Believing it’s the key to keeping her family together, a teenage farm girl embarks on a quest to find a long-lost treasure — not realizing her closest ally on the project is in league with her chief nemesis.
Rachel’s having an adventure. If looking for an abandoned mine filled with treasure weren’t thrilling enough, she’s also being led there by a ghostly figure, and pursued by rivals. She’s got a sense of adventure. She’s got bravery. She’s got her new friend, a guy named Fairly, on the trek with her. And she’s got motivation. Saving the family property will take some money, and an abundance of gold would certainly help.
Cascadia Treasure is a lively journey. Its classic aspects may please adventure-film fans, and its offbeat aspects add to its entertainment.
You get the sense that making the film may have been an adventure as well. This is no overdone, big-budget extravaganza. This is a fun, lower-budget extravaganza. The special effects and production may not always be convincing, but the energy and confidence is. If you’re onboard with that, Cascadia Treasure will have you cheering for its tenacity.
There is some content that viewers may want to consider. There is plenty of language, including name-calling. A boy dies in a mine. Violence includes fighting. A gun is involved. There’s danger, and sometimes death. There is also bullying. And, as referenced earlier, there are ghosts, but their appearance is not gruesome.
Viewers looking for a fun adventure may find it in Cascadia Treasure. However, they may also find some negative content. Such uneven terrain may send them in a different direction, or it may be worth the adventure.
With these content concerns in mind, Cascadia Treasure is Dove-approved for Ages 12+.
The Dove Take:
Gold-goaled adventure has charm, and potential content concerns worth being aware of.
