THE DA VINCI TREASURE

I don't know what it is about The Asylum but I just keep buying and watching all of their films. I mean at one point they did original films all the time but now it seems it is only mostly these mock busters. This is obviously a rip off of The Da Vinci Code but since I don't think I have seen that film I can't compare. Yes I know every one has seen it but it didn't interest me in any way, so I skipped it and will most likely continue do so. With that said this I guess is not totally horrible but like I said there is no comparison, it may be horrific compared to the big budget flick. Still it has the great Lance Henriksen in it as well as C. Thomas Howell so that is good I guess.

The story is all about a guy named Michael Archer [Howell] who is you guessed it looking to uncover a mystery surrounding the works of one Leonardo Da Vinci. Of course there will be obstacles such as the lead villain played by Lance. So he enlists the help of some woman and they are off to find a buried treasure that is in a tomb full of traps. There are a few things that happen in between with some being actually entertaining at times. The thing is that since I know it is a rip off I can't help but think how the original plays out, I guess I might see one day.

The film is bad, don't get me wrong and I assume you would most likely hate it if you loved the mainstream one, but it isn't all that bad. The acting for the most part is pretty bad though and even Lance can't save the film from that down fall. Lance him self seems like he was just here to get a quick pay check to be honest and Howell is decent in the lead role I suppose. The rest I will leave up to you as far as their performances go, for the most part it is non impressive.

There are four writers on this film including director Peter Mervis who some may know from "When a Killer Calls, and Snakes on a Train". The writing I assume is a lackluster version of the original and the direction seems off. Still I don't know what I like about this movie because I don't hate it, it's weird. I don't maybe I need to watch it again or something but it seems like something in it is appealing, Lance maybe.

I think this would be a rental at most for well most, unless you are like me and collect all of these films from The Asylum. Some of their films are excellent, some good, and some not so much. My brother didn't like this one as much as others but he felt it was ok. If you don't like low budget flicks or rip off flicks this one is most certainly not for you.
