`the bloody dufus HAD a phillips screwdriver ON his "pen knife!"`

Those weren`t phillips head screws, they were gutter bolts. you need a large flat head to undo them. But a knife works, if you have patience.

Cool, but very similar to Operation Falcon Punch, which was just as creepy.

BAD ACTING. "Fortress" is so obviously fake that he ruins the potential for a good story.

1st thing that ruined it for me - the bloody dufus HAD a phillips screwdriver ON his "pen knife!" No one`s that dumb - and he obviously fancies himself a sophisticate. Way too many shaky camera angles and impromptu "put-on" qualities, including audio character, to suck me in - but I`m still watching, clearly sucked in.

Batmanners: Maybe each scene linked up with a verse or something from Pardoner`s Tale. Besides, there`s such things as cryptograms where you figure out a phrase or group of words even when you don`t have all the letters. It can be done.

C`mon, it was a good story. Like a good ghost story at Halloween, deep down you know it`s bullsh*t, but it`s fun and you join in the mood.

What killed it for me was the decyphering of the first puzzle.

The clues did not have all the letters of the alphabet, how would one know which scene linked up to which letter if as soon as the letter "C", your sequence was messed up? I`m not saying it can`t be done, but the message didn`t use C, G, J, M, P, Q, V or X. It would be really tough to match up the story, that`s all.

"But.... there is no field shaped like that... or any such place as Felynamynydd. So no BBC news story ether. "

You`re looking for yellow, it was a green field when Google took their picture. The program used in the video was not Google Maps.

Here is the Field you said doesn`t exist, I got it off your link

Unfortunately, not real. The videos show here are on youtube, but were only uploaded last year. A shame, but at the same time a relief.

Yes it is fake, just check the guys website (adam-butcher.co.uk). But real or fake, does it matter? The question is did it entertain you?
For me, yes. I thought it was realy well done and would like to see more movies like this. Made me think of the old show Are you afraid of the dark.

It`s a fake story, AL1 used the same shovel as Fortress too. Deal with it.

I enjoyed it.

To those saying he should have found a wireless connection, you evidently have never been to rural north wales.

He hadn`t buried a treasure. It was a trap. The person wanted to be f.... Never mind. Go watch a Hollywood blockbuster or something.

Horrible.

-Acting is atrocious, even the narrating is bad.

-"Fortress" seems to instantly know where certain plot advancements are to be found.

-Nobody on a hot on the trail of a treasure is going to be making vids and posting them every step of the way, it increases competition and increases your chances of not getting it.

-No self respecting treasure burying person would only have 3 clues.

The only positive thing I can say about this is that it had a good underlying moral, however it`s extremely unfortunate that the narrator feels his viewers are so incompetent that he had to say it exactly instead of letting them draw the conclusions on their own or at the very least hint at it in a round about way. Yea.. that was the only `good` thing.

Again, horrible.

It`s possible, but if you were 100% sure that you were about to dig up £9000 would you bother finding an internet Cafe or some free Wifi so you could upload a video to youtube?

You don`t think he could have found some internet café, or that he might have gone somewhere with wireless connection and have brought the computer (as he had done all the previous computering on a laptop)?

How would he have uploaded the last video, showing him on a train going to Wales, if he was killed while he was there?
