      Audience Member Are you here to tell us a story? A man swings by a foster home to drop off some donations and discovers the weekly storyteller called out sick. He notices a lot of children that feel sorry for themselves and decides to fill in this week for the storyteller. He tells the tale of three children that resemble kids at the orphanage and takes them on an adventure with a lost medallion that will hopefully turn some kid's lives around. "I'm an idiot." "That's the first correct thing you've said all day." Bill Muir delivers The Medallion: the Adventures of Billy Stone in his directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is just okay and not as action packed as other films in this genre. The story within the story was below average as well. The acting was okay and the cast includes Billy Unger, Sammi Hanratty, James Hong, Alex Kendrick, Jansen Panettiere, and William Corkery. "Do you think God ever makes people by accident?" I found this on Netflix and decided to give it a shot as a fun family film. This was a bit disappointing. I did like the overall story, but the main film was a bit bland. Overall, this is worth a viewing once with the family, but only if there isn't something better available. "Some of us learn faster than others." Grade: C- Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member My children saw this at a friend's house and wanted us to watch it together on our Sunday Family Film Night. They were absolutely thrilled to share it with us, believing it to be a super exciting film that wasn't even a cartoon! The set-up scenes of the film were a little nauseating. A handyman gets roped into telling a story to a group of foster kids who are desperate for something to believe in. Predictably, the main characters of this "spontaneous" tale are based upon the kids in the room in order to teach them all some vital life lesson. Once the actual story began in earnest, it was a bit more intriguing. It was great to share a fantasy adventure with the kids; and I am always on the lookout for live-action, family-oriented films. There were moments when I thought it was actually an okay movie, but many more times when I silently brooded on its pervasive amateur quality. The girls seemed to enjoy the story just as much the second time around. I'm sure I would have championed it at their age as well. I kindly kept my opinions to myself. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good, I guess... Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A kids version of Indiana Jones. Its not great and it's very amateurish but kids will enjoy it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member OFFENSIVELY TERRIBLE !!

      Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com The film's best performance is unquestionably that of James Hong, a complete and utter delight as Faleaka. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Sep 14, 2020 Full Review Grace Montgomery Common Sense Media Formulaic adventure film for kids is fun, but a little scary. Rated: 3/5 Jul 8, 2014 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper jackiekcooper.com An okay movie for the younger kids but anyone over thirteen will find it amateurish at best. Rated: 5/10 Mar 6, 2013 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Should have stayed lost. Mar 1, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews
