Archaeologist Dr. Michael Stone looked for the lost medallion his entire life, and now his son Billy has taken up the search. Amazingly, the medallion ends up in Billy's hands and a spontaneous wish in a precarious situation takes Billy and his best friend Allie, back 200 years to what they realize is a very different Aumakua Island. When Billy and his friends are not jumping off waterfalls, avoiding animal traps, crossing the ocean, sneaking through caves or escaping a prison they're facing their nemesis Cobra, who wants nothing more than for them all to disappear. With no other way to get home, and the wellbeing of the entire island resting on his shoulders, Billy must discover the key to reclaiming the medallion and its tremendous power. One way or another, this adventure will change Billy, and life on the island, forever. Written by
After being unable to arrange for a release of The Lost Medallion in 2010, Bill Muir took the 2011 version of the film on the U.S./Canada film festival circuit in 2011 to try to build buzz for the film. Film Festival screenings included the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival (March 5, 6 and 13 listing a 90 minute runtime in San Luis Obispo, California), the Orlando Film Festival (September 29 in Orlando, Florida), and the Heartland Film Festival (October 16, in Indianapolis, Indiana).

As an old GEEZER (I'll be 66 in a little over 2 months) I liked this movie. Having only seen the trailer on-line a couple weeks ago I pre-ordered the BD which I received yesterday and watched last night. It was entertaining and the story (which is for children and adult children like me!) was simple and yet adventurous. The acting was very good all around but it did have a typical stereotypes, fatboy is stumbly bumbly, girl screams too much, the usual for this type of especially Christian oriented movie.
I did not give it a 10 because of what it didn't include: no deleted scenes and there were several if you watch the "Making of...." feature.
No outtakes or blooper real which should be for a movie like this.
No interview with the main villain, Mark Dacascos one of my favorite action actors. Could not believe it!
On a final note: this movie was actually filmed in the summer of 2008 according to Mr. James Hong's own words in the "Making of...." feature. So why the 2013 release date? I imagine it had to do with finances but it does seem strange. I have heard of other movies that were finished and never released still sitting in a studio vault but usually because they are horrible and everyone knew it.
