Intense action scenes...enticing wardrobe...quixotic narrations... What
more can you say about this delectable movie? Three teeny boppers find
an abandoned boatyard in Emerald Cove.
If you thought that the Goonies was the signature movie for the 90's, you haven't been on the tumultuous ride that Treasure takes you on. Treasure has you biting your nails and cracking your knuckles at the same time. It keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what these crazy kids are going to do next.
The film quality is impeccable. The sound quality is even more delicious. The adventure these kids take you on leaves you spun out at the end, wanting more. The villains are truly frightful, and the reality of using real overweight actors shows the heart of America, the overweight fast-food society of our generation.
Treasure is the signature movie for the adventures children of the 90's. If you have any culture in film-making or even film watching, Treasure is truly a family hit you don't want to miss. Two thumbs very up.
This is one of those movies that I loved because despite its efforts to be a normal, children's adventure tale, it actually turns out to be a comic gem. Why? The acting, the plot, the dialogue, the characters. This is one of those movies that made me exclaim "It hurts!!!" because I was laughing so hard. (Also check out "Trucks" for this same effect. I am 21 and I love this movie (maybe I'm just immature and easily entertained). I would give a lot to have this movie released on dvd with director/cast commentary.
Every time I went to my grandparents to spend the night, we would go to the video store and rent this. It was a tradition that I miss now as an adult. The last time I saw it was when I was in Jr. High, I think, and I was spending the night with my cousins (one is 6 years younger than me, and the other is 7 years younger). We rented this and another film, and the one cousin was like, "lets not rent Treasure, it looks dumb!" The next morning, when my aunt asked her son if he had fun, he was like, "I liked the movie Mindy rented (Treasure) better than the one Katie rented (Monkey Trouble)" This movie rocks, and even kids today can enjoy it! I think it was amusing that it took several times viewing it to realize that the one guys name was Dub, not Tub! I think I would have preferred Tub. It was so much fun to call him that. I'd recommend this movie to any kid looking for an adventure story.
I had the interesting experience of working on this film as an assistant editor with Robert Paul. I had not been a part of principal photography, or even the initial rough cut. When it came to me, we worked on it steadily for 15-20 hour days for three straight weeks. I appreciate aspects of the film given its lack of budget, but there were far too many sequences where there was just not enough film footage to make much sense. It's kind of like the idea of the current Disney film 'Holes'. The Treasure is pock-marked with many craters.. It was a neat experience seeing it on the silver screen. Yes, it's not very good as a finished film, but it was a fun experience, and young kids (very young...) seem to enjoy some of the antics.
I saw this Movie Back in 1994 When the movie had already been forgotten and passed on. I wasn't expecting much on that hot July day but I popped it in my VCR and let the good times roll. Watching this movie today reminds me of the simpler times of Kool-aid,Waterhoses,and City boys with rubber chickens.
A film so ridiculously deritive that you know what's going to happen as
opening credits come up.
A film so bad that you don't care.
The three kids mysteriously grow 4-5 inches in some scenes, obviously shot
months later in order to help out the plot or because the filmmakers ran
of money and couldn't shoot the film all at once.
The deus-ex-machina ending is acted so badly that all actors and crew should hang their head in shame.
I remember watching this when I was about 10. My mom rented it for my brother and me, she said it was going to be like the Goonies. Well, it wasn't. My brother and I thought it was the worst movie we had ever seen, up until that point in time. I've seen it a few times on tv since then and my feelings are the same. to be avoided
