Lou Diamond Phillips,
Opening credits prologue: In 1622, the Atocha, a Spanish ship, was lost at sea off the Florida keys, carrying two hundred and sixty people to their deaths and with them a legendary fortune in treasure.
Over three centuries later, Mel Fisher led his family on a search for the Atocha. His dream of adventure, glory and gold would challenge the laws of this country and change their lives forever.
The message of "Dreams of Gold" is to never, ever, give up, when you believe in something. Cliff Robertson as Mel Fisher comes across as part treasure hunter, and part salesman, as he steadfastly pursues investors to finance his quest for the Atocha treasure. This pursuit is not without continuous legal battles and personal tragedy. Character development is marginal for Robertson and Switt, and non existent for the remaining cast. All of their children look like surfer's recruited off a nearby beach, and telling who is who is next to impossible. Other than the capsizing calamity, and the actual finding of the treasure, the film has very little substance. - MERK
