The Adventurer - The Curse Of The Midas Box (2013/Image Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Main Program: A-

An ancient relic, a treasure to infinite wealth and power. 17 year old Mariah (Aneurin Barnard) finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and the supernatural when his parents disappear, and his brother Felix gets kidnapped. Following clues he journeys to a mysterious island where the legendary treasure is buried, the Midas Box. There he must find the clues to the treasure, save his family, and stop evil from taking over the world in Jonathan Newman's The Adventurer - The Curse Of The Midas Box (2013).

Mariah's world is turned upside down when he learns his parents are guardians of ancient relics with magical powers, their job is to prevent evil from finding and using the Midas Box, the power to change anything to gold. He and his brother Felix ((Xavier Atkins) unknown to them) are left with the keys to the treasure, but when his brother gets kidnapped he is forced to look for the Midas Box. He is also aided by a Will Charity (Michael Sheen), another guardian and together they must stop Otto Luger, a power hungry man who wants the Midas Box for himself to rule the world.

This movie was like a young Indiana Jones mixed with Harry Potter in that a young boy must find a lost ancient relic that could destroy the world if evil gets it's hands on it. Aside from constantly saving his brother (which happens way too often), he is joined by others who help him to become the adventurer and stop the forces of evil. Sam Neill, Lena Headey, Keeley Hawes, Ian Reddington and Ioan Gruffudd also star.

The he 1080p 2.35 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer and DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless sound mix here are top rate for a TV production and a pleasant surprise that makes this better than it might otherwise be. The only extra is The Making of the Adventurer featurette.
