Eddie Murphy follows up his hot streak of BEVERLY HILLS COP and TRADING PLACES with this mystical action-comedy directed by Michael Ritchie. Murphy plays Chandler "Chan" Jarrell, a man who tracks down lost children for a living. When the beautiful Kee Nang (Charlotte Lewis), a Tibetan priestess, approaches him with the flattering yet disarming declaration that he is "the chosen one," his quest for the illustrious golden child (J. L. Reate) begins. Along the way, Chan uncovers secrets within Chinatown's underbelly and encounters a seemingly endless parade of bizarre and dangerous situations, most often spearheaded by Sardo Numpsa (Charles Dance), the devil's main henchman. It's up to Chan to locate the golden child, then protect him from the evil Sardo, who won't rest until he sees to it that the boy is in his clutches.Not surprisingly, THE GOLDEN CHILD is a comedian's showcase. As Murphy ad-libs his way to the rescue, it appears that Ritchie allowed him the comfort of improvisation throughout the film's production, and that trust in his star pays off. The result is a laugh-out-loud crowd pleaser with a heavy dose of action that alludes to the mystical Asian dramas of the past.

Eddie Murphy plays the character in his classic form before the days of The Nutty Professor and Norbit. There are some other funny characters throughout the film. A movie like this would not be considered as funny these days, but I enjoyed and would recommend it.
beautiful, romantic, conquest of good over evil with a little magic thrown in and you have entertainment. My wife saw the title and had to see it,
afterwards she said she enjoyed it as much as the first time. What can I say "women and kids", can't beat them have to join them, it leaves you feeling, uh oh I don't know.... good!
