We have all seen the movie. The world-famous archaeologist, accompanied by a crew of local assistants, makes his way into a tropical jungle to retreieve an ancient relic. Something goes wrong, local villagers find out a sacred artifact is being removed, and they attack with machetes in a frenzied mob. The archaeologist is forced to beat a hasty retreat to the river, barely escaping with his life. Dah dah dadah, da dah!
