Thoughts on... Treasure of the Black Jaguar (2010)

Treasure of the Black Jaguar, 2010.

Directed by Mike Bruce.

Starring Cameron Van Hoy, Michael Drayer, Timothy V. Murphy and Masayuki Imai.


Two boys discover that easy money is just a mirage when their desert-based caper takes a murderous turn.

Treasure of the Black Jaguar is an American independent film that received a positive reception after being screened at Raindance. Having now seen the film myself I honestly feel that after its theatrical release it has the potential to be accepted as a real gem of indie cinema.

The story focuses on two friends, Anthony (played by co-writer Cameron Van Hoy) and Shlomo (Michael Drayer) who end up in prison after failing with a ‘get rich quick’ scheme. Whilst inside they meet treasure hunter Blake West (Timothy V. Murphy) who helps them escape and takes them on an expedition to retrieve a mysterious artifact - along with the fame and fortune that comes with it.
