I have made no secret of disliking the movies made by The Asylum. I watch them out of curiosity and to see if they will make anything tolerable. So far of the movies I've seen only I Am Omega and #1 Cheerleader Camp have been halfway good, everything else has ranged from bad to atrocious. The Da Vinci Treasure is not quite one of The Asylum's absolute nadirs, but it is one movie that belongs in the atrocious category. It is visually very amateurish, with some of the most choppy and irritating editing there has been in any film from recent memory and very artificial-looking special effects. The soundtrack is of the generic kind, while the sound effects are over-bearing and sometimes bizarre. The dialogue is really trite and has a hackneyed feel constantly. The characters are not likable in the slightest, the fact that they are clichéd doesn't help but the fact that they have no development at all makes things even worse than they already are. The story, almost like part-Da Vinci Code and part National Treasure and a derivative one at that, has no life, fun or excitement, instead it is lethargically paced, has no heart, love or soul, and at the end of the day has no point to it. The acting is awful, Thomas C.Howell looks ill and seems to be seriously lumbering with his character, and if you are going to have a decent actor like Lance Henriksson as the villain at least give him something to do will you. In conclusion, instead of a treasure it was a nightmare, pointless, dull, soulless and choppily edited complete with bad dialogue, an even worse story and no enthusiasm in the acting. A resounding 1/10. Bethany Cox
