DVD Talk…and I think that’s another deficit in Treasure—it’s more of a travelogue at times than movie thriller. (A narrator at the beginning even regales us with some Frisco stats before the story gets underway.) Shooting on location is always nice in a film, but it shouldn’t overshadow the plot…which is conventional to the point of cliché from the get-go. (There’s even a scene with a paralyzed victim who must communicate by moving his eyeballs.) I wasn’t quite as taken with the suspense as Galbraith; truth be told, I had a little trouble staying awake at several points in the film. (You could argue that the suspense is generated by “will he be able to keep from nodding off?”)
