Movie Info

Ancient mysteries. Powerful evil. And a fearless hero's quest through a fantastical realm of steam-powered wonders and sinister magic... In THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX, seventeen-year-old Mariah Mundi's life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth - but also devastating supernatural power. With the fate of his world, and his family at stake, Mariah will risk everything to unravel the Curse of the Midas Box! (c) RJ

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.

As a Part One it effectively disseminates exposition with enough adventure to keep our attention on these characters coming into their own.

The Film Stage

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.

Audience Reviews for The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box

½

'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.
