The Da Vinci Treasure is a 2006 direct-to-video mystery film produced by American studio The Asylum, and directed by Peter Mervis.

The film is considered to be a mockbuster of the film The Da Vinci Code, and both films were released within the same month.[1]

Plot[edit]

The film centres on Michael Archer (C. Thomas Howell), a forensic anthropologist who inadvertently discovers a set of subtle clues within the works of Leonardo da Vinci, that, when interpreted correctly, will lead the finder to "enlightenment".

Archer, convinced of the authenticity of the clues, sets out to locate the treasure by travelling around the world, following each clue. As time passes, however, Archer soon realizes that he is not alone in the quest for the treasure, and that he must combat other, more determined, treasure-seekers who would sooner see him dead.

Cast[edit]

Reception[edit]

The efilmcritic, while stating Asylum can make the occasionally good movie, found this movie to rip off both the Da Vinci Code and National Treasure] and found the movie disappointing and "lazy" with failed attempts to be historically accurate. [2]
