There simply isn't a whole lot of excitement being generated in this lackluster family adventure, though it tries oh so very hard.

The quest for the Midas Box never seems like more than a poor man's plot-engine substitute for Tolkien's One Ring.

Michael Sheen, Lena Heady and Sam Neill are among the big names expecting a franchise, but they'll be lucky to get a mid-morning TV slot, let alone a sequel.

Total Film

The visually stylish film feels like a combination of elements from other fantasy adventures, yet turns out more muddled and convoluted than suspenseful.

Solid Victorian adventure is too dark for younger kids.

Common Sense Media

Unsophisticated and cartoonish, but well-cast and kid-friendly in an old-fashioned way.

The quest for the midas box, Well it just leaves you making your owb quest in order to make this dull movie watchable , Fantastic British cast, Sam Neill looks HOT but this film, sadly is not!

'The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box' (2014) fails to absorb enough tension to work on a dramatic level, with lazy writing and cheap visuals. Aneurin Barnard (in role of Mariah Mundi) is probably the only actor who turns in an affirmative performance out of the group of well-known actors like Michael Sheen, Sam Neill, Lena Headey, and Ioan Gruffudd who all just seem to be there. This is not the greatest kids' flick by far, but I think kids are the audience this is most suitable for and may find it the most enjoyable.

Michael Sheen was great fun in this movie. It was a little slow in the beginning, but it had a great sequel inspiring ending. Overall this is worth a watch to see these actors in some unusual roles.
