THE PLOT:

Chandler Jarrell is a private detective specializing in missing children hired to find a powerful child who has been kidnapped by forces who will see him dead, Chandler agrees to help even though he doesn't believe in the legend of the Golden Child or magic.

But Chandler enters a world beyond his wildest dreams of nightmares, a world of magic and of monsters. A world that could end his life if he's not careful.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

Okay, even though this is my favorite Eddie Murphy movie ever it's not perfect. There are some slight annoying factors in it, his pig pigheadedness about the supernatural for one. But that passes and that's why I give THE GOLDEN CHILD 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd on this one, this is a very cool movie that recycle many of the cast from BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA but that's okay. The story works and the cast works, it's a cool movie that's worth watching. 9 STARS
