Treasure of Tayopa is about four people who go on an expedition in Mexico in search of lost gold. The group consists of a no nonsense female leader, an exposition-spouting older man, a long haired hothead called Sally and a Mexican side-kick. It's a real obscurity and a bit of an oddball movie overall. Much of its strangeness is on account of how shabbily it has been brought to the screen. Its poorness in most areas has resulted in a film with a somewhat strange ambiance.
It could best be described as a semi-western adventure film. But it's quite difficult becoming very involved with the mission itself as it's never exactly very well presented. In fact, it's more than a little boring for much of the time unfortunately. Events are enlivened, however, with some scenes of excessive violence committed by the character Sally, who turns out to be a bit of a psychopath, albeit a somewhat annoying one. His crimes include doubling back to massacre a group of Mexicans for a decidedly minor infraction and administering a bloody whipping to the leading lady. As I say, it's all rather strange but it does feature some decent folk rock on the soundtrack, of a type that I am quite partial to. On the whole, this is one only for the most intrepid cinema fan.
