I found Plunder Of The Sun (POTS) to be one of the most cliched, predictable and, yes, decidedly dumb Crime/Adventure stories (with its preposterous double-whammy romance, thrown in for good measure) that I've seen, from the good, old 1950s, in a mighty long time._____ Featuring some real goofball villains, annoying/boring femme fatales and various implausible (and highly laughable) situations, POTS' story about hunting for hidden treasure amongst the ancient ruins and pyramids at Monte Alban, Mexico, just didn't have what it takes to cut the mustard, from my point of view._____ With its story being told mainly through flashbacks, including lots of voice-over narration by Al Colby (Glenn Ford's less-than-appealing character), POTS was definitely one of those movies that left this viewer quite dissatisfied and thinking to himself that this picture certainly had the potential to be a whole lot better than it was._____ Even though POTS' running time was only a mere 80 minutes, it sure seemed to me that so much of the general action was all but totally worthless and easily forgettable._____ As well, this film certainly lost a lot of its overall entertainment value by being filmed in stark b&w. The many scenes that were shot amongst the Zapotec ruins near Oaxaca, Mexico, would have been absolutely wonderful to behold had they been given the full Technicolor treatment.
