Movie Reviews

Treasure hunter
Russell Palmer | spokane,wash.usa | 06/27/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"i read the book about mel fisher called "TREASURE" when i was a boy. this year, i ordered the discovery channel's video, and this one:"DREAMS OF GOLD" to add to my video collection. the discovery channel's coverage was kind of stale and factual, but i was surprised by the "DREAMS OF GOLD" video. it made the characters come to life much more, and portrayed them like the real people they are.true stories are always best in my opinion, and often stranger then fiction. another good treasure hunting story to read is "SHIP OF GOLD IN THE DEEP BLUE SEA" by gary kinder. i found this one in a dollar store and i couldn't put it down. it's the story of the search for the wreck of the "central america""

"Dreams of Gold was a made for TV movie about Mel Fisher. The movie details the struggles as well as the success of the Fisher family, from their long struggle trying to find lost sunken treasure; loss of their son and daughter-in-law at sea as well as their battle with the State of Florida in the Supreme Court."
