Some 'Ancient' artifact's are never meant to be found.
'Otto Lugar' owns a hotel on an Island that he uses as a cover in his pursuit
of the long-lost 'Midas Box' that belonged to the legendary 'King Midas' centuries
before, he craves the power he believes the box will give him.
'Mariah Mundi' and his brother 'Felix' have each been given one half of a device
by a friend of their father 'Charity'
'Lugar' needs the device the brothers are holding to finally find the 'Midas Box'
he sends two of his rough-necks to find the brothers, he is already responsible
for the disappearance of the boys parents.
'Lugar's' men manage to capture 'Felix' but 'Mariah' is helped to evade capture
with the help of 'Charity'
After some information is obtained 'Mariah' travels to the Island to take up a
position as a porter at 'Lugar's' hotel, hoping to find 'Felix' and what has become
of their parents.
'Under cover the disguised 'Charity' turns up at the hotel to perform as a magician
and of course watch over 'Mariah.
'Mariah' closes in on both the whereabouts of his brother and the location of the
legendary 'Midas Box'
Much danger is involved 'Lugar' and his partner 'Monica' are treacherous adversary's.
He who owns the 'Midas Box' rules the World.
The Cast includes 'Aneurin Barnard' (Mariah) 'Michael Sheen' (Charity) 'Lena Headey'
(Monica) 'Sam Neill' (Otto Lugar) also 'Ioan Gruffudd' as the father.
A magical fantasy adventure ok for family viewing (maybe a little dark for ''younger'
viewers (under 10 maybe) It's a decent watch but does perhaps loose it's way a little
during the middle of the film.
The film is region 'A' **
Special Features :-
* The making of the Adventure ~ The curse of 'The Midas Box'

4.0 out of 5 stars An Original, Fast Paced Adventure 27 April 2014
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money and time 16 Sep 2014

The CD is not settled for region one as is said. Then if you buy the universal cd player the cd stop after less than a minute play. Waste of money and time. Let's hope that I will see my money back. I already send them back the cd.

I cant play the film because it's the wrong region, which was not advertised as such very well, and the seller wont refund or take it back unless I pay for half. Not satisfied.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good - worth seeing adventure movie. 3 Jan 2014
By Conservative girl - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Texture 23 Jan 2014
By Glen L. Pennington - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hero's quest with great cast that the whole family can enjoy 27 Dec 2013
By Carmody Quinn - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
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.
