review by
Mike Haberfelner

By a seeming accident, treasure hunter Eddie Fox (Josh Margulies) gets his hands on an ancient journal that contains an encrypted map to a magical spear that's supposed to be the most powerful weapon on earth. And soon after that he's receiving a visit from a new client, Tanya (Stella Tinucci), who seems to know a few secrets of the book, including that it's somehow linked to the compass of one of Eddie's ancestors. She wants to hire him for hunting this particular treasure with him, but before they know it, she's taken by local baddie Charles Wellington (Dezmond Gilla) and his goons Leilani (Terry Bookhart) and Kainoa (Kava Jones), who also steal Eddie's newfound journal and compass. Together with his assistant Maleko (William Roehl), Eddie takes it upon itself to free the girl and get back what's his. And he's successful as well, but now a race for the treaure is on, and the favours seem to be constantly changing between Eddie and Wellington ... until Wellington decides to fall back to have Eddie do the dirty work - to then murder him for the spear and take Tanya hostage. But the spear has its very own set of powers and demands a saying who's holding it as well ...


Now while it's fair to say The Lost Treasure is not the most original of adventure movies, that's at the same time also part of the film's charm: It might be old-fashioned in approach, a bit overly family-friendly, and yes, its low budget might shine through at times as well, but it's a rather wonderful throwback to adventure serials and B-movies of old - with a hint of classic Doctor Who thrown in, mind you -, for its straightforward, at times even intentionally naive plot, its welcome lack of going for post-modern reinterpretations, its moments of comedy that are devoid of forced self-irony, and its relatively short running time (circa 65 minutes) that sees to it that everything stays brisk and well-paced and the story doesn't go off on tangents. And all that, coupled to the often breathtaking Hawaiian locations, makes this just one fun piece of genre cinema.
