90 min

It must be

over 400 years old.

At least 90% purity.

Soft to the touch.

It was only a matter of time.

This is going to be

the biggest haul

of gold artifacts

in the history

of Adams exploration.

Adams exploration?

In the history of the world.


Is that what you want?

The company

can give it to you.

The company cannot

pay me what I want.

I'm not going to do this

because I loved your father.

I'm sorry. This is

the best that I can do.

This is your release form.

Got any place to go?


I'm an archeologist.

Hell of a funeral procession.

The king is dead.

Long live the king.

It's still up

in the air, Matthew.

Our business is to salvage

and recovery of treasure.

It looks bad

if a hundred thousand

gold coins go missing.

And the killing

is in the press.

We won't have a ceo

until this is resolved.

A king is a king from birth.

The coronation

is just a formality.


Your sister might disagree.

My sister doesn't have

the stomach for this job.

She's just a scientist.

She has to be

placated somehow.

Your father

gave her a journal

with enough documents to blow

this whole thing to bits.

No, she'd never hurt

this company.

She doesn't have the balls

to use a nuclear option

like that.

This fight will take place

in the boardroom...

And I own the boardroom.

- Yes, but...

- So typical of my father.

He spends his whole life

pillaging, pirating,

only to get a guilty

conscience at the end.

Still, I think he's right,

and when I run this company,

I'm gonna run it clean.

Remember, be diplomatic.

Offer her cfo,

head of research-- a carrot.

I've been diplomatic

with her my entire life.

It's time she learns that

there's a new balance of power.

You've got some f***ing nerve

calling me today

after your screwed

everything up.

Excuse me? The security

you insisted upon hiring

was useless.

My interns could've

done a better job.

All I know is that

you failed to stop them.

I looked down the barrel

of a loaded gun.

I almost got shot

execution style

by a man who used to come

to our family barbecue.

So pardon me

all the f***ing hell,

but I'm not in the mood

for a teachable moment

from you right now.

My sympathies, mave, truly,

but I'm ceo now,

and you just cost our company

a billion dollars.

What? You're not ceo.

Mave, Ernest here.

If I may...

Your father implemented

security measures.

Because of today, we had

to vote for an interim ceo.

And I'm sorry

for your ordeal, truly.

Oh, go to hell, both of you.

I'll fight you

in the boardroom and win.

See you at

the f***ing meeting.

She'll fall in line.

It's the beginning

of a new era.

If it's one thing I've learned

from your father,

never underestimate

your own family.

A leader has to show strength.

When sir Francis Drake

was sent to raid the Spanish,

his co-commander Thomas dowdy

tried to take control.

Thomas dowdy was a gentleman,

a scholar, and a war hero.

But Drake was the captain,

and one of them was

beheaded the next day.

I understand your

long-standing fascination

with sir Francis Drake,

but I'm not sure what

the same logic applies

to 21st century Hong Kong.

That's bullshit.

This company needs a captain.

My sister is not gonna

get the votes,

because she spent there entire

life reading about history,

and I've spent my entire

life understanding it.

This way.

Everything is in here.

An aika stone?


This is mesopotamian.

The term is actually

akkadian, but, uh...

Look, are you going to be

doing this here or back

at your appraisal office?

You're selling it?

Well, you're from
