The two crooks brothers Sam and Madison Deam (Mark Damon / Stan Cooper) align themselves with a poker cheater and his companion, Agnes (Rosalba Neri) and a blind Mexicans together into a heavily guarded fort in Chihuahua to steal a treasure. Finally, they expect a big surprise ...
So, last night I saw him, and I'm really surprised. A really entertaining, slight dark film with good actors and a compelling storyline. But the opening credits are not good. It looks like a very bad Comedy-Western. The music isn't good, too and the Song ist terrible. This are never the original opening credits.
Mark Damon and Stan Cooper play two crooks brothers Sam and Madison Deam. While Damon as Deam is the quiet type, and more cool, so Cooper as Sam Madison is more of a daredevil so he's quickly after a bank robbery under the Gallow
Their opponent is the Mexican General "El Supremo" (The Supreme), which is a real pig. He is hanging Mexican farmers on corn sacks and shoot on the bags, so running out of the corn and the farmers slowly suffocate them more than break their necks. Moreover, he makes the whole a sort of holiday, with music, wine, women and song.
The story is straightforward and until to the finish not very rich application, but original.
The shootouts and the storms of the fort are great, just like the last shootout and surprise at the end.
The music is, as already mentioned, not really special. The title song can be forgotten. Is never in the life of the original song. The Mukke during the film is great, even if 1 or 2 pieces stolen from other Westerns, but used in ways that you might not immediately notice.
Conclusion: The Great Treasure Hunt is a very entertaining film with great actors, good story and good camera work. The location is also very demanding. The film is probably as good as any fan like IW. I was convinced of the movie and i really like it. The Film needs a very good DVD Release. Too bad that there is no German version.
7.8 out of 10 points
I have received an English Fullscreen version. The picture is very bright at first almost too bright, but is better in the first 15 minutes.But it looks better than Ennioo's version. The picture is clearer. Also lies in how the TV is set. Image is sometimes better sometimes worse. Scenes during the day are all right, scenes at night, however, partially dark. But I am convinced that everyone here already have seen what worse. Running time is 90 minutes and 35 seconds. Should therefore be UNCUT.
Overall, the version is fine as long as better and not available in English, I can be full of life with this
If someone views the Spanish VHS getting , let me know.
One could make a super Fandub of this
