The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box Movie

Definitely a steam-punk film with a decent cast and strange twists. As most of us know, Greek myth tells us that King Midas ruled the country of Phrygia and lived a rich life along with his beautiful daughter. However, he was extremely greedy so when an opportunity came, he got in the good favor of Dionysus and Midas was granted a wish for anything that he wanted. Midas chose to have the power to turn anything he touched into gold. At first, Midas believed it was a wonderful thing but it quickly became evident that it was a curse when he accidentally turned his daughter into a golden statue and could not eat food without turning it to gold. So the Midas Box is said to give the possessor the power to turn anything into gold. Naturally, someone wants the box for their own selfish reasons so it creates the conflict for this movie. Be warned, it is definitely a kid movie and they will absolutely love it. As the adult watching it, you may feel the movie is a bit lame and lacking in some areas but overall it will be good. I recommend this movie for a family.
