When Claire, Arnet and the others reach the wooden bridge with the truck, there immediately is a wide shot establishing the bridge and the valley. On top of the bridge, however, we can already see the truck driving on it and Claire waving it along, whereas in the next shot everybody is back at the parked truck. See more »
There's absolutely nothing original in Coronado, the acting is average at best the script could use a serious polish but somehow it remains fun. The obvious comparisons to this film are the likes of Romancing the Stone and Sahara. But comparisons fail to take into account that Coronado was made on a 10th of the budget of Sahara which itself was no great film.
They've managed to squeeze quite a lot into the film for $4.7million and there is a bridge sequence which works really well. It's just a shame they didn't have more money to get some beter quality actors add a bit more to the script. The story is very predictable with a few twists and turns added it would have been far superior.
Fun on a budget, nothing original but if you loved Romancing the Stone you'll get some enjoyment out of this. 6/10
