Dull and boring
26 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set mainly in Arizona, this is a story of searching for a legendary horde of gold. The protagonist attempts to follow the few clues available, such as an arrow carved in a rock. While doing so, he become romantically involved with a young woman who lives in the desert.

The makers of this low-budget film failed to generate any excitement, tension, mood, or suspense, and there is no character development. The attempts at humor are very feeble.

"Mediocre" would be a good word to describe the directing, editing, and cinematography.

I'm pretty sure the novel must be much more enjoyable.
