Meh and double meh on this movie. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

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.

For being a kids-centric film, the picture is relatively slow and joyless.
