Please Append To My Review
12 September 2004 | by TomDugan2See all my reviews

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...
