature threshold percent."
Come on, come on!
"Commencing scenaration burn"
"Warning, mailfunction detected"
"Initiating emergency shutdown"
"Thank you and have a nice day"
Get us out of here, quick.
Eva. How many times am I gonna
have to save your ass?
Well, in case you didn't
noticed I actually saved yours.
I was in real danger?
I had a fall on something. Come here.
We gotta go.
- Hey! What's with the costume?
- Uniforms? His idea.
Hey by the way, with this plan
of yours we have enough gas?
Oh stop being so negative, Al.
It's coming on after us!
It's Kazim! Hey, maybe he wants his car back.
Al! Did you bring these
explosives from Massarde?
- Didn't find them.
- Of course I brought the explosives!
- Eva, I hope you don't scream like a girl.
He's coming around!
Al! I need you to do it right now!
Wow! My hat!
Okay, here's the plan.
Eva, get in the back seat behind me. Go!
Al! Give me that bag of explosives.
- Got you!
- And hold on!
Eva, I need you to throw a bomb of the dynamite
in that side every time I say! Comprehend?
- All right.
Get us out. Move! Move!
- Dirk! We need cover!
- I'm working on it!
Oh my God.
Come on Eva, let's go! Let's go!
Eva, help me dig it.
Come on, let's go! Let's go!
- How we're looking, Al?
We need a little help, Al.
You didn't see me extra fuel things come aboard.
- No, I didn't see any.
- That means we only have to minutes left.
These walls have a two feet peek
with a double seal carrying, there's
no way his bullets can get to us.
We should sit tight, wait him out.
- Hey Dirk.
You don't wanna talk to me do that again?
- Armour piercing rounds.
- Are you okay?
- Yeah, I'm fine.
- Hey, Al.
- No, Dirk.
- Oh, yeah.
- No, it'll never work!
- Why not?
- It's a years old!
- It's been used.
- It'll probably blow us to bits!
- At least we die fine.
- Yeah, that's comforting.
- You go to that gun opener.
- Hey! What the hell are we doing, guys?
- I gotta go outside!
- All right, go!
Civil war piece of...
- Are you okay?
- Next time you go!
- What took you so long?
- Hey guys!
- I stopped for coffee.
- You got a receit?
Yeah, I got a receit and I got you on too.
- You're the best.
You know what, I leave and
get you the money from Sandecker.
Now we're really in trouble.
We ruin Kazim, the army will surrender.
- Cut the head off the snake...
- Body dies.
Exactly. He meet cannonball powder that keeps his out...
- I got the cannonball.
- Eva, I need you to find the fuses.
They're gonna be in box about
this size it looks like caresticks. Go.
- Fire yeards!
- I'm doing it, Al!
- I got it!
- Yeah good, good.
Jefferson Davis had how many samples made?
- Let's get that cannon on the pull.
On count three we're gonna pull. Are you ready, Al?
- One, two, three!
Yeah! That's it!
Give me up degrees, Al.
I'm so tired of being shot at!
Hold your positions, security area. I will finish this.
Look, look, look.
Looks like you killed the snake.
- There's an old way that should work.
- There's an old way that should work.
You know from my point of view the great thing is,
we kept the plants, river is safe,
and I also understand the WHO
has administrated an untie toxins on the villagers.
Formulated from doctor Rojas assignment.
- Better late than never.
So I trust your work on the Texas is going well.
Giordino is on the job making sure
everything gets towards it's supposed to go.
Say, probably not true but did I hear
a rumor there were some American
gold on board on the Texas?
Really? It would be nice if it were true.
No, I can assure you there's no
gold there belonging to the US.
Admiral, the admininstration was
highly impressed by the way you
expertited all the red tape done here.
- They'd like to fold new marine...
- No thanks. I'll never work in government again.
It's exactly what they said you'd say.
Look, they're offering full founding in exchange for
the occasional side job for the good guys.
- Who decides who the good guys are?
You will do the jobs you want.
- I need a new yacht.
- Got it.
- And Rudi needs new computers.
- No, no, no.
There's one more thing.
Not bad, ha? You and me bathing in Monterrey.
Now I was thinking.
Remember that day in the desert?
Car, dynamite. Kazim's chasings in helicopter.
There's something I wanted to say
to you but I never had a chance to.
You do scream like a girl.
