A painting is stolen from a building during a great fire and after it is recovered, the police finds inside a mysterious map. A police officer responsible for the case asks his brother (Stephen Baldwin), who is an antiques expert, to help him during the investigation. Analysing the paint and fabric, they find that the map belonged to Cristopher Columbus and the drawings in it refer to an old legend of a lost treasure. Besides unraveling the mysterious riddles, the police officer and his brother will have to fight off a violent gang pursuing the treasure as well. Written by
I just found out that "Lost Treasure" was contracted and produced as an "HBO Original Feature" and that is why it looks like and ends like a Made-For-TV Movie. It is! Since there is no indication anywhere that this is not what most people would call a "film" (theatrical release) but rather a hasty "teleplay," it is clear the distributors are screwing with the buying and/or renting public. This should no more be on the same shelf with a major studio release than my home movies. Maybe the Home Entertainment industry should do a little self-regulation on entertainment classifications. I have no problems with presentations like "Lost Treasure" as long as I know what I am buying or renting or watching. Other then that, let the viewer beware...
