Storyline

A new reality-style game show, "Treasure Hunt" has invited a cast of contestants, including a Los Angeles cop who's joined to try and make up for an earlier PR blunder, to a tropical island to hunt for a buried treasure worth ten million dollars. Unbeknownst to the contestants, the game's host has struck a deal with the soldiers hired to guard the money, and does not really have the player's best interests, or even basic safety, at heart. Adding to the situation is a killer hurricane bearing down on the island. Who will walk away with the jackpot? Who will walk away at all? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Truly Painful
10 November 2005 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Give credit to writer Steve Latshaw for some memorable quotes in this masterpiece. For example, try this one on for size:

'It's our only chance!'

Who said Shakespeare was the bard?

This movie has been credited as being 'a good B movie'. Not even close. This movie is 'a bad Z movie'. It can't even make the end of the alphabet.

This is truly painful. It must have been at least mildly unpleasant for everyone except the writer, the director, and the money - who probably thought they had a winner on their hands.

Note the IMDb have no info on how much this blockbuster cost. Pocket change most likely.

But couldn't they have at least paid more money for a good screenplay? Or is that against the rules too?

Does a bad movie have to be bad through and through to really qualify as bad?

And don't forget to check out the filming locations for a really good laugh.
