The story begins at a small foster home for children. Children are playing in the backyard when Daniel (Alex Kendrick) drops in with donations for the home. Even though he’s on his way to a baseball game, the children rope him into telling them a story. He concedes to their demands. He notices that not all of the children are so thrilled. Billy is a quiet shy boy who apparently never talks. Allie is a lost girl who feels as if she was made by accident. Then there’s Hoku, the bully who likes to be in control. Daniel decides to tell a story that relates to each one of the children in the foster home.
Daniel begins the tale of two 13-year-old friends, Billy and Allie, who are on the search for a long-lost medallion that has magical powers. Little do they know is that a mysterious evil man is also looking for the medallion, and he’s using Billy and Allie to get to it. Billy and Allie find a clue they think will help them locate the medallion. The clue takes them into the jungle, where they finally uncover the coveted medallion.
Billy decides he’s going to take it home to show his father. When Billy and Allie arrive at his house, some henchmen have Billy’s father tied up. To avoid being captured, Billy, with the medallion around his neck, accidentally wishes himself and Allie back in time to where it all began.
Billy and Allie are now in a strange land where an evil warlord named Cobra is seeking the medallion for power. Billy is forced to give up the medallion after Allie is captured in order to save her life. Now, Billy, Allie and some new friends they met along the way must work together to get back the medallion so they can go back to the present.
THE LOST MEDALLION: THE ADVENTURES OF BILLY STONE is an action packed family adventure. The young actors have great onscreen presence that delivers the majority of the movie. The production quality is top notch and leagues ahead of other movies in the Christian family market. The central theme of the story is that everyone is created with a purpose and if you work together, you can accomplish great things. The story avoids overstating its message while still giving great biblical lessons for children. Alex Kendrick’s character delivers a nice finishing touch on the tale by sharing that God has a purpose and plan for child. THE LOST MEDALLION is a wonderful family film. The only caution is for very young viewers who might find the warlord villain a bit scary.
