A wonderful message of God's love.
DSlu
While this story is very predictable it is a great book for kids, and I can see how it would be a good movie as well.

A decently filmed and interesting kid's adventure fantasy that offers a message of doing the right thing, helping others and working together. They've added to the original text Alex Kendrick(Fireproof) inserts which emphasizes the message and God's love for us.

Daniel Anderson(Kendrick) starts the story with visiting a foster home. He tells the kids there a tale about Billy Stone(Billy Unger) and his discovery of a magical medallion sought by dark forces. In the midst of danger, Billy uses the medallion to travel back into time to an island struggling with a warlord who enslaves the people. It's a battle of good and evil, as Billy must seek help from unlikely friends.

Shot in beautiful island scenery and rainforest(the best part of the movie), the Dove approved flick shows a lot of potential. There's an orphan girl(Sammi Hanratty from American girl fame) who assists Billy. The acting, music, directing are fine. The kids zipline, jump off waterfalls, canoe through the jungle and fight lots of bad guys.

Threatening situations appear over and over but the kids triumph. There's no blood or language(remember "Goonies"). The bonus features show the making of the movie on location(nicely done), message from Alex Kendrick and family activity guide.

Being a Christian, I appreciate what Alex Kendrick tries to do, but to be honest, I found his inserts unnecessary. The orginal movie stands fine by itself as a kid's action flick with a moral. 3 1/2 stars

This movie is visually well done and professional-looking, but the plot is rather unbelievable and it's very cliche-ridden. (The villain's name is King Cobra? Really?)

It's not nearly as overtly Christian as Sherwood films like Fireproof or Courageous, but they do reference God and say a few things which sound rather Christian (though also some things that don't - at one point they said "the answer is INSIDE you" or something like that). So if you like to avoid preachiness, you'll probably appreciate that...but you won't appreciate the story.

If you're looking for some Christian entertainment that's well-written and edifies all ages, try the Torchlighters series. They're animated, and the animation isn't exactly exceptional, but story-wise they're MUCH better than this. Also, they're very overtly Christian.

I'm sorry that wasn't very informative. I'll just leave you with this...if you're not a kid, or not showing this to a kid, I would borrow it from a friend or the library if possible. Actually, I wouldn't watch it at all - except maybe to be amused by the lameness. But it still gets 3 stars, since it's a kids' film and I'm not really the target audience. If I was a kid, hey, it might be a solid five stars, for all I know.

It's not often that today's movie makers produce a movie targeted toward children that includes humor, adventure, drama, a good story line and is wholesome with a good message to boot. The Lost Medallion easily fits that bill.

Alex Kendrick, from Courageous, Fireproof and Facing the Giants, plays Daniel, a man who visits a foster care home to make a donation when he's roped into the telling the children at the home a story. Actually on his way to a baseball game, Daniel doesn't have a story in mind and isn't convinced he should set aside time to tell a story until he sees the three new residents at the home. Three residents who are no doubt struggling with the circumstances in their young lives.
Determined to make a difference, no matter how seemingly small, Daniel embarks on a story that not only engages the imaginations of his audience, but also includes the three new residents as the main characters.

Daniel tells of a lost medallion that 13-year-old Billy and his widowed father are attempting to find as a promise to Billy's mom, who lost her battle with cancer. Such determination leads to an adventure of a lifetime for Billy and his friend Allie, who find the medallion and inadvertently slip back into a world 200 years prior. When they lose the medallion to an evil leader, Billy and Allie, along with their new friends, will stop at nothing to retrieve the medallion. And in the process, they experience adventure, excitement, humor, sadness, and some great lessons to learn.

The Lost Medallion has some excellent discussion points. For example, the main characters are taught what it really means to serve others and put others as more important than yourself (Ephesians 6:7 and Philippians 2:3).

Loved the film-grand kids loved it. We need more like this! It was engaging, fast paced and had a very good lesson to communicate.

We rented this for a family movie night. It's hard to find movies that are engaging for my 12 year old and appropriate for my 6 year old. This was one of the few options I found. After watching the trailer, they agreed that it was worth watching at least once. We expected a good storyline with melodramatic acting and lots of cheesy moments. We got everything we expected.

The storyline was great. Kids standing up for what's right. Learning their own value as well as learning to value others. Their determination to see things through, even when it seems impossible. The only part that drug the movie down was the foster home scenes inserted into the movie (beginning and end scenes and sprinkled throughout). It was done to make the movie more Christian in nature. It just made it preachy - and not in a good way. Families could still learn the lesson intended without those scenes.

The cinematography was also good. The setting was stunningly gorgeous. Waterfalls, cliffs, forest, white beaches and turquoise water. Just gorgeous.

The acting was good for what the actors were given to work with. This is where the cheese came in. There were some parts that were so ridiculous, my oldest son and I cracked up laughing, even though they were supposed to be intense moments. As I was watching scene, a thought came to mind: There's more cheese in this movie than a block of Wisconsin cheddar.

There were also elements taken straight from other adventure movies. Homemade coconut bombs (and other contraptions) ala Swiss Family Robinson and a Star Wars Yoda-like teacher (his hair = Yoda's ears. Seriously.) are the two that stuck out to me. My oldest son referenced Indiana Jones and Narnia as well, but I don't remember the exact parts that led to those comparisons.
