I like reviewing films on my blog as we get to watch them way before they are released on DVD.
Recently, we were invited to review The Adventurer – the Curse of the Midas Box.
It is a very interesting film and here is the synopsis –
As the steam age takes hold in Victorian London, Mariah Mundi’s life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. After an encounter with a charismatic stranger, Mundi follows a trail of clues to the majestic Prince Regent Hotel where he discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long lost artefact with the potential to grant limitless power at a devastating supernatural cost. With the fate of his world and his family at stake, Mundi will risk everything to unravel the Curse of the Midas Box!
Starring Aneurin Barnard (TV’s Moonfleet, The White Queen) as Mariah Mundi, THE ADVENTURER: THE CURSE OF THE MIDAS BOX also features a wealth of household names, including Michael Sheen (The Twilight Saga, Frost/Nixon), Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Escape Plan), Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four, The Secret Of Moonacre), Lena Headey (TV’s Game Of Thrones, 300: Rise Of An Empire) and Keeley Hawes (TV’s Spooks, Ashes To Ashes).
What we thought of it –
This film is suited to older children. Jadyn enjoyed it and was really into the story but Ethan (5) really didn’t find it so interesting. I think its more to do with the fact that you have to follow the film.
We thought the film was exciting and we were quite intrigued with the story. There are some scenes which younger children may not really like so it is perhaps wise use the advisory PG rating.
I loved the Victorian scene that were quite true to the age.
The DVD is being released today and I do recommend watching it.
I leave you with a clip from the film – it does seem interesting, doesn’t it?
