Wonderful Texture Jan. 23 2014
By Glen L. Pennington - Published on Amazon.com

I love the old Sherlock Holmes, Oliver Twist and Orient Express movies for their class. This delivers at the same level. It has all the elements you love in a good cliffhanger with a spark of innocence and mysterious arts. Everything is vivid and high quality. The continuous acting sweeps you along. You will not be disappointed if you love the old mysteries.

Very good - worth seeing adventure movie. Jan. 3 2014
By Conservative girl - Published on Amazon.com

I loved the actors and the characters - liked the story and i am glad that i saw it. It may not be the absolute BEST movie in this genre but i'd say it was very good at least. There aren't enough movies in this genre and so I'd say SEE it for sure if you like Adventure/Action/Sci Fi or Fantasy type movies. I personally LOVE them so i'm always looking for something to get a "fix" on (I am a Star Wars, Star Trek, Avatar, Indiana Jones LOVER)......so if you like that type of movie I'd say YES - see it for sure.

An Original, Fast Paced Adventure Feb. 14 2014
By London Fog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Before Mariah Mundi's parents go missing, his mother tasks him with keeping his brother safe, and entrusts both sons with the piece of an ancient Egyptian amulet. But he soon finds himself entangled in a quest for the fabled Midas Box when Felix, his younger brother, is kidnapped by the same organization that his parents have fallen afoul of. Help comes to him in the form of a man named Charity, who sets him up as a porter in the hotel where the villainous Otto Luger is keeping Felix, and where he learns the amulet may have a darker secret than he ever expected.

The story unfolds quickly, and for a low(ish) budget, independently produced film, I was left impressed with how high the standard was set from the scripting to wardrobe. The Victorian costumes are lovely, the paltry use of CGI not one bit detrimental to the visuals. The plot was original, where unexpected developments abounded, and while technically a young adult movie, it was more than mature enough for any age to enjoy. It may not be the absolute best in the genre when compared to other period sci-fi/adventure films, yet this still held its own nicely.

As a bonus, there was no standard Hollywood glorification of filth or depravity here - just a solid movie that provided me with a much needed steampunk fix.

Hero's quest with great cast that the whole family can enjoy Dec 27 2013
By Carmody Quinn - Published on Amazon.com

This movie brings to mind young captivating quest movies such as Golden Compass, Hugo or Narnia but with a dash of Indiana Jone's and Sherlock Holmes. It is set in Victorian England and starts out with Otto Lunger (Sam Neill) taking a map and blowing up the cave in which it was found (which include his cohorts in crime as well as Will Charity (Michael Sheen) who seems to be chasing him). Then cuts to Charles Mundi (Ioan Gruffudd) speaking on the acquisition of antiquities and their importance while teenage son Mariah (Aneurin Barnard) and younger brother wait through the interminable speech. Enter Will Charity seemingly unscathed at first glance only to have him collapse and taken to Charles Mundi's office with Mrs. Mundi in attendance to help their dear friend Charity. Charity warns them that Lunger has the map and that the Mundi's may not be safe. So Mrs. Mundi immediately shuffles off her 2 boys back to the hotel with words of warning to trust no one.
Mariah tries to protect his younger brother who is soon captured by Lunger's henchmen. Charity comes to Mariah's aide and gives him the history of his parents work with Charity as well as the sinister goals of Lunger and how Mariah can best try to find his brother.
I found this to be a good fast paced story that held my full attention. The acting was good although I always seem to like the acting of Sheen, Neill, Headey and Gruffudd, but had not seen Barnard (Mariah) before and found him to be very good as well. Barnard did look a little older than the 17 yr old Mariah he was playing but he did manage to pull it off fairly well. I quite enjoyed seeing Sheen change characters throughout.
There was a point in the movie where there was use of a steel cable that didn't quite fit in Victorian times and one has to stretch the imagination with the workings of elevators that seem a bit modern. But the movie is thoroughly captivating and enjoyable with a story that adults can appreciate while also suitable for young viewers.

The Adventurer: Curse of the Midas Box Jan. 28 2014
By Ani - Published on Amazon.com

A nice family movie with enough villains and mystery to please most anyone. Did not expect the caliber of acting or story, so am pleased we rented it. We like Sam Neil as a hero, but he makes a great villain in this movie. (Some mild violence and 'scary' parts (a well-done night monster), so not for little children--but great for 6 and up) Thanks
