Not really spiritual...
March 6, 2017
My wife and I love Christian movies, as they have blessed us and our family for years. We bought "The Lost Medallion" with high hopes. We are normally very gracious and charitable in reviews of Christian products, however, this movie was more disappointing than inspiring for us.
I know other reviewers have positive reviews - which is wonderful for them. For us, even with Alex Kendrick, it was just a family fantasy movie, with a few spiritual statements added - that could disappear and the story would stand. In other words, the spiritual aspects are lost in the fantasy story about magic, time travel, and a "hero kids are stronger and smarter than adults" story.
On the positive side, it is a higher quality production, nice special effects, and visually attractive. If you want a fun, clean fantasy/magic family movie, you may like this. Our low rating is strictly from a spiritual point of view - it is simply disappointing on that level. In our opinion, it is NOT a spiritual movie.
We could not and would not recommend this movie to families in our congregation.
