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
1 - Stephen Baldwin...Please stay at home, it'll be good for you (and for us too !), and that includes all the Baldwin dynasty as well !
2 - The screenplay got maybe some good thoughts but the idiot work of director Jim Wynorski detonated it all!
3 - The bad guys (Hannes Jaenicke and Jerry Doyle) take this tip : get any work but acting!, just like (Coby Ryan McLaughin) as the sly detective; he was awful, and in one shot he looked like Ben Affleck whom I hate too!!
4 - Nicollette Sheridan..what can I say?! Once I was crazy about her. Her role as (Paige Matheson) in the TV-Series (Knots Landing) was too sexy to handle!! She was a continuous guest star in every single sexual fantasy of mine and all of my generation at the late 1980s and early 1990s. OH Paige! Even in small separate movies such as (Deceptions - 1990) which I rent it too many times or (Raw Nerve - 1999) she was still at her top as one sexy MAMA. BUT after that she became suddenly old ?? Her hot body is gone, her pretty face is lost and despite her role in the (Desperate Housewives) as the deliciously evil Edie Britt she is not that good as an explosive anymore !! AND HERE in the staggering (Lost Treasure) I honestly sat to watch it for a good action adventure AND any hot scene of Nicollette; swimming in bikini like in (Deceptions), getting nude like in (Raw Nerve), kissing someone even Stephen Baldwin ! or showing her tongue, wearing short skirt like in (Spy Hard)..Yes I'm that despairingly in love the OLD image of her BUT HERE you'll find nothing at all. Not even acting (simply there is no roles!!). Oh my Nicollette. How I mess your bed scenes in (Silver Strand) even if it was made for TV and had no nudity at all!
5 - Tami-Adrian George (as Tami the nice wife). She has real great butt, beautiful long legs, but also such a bad huge bosom! However to be fair, the scene when she was going to the jungle to urinate, her butt was just too lovely, moving in so erotic way; and believe me this moment is the only good thing about this waste of time named Lost Treasure !
6 - The cheap fraud at the beginning of the movie : you will read "screenplay by" and there are proofs against that for sure. Let alone that the first scene is a rip-off from (Backdraft - 1991) which is a movie starring another individual of the Baldwin family !
7 - Mark Christopher Lawrence (as the talkative person) is nice but without any charismatic power.
Maybe this movie was made to enjoy kids, but it shows like it's made by kids !
