Fantasic acting, average film - The Treasure of the Sierra Madre review by Victoria Sutton

Spoiler Alert
28/08/2008

I had previously read some spectacular reviews about this film and its accolades include it being ranked number 30 on the AFI greatest American films and it winning 3 Academy awards; I however was not captivated by it.

I do appreciate that the acting and cinematography, in the films time (1948) would have been quite astounding, however nowadays in my opinion it seems quite average. The plot is interesting and there are a few laughs and shocks along the way, but I just never got interested enough. From all the rave reviews I have read I am sure there will be many people disagreeing with me. The one commendation I can make though was the acting, especially Humphrey Bogart who really stood out, especially one scene towards the end. To summarise, the film was average, I recommended it to fans of older films and definitely Humphrey Bogart fans.
