Trust your dreams ...........
9 June 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

The message of "Dreams of Gold" is to never, ever, give up, when you believe in something. Cliff Robertson as Mel Fisher comes across as part treasure hunter, and part salesman, as he steadfastly pursues investors to finance his quest for the Atocha treasure. This pursuit is not without continuous legal battles and personal tragedy. Character development is marginal for Robertson and Switt, and non existent for the remaining cast. All of their children look like surfer's recruited off a nearby beach, and telling who is who is next to impossible. Other than the capsizing calamity, and the actual finding of the treasure, the film has very little substance. - MERK
