The film gradually reveals a lot of unsavory motives, which ultimately deflate the buoyant virtues on which the film had blithely coasted.
Boasting uncommonly handsome production values and a stellar cast, the awkwardly titled The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box nonetheless feels like a stillborn attempt at a franchise starter.
After a decent if formulaic setup, the story bogs down in dull midsection intrigue, and helmer Jonathan Newman doesn’t deliver as much excitement as expected in the climactic stretch.

There simply isn’t a whole lot of excitement being generated in this lackluster family adventure, though it tries oh so very hard.
Meh and double meh on this movie. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Previously known as "Mariah Mundi And The Midas Box," the retitling came with the straight-to-DVD release – presumably to help hide it from fans of G.P. Taylor’s original book.
"The Misadventurer" is more like it.
For being a kids-centric film, the picture is relatively slow and joyless.
