By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on October 17, 2012
Format: Amazon Video
The live action feature "Trooper and The Legend of the Golden Key" is a low-budget and relatively amateurish effort that still has a number of charms to recommend it. In fact, it is this homemade quality that I found oddly appealing. Before I comment on the actual film, however, I might point out that the DVD cover artwork might lead you to believe this is an entirely different movie. Trooper is shown in a Sherlock Holmes style get-up in a creepy outdoor setting that made me envision the moors from "The Hound of the Baskervilles." Trooper, in truth, is not much of a sleuth on his own and the action is driven by the human characters in a small town environment. There is a quiet homespun humor and folksy whimsy that make "Trooper" a perfectly acceptable entertainment for the younger kids. With a spirited boy lead, a challenge to authority, and a couple of talking pooches (in voice-over internal monologue only, there are no special effects to speak of), it's hard to be too critical despite the film's obvious shortcomings.

Trooper is a retired police dog who comes to be owned by a new boy in town. Hearing stories of a long lost treasure, this pair (aided by a frisky new friend) set about on a rather uneventful adventure. There is no real mystery, and no real cleverness--as I said, the sleuthing aspect that seems to be indicated is nowhere to be found. The town's mayor and niece are an evil pair and they plan to shut down the local kid's bookstore. One million dollars is needed to save it and wouldn't you know it, the alleged treasure has a street value of just that amount! The boy's parents are supportive and nice, the book proprietor is sweet, and the sheriff is a nerdy good ole boy.

If you are a fan of the classic mysteries including The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew or Tom Swift, this modest production of a small town mystery is your cup of tea.... or evening nightcap! Funny and hysterical in parts, yet engrossing from a young child's point of view, this modest production reminds me of the matinee serials produced for the double-bill motion pictures of yesterday. Endearing, fun, intriguing, this movie is fine entertainment and provides a great theme in appreciating and making the most of your surroundings.

The title of this review is a line from the movie Trooper and the Legend of the Golden Key. That line is the only thing I liked about the film. This movie had some of the worst acting I have ever seen in a children's film. I got it from our local library to watch with my kids because we also have a dog named Trooper. Thought it would be fun. Nope.
Aside from the absolutely pitiful acting (the worst of which comes from the lady who delivered the Ben Franklin line) the writing was just ridiculous. The lines the so called actors had to deliver were absurd and the plot was labored. The overly physical acting of many of the characters was sadly in sync with their lines. The setting looked fake, as if the movie makers couldn't afford a real set.
As another reviewer noted, the cover of the movie was misleading. I thought it might even be a bit scary for my kids at times based on the cover. I actually warned them about it just in case. Now that the pain of watching the movie is over, I can say the scary qualities of this movie were everything involving its creation, not any particular scene.
Just so I don't stand accused of missing the point, that this is after all a children's movie, I should say my kids did enjoy it. However they also enjoy much higher quality stuff also intended for their age group (Monsters Inc., the original Underdog cartoons from the 70s, Fraggle Rock, The Muppets, and Toy Story to name some). So, the way I look at it, if you can watch something of quality with your children (something EVERYONE will agree on) why not do it? I would not recommend this film at all, even if you got it from your local library.
