Storyline

A new reality-style game show, "Treasure Hunt" has invited a cast of contestants, including a Los Angeles cop who's joined to try and make up for an earlier PR blunder, to a tropical island to hunt for a buried treasure worth ten million dollars. Unbeknownst to the contestants, the game's host has struck a deal with the soldiers hired to guard the money, and does not really have the player's best interests, or even basic safety, at heart. Adding to the situation is a killer hurricane bearing down on the island. Who will walk away with the jackpot? Who will walk away at all? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

unintentionally humorous
18 January 2002 | by greg-314See all my reviews

Watch the first 10 minutes of this film and you realize that there are a number of scenes taken from Last Action Hero. I wondered why Treat Williams was dressed the same as Arnold and driving the same car. After watching these and other scenes, one had to wonder how much of this movie was actual new footage and how much had been taken from other movies.

Do not rent this movie. It's predictable (perhaps this statement is obvious since some viewers will have seen various segments before). It's a low Grade B movie at best.
