Storyline

Ben Rutherford, a man looking for work, arrives on Moon City, a colony on the moon to find work as a miner. On Moon City, Ben meets a pilot named Sam Horton and a gambler named Armond Crille. Armond has won the readout of the remote planet "Asteroid 13" from a poker opponent in a poker game and Ben encourages both Sam and Armond to travel to "Asteroid 13" to do mining, believing Asteroid 13 maybe another source of gold. Joined by a woman named Camilla Jones, whom too wants to be involved with the mining on Asteroid 13, the three companions become paranoid, believing one of them may want to claim the gold for themselves. But a ruthless Chinese bandit known as Loo Seki has also arrived on "Asteroid 13" and is also after the gold. Written by Daniel Williamson

Remake of Treasure of the Sierra Madre
1 December 1999 | by (Indianapolis, IN.) – See all my reviews

I sat down to watch this movie with my girlfriend, who loves cheap sci fi films, expecting to fall asleep at some point. Just when I was losing interest, I began to realize that I was watching a loose remake of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre", the great Humphrey Bogart-Walter Huston movie from 1948, one of my favorites.

I think the scene where the old man began dancing a jig and laughing crazily after finding the "precious" ore tipped me off. Although it was set on an asteroid, the plot was basically the same. The character in the 1948 film who wanted to horn in on their partnership was changed to a woman (Joan Chen) in this movie.

Rent both films and see if I'm right. I rate "Precious Find" a 3 out of 10 by the way.
