The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box Reviews

The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box is an example of what happens when the filmmakers are less than scrupulous with the story's connective tissue and don't display affinity for the characters.

Forgettable and flat, the film tries and fails at being an adventure that the entire family can enjoy.

"This is horrible!" Sacha the seamstress says. "I have to get out of here!" She stole the thoughts right out of my brain as I watched Jonathan Newman's dismally directed, inert action movie The Adventurer: Curse of the Midas Box.

This elaborately constructed, visually appealing, well-cast adventure film should have worked, but is sunk by a singularly unmusical script and perfunctory handling.
