Audience Reviews for Mother Lode (Search for the Mother Lode: The Last Great Treasure)

Charlton Heston's career spills over into the 80's turning what might've easily been a B-movie script into a nice surprise. A fair share of suspense, action, good performances, and terrific cinematography made this a highly enjoyable story.

Nick Mancuso does a pretty good job in his role and it's nice to see John Marley pop up here and there. Kim Basinger wasn't terrible, but not necessarily memorable. Luckily, she doesn't detract from the real star of the film which are the mountainsides of British Columbia along with the claustrophobia of muck-filled mine shafts. Murder and adventure set the tone.
