Thoughts on Legend of Oro Arrowhead
Legend of Oro Arrowhead is an adventure thriller following a man returning home after his father’s death. Only to find himself getting caught up in mystery that he was trying to solve. Finding himself need to fight back against somebody else hunting for the same treasure.
When it comes to the story we are seeing here, we get the typical treasure hunt. Where a rich person is trying to get it for their own profit. While the new hunter is willing to do it for the right reason, to celebrate the history of the people behind it. This story does everything it needs to for a small treasure hunt, but never reaches the intensity of what we would expect.
The performances in the film are strong enough, but never reach the top levels you would expect in an adventure movie. This does feel more like a beginning of a bigger idea, where we could return to see the characters in more adventures.
