Storyline

Archaeologist Dr. Michael Stone looked for the lost medallion his entire life, and now his son Billy has taken up the search. Amazingly, the medallion ends up in Billy's hands and a spontaneous wish in a precarious situation takes him and his best friend Allie back 200 years to what they realize is a very different Aumakua Island. When Billy and his friends are not jumping off waterfalls, avoiding animal traps, crossing the ocean, sneaking through caves or escaping a prison, they're facing their nemesis Cobra, who wants nothing more than for them all to disappear. With no other way to get home, and the well-being of the entire island resting on his shoulders, Billy must discover the key to reclaiming the medallion and its tremendous power. One way or another, this adventure will change Billy and life on the island forever. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In an interview, S David Acuff asked Bill Muir what went wrong with the 2011 "director's cut" version of the film that kept it from succeeding. The short version of Bill Muir's answer is that it lacked a brand sufficient to attract enough film-goers to make the movie financially feasible to distribute. Earlier in the interview Bill Muir had mentioned that, at the end of editing, the movie was clearly targeting 6- to 13-year-olds. The biggest brand for that age group is Disney, but Disney shuns Christian themes. An alternative to eliminating Christian references was to incorporate a wrap around and elevate some of the movie's themes. Alex Kendrick had been successful in getting some Christian movies distributed, so Muir asked Kendrick to appear in the wrap around, essentially making Kendrick the brand. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 8 mins) Allie scares off the warriors with firecrackers, but it's unclear how she had them or how she lit them, since it's doubtful she had either matches or a lighter or firecrackers on her when she fell back through time with Billy. See more »

"The Lost Medallion" is an Indiana Jones-type adventure film for the pre-teen set. It's a tale of a young archaeologist's son who finds a magic medallion that takes him and an orphan girl on a fantastical journey into the past. Or maybe the more apt reference would be to the "Narnia" films, since this one too features a none-too-subtle Christian subtext buried beneath the action-movie surface.

The movie is probably acceptable for its target audience (though I don't want to sell them short), since the violence is kept to a reasonable minimum (though it isn't nonexistent) and the story is filled with the requisite edifying moral messages one expects from works aimed at children. But adults will have a hard time overlooking the corny dialogue, cheesy line-readings, paper-tiger villains, goofball second bananas and lowbrow humor that permeate the film.

Some impressive visuals, though.
