Hunting for treasure has never been so dull
1 June 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

"Treasure of Tayopa" is a real obscurity; though I am well versed in B cinema, I hadn't even heard of this movie until I bought a Mill Creek 50 movie DVD set and found the movie among the 49 others. It doesn't take long to figure out why this movie has been forgotten. It's a real old fashioned movie, coming across like it was made in the 1950s instead of the 1970s. But that's not a fatal problem. The big problem is that the movie is incredibly slow and boring. It takes forever for the movie to present the first real obstacle to its lead characters, and further obstacles are slow and infrequent in coming. As for the whole treasure- hunting portion of the movie, there's hardly any of that as well; most of the movie is just people struggling their way through the desert. I won't mention what eventually happens in the end, but it's a real head scratcher moment. In fact, the whole movie will have you puzzled as to what audience it was aimed for. I can't see that anyone on earth would be entertained by this.
