Eddie Murphy plays a detective with a speciality of finding lost children. He is told he is the 'Chosen one' who will find and protect the Golden Child, a Bhuddist mystic who was kidnapped by an evil sorcerer. Murphy disbelieves the mysticism but finds more and more evidence of demon worship as he investigates. Written by

In the Yellow Dragons clubhouse, when one of the bikers rides a motorcycle, backwards, out through a wall, the close-ups of the handlebar and engine/gearcase are of an older (1968-1970) Triumph, yet when it passes through a room before hitting the wall, it's a newer Harley-Davidson. See more »
Tell me about the Golden Child.
Every thousand generations, a perfect child is born, a Golden Child. He has come to rescue us.
Rescue us from what?
He is the bringer of compassion. If he dies, compassion will die with him.
So, if something happens to the kid, the whole world goes to hell?
The world will become hell.

"The Golden Child" was Eddie Murphy's first film since his megahit "Beverly Hills Cop". And even though it's not as good as "Cop", it's a fun comic adventure. Murphy stars as a finder of lost children who's assigned a most unusual case. His assignment: to find the title character, a child with mystical powers. This movie could have been titled "Beverly Hills Cop and the Temple of Doom" since parts of this movie plays like a Spielbergian adventure, kinda like an Indiana Jones comedy. It's got comedy with laughs, and adventure with special effects. Lots of fun.
