    A couple of handsome teenage boys were the only reason for me to vote a "7" for this rather disappointing kids-adventure. With Matt Boston ("Ghosts that still walk", also by Flocker) in the cast, you would expect a traditional "Flocker-Trash-Movie", but this one turns out to be a rather dull and mediocre television-adventure.

    Plus points: The cinematography and score were better than the norm for a typical 1990s "family" movie.

    Minus points: Goofy idea of a ship run aground this far inland less than 200 years ago. High schoolers on an overnight science field trip with two teachers are looking in the Nevada desert for geodes. Because of a photo shop mistake two of the boys in the class, when going to pick up their prints, accidentally get hold of someone else's photos of a map showing a sailing ship buried in the sand. Now the boys want to beat the people who photographed the map to the treasure that is doubtless in the ship's hold. They decide to combine this geode expedition with a treasure hunt. Wow, the scriptwriter must be seriously hard up for ideas and believe that any viewer over the age of 8 is going to believe that the flooding of the Colorado River brought a ship as far inland as Nevada. I also have a quibble with language. There are several four and five letter words in a supposedly "family" film.
