Overall, The Lost Medallion is a decent film for children and younger viewers. It should help parents distract their kids benignly for an afternoon, but it’s unlikely to create any real waves in the cinematic ocean.

CAUTIONS:

  • Language/Profanity: Squeaky Clean
  • Drugs/Alcohol: None
  • Sex/Nudity: A boy is briefly shown shirtless, some island woman where native clothing but nothing is shown, celebratory dancing.
  • Violence: Some Kung Fu action, the medallion’s rightful king is killed off-screen, a man is killed by a poisoned fingernail, a few men are thrown into a bottomless pit, one character is killed after jumping in front of an arrow, a short car chase, a man threatens another with a knife, a man is choked to death, firecrackers are set off.
  • Religion/Spiritual Themes: Christian themes are sprinkled throughout the entire movie: Alex teaches a girl that God doesn’t make anyone by accident; selfish Huko learns that a true king must first learn to serve others; the medallion grants wishes but only to those with a selfless heart; when asked why he would die for them one character responds, "because long ago someone died for me;" lessons against pride and selfishness.
