Movie Review Friday: Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure

Welcome to my new Movie Review Friday feature! Every once in a while, I will bring you a family-friendly review of a featured film that I have watched, and think that you, my readers, will enjoy as well. This week, my featured film is Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure.

Recently, I had the chance to watch Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure, the second film in the Mandie movie series. This film comes as a sequel to Mandie and the Secret Tunnel, a video in which Mandie discovers her real identity and a family secret hidden since her birth. Now, in Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure, Mandie and her mom secretly follow Mandie's Uncle John on a dangerous expedition to find a Cherokee treasure hidden for centuries. Recruiting her friends Polly and Joe, Mandie and her friends are sure to make for an exciting twist or turn every once and a while doing things their own way. But in the end, Mandie is forced to meet the one person she never wanted to meet and discover more family secrets that will change her life.

The main thing I enjoyed about Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure was the character lineup. Every character chosen for the film was perfect, and their personalities fit the story line perfectly as well. Also, I very much enjoyed the suspense, leaving one with no clue about the unexpected twists that lie in every corner. The family-friendliness was greatly appreciated as well, as you didn't have to think that something perverted was about to show up on your screen.

Because Mandie and the Cherokee treasure is part two in the Mandie movies series, I highly recommend you check out Mandie and the Secret Tunnel before this film. However, one may be able to pick up the story line from the short recap presented at the beginning of the movie if necessary. I honestly loved the fact that this film was a direct continuation from movie one, and did not occur years down the road when Mandie is all grown up.

The suspense, the excellent characters, the intriguing story line, the awesome sets, and all the extras made for a superb movie! I am so glad I had the chance to watch Mandie and the Cherokee Treasure, and I recommend that you check it out as well. You will be laughing your head off in certain parts, as well as sitting at the edge of your seat in others. It is well worth the watch!

  6. Jay,

    Thanks for the review. I'll have to check this out with my kids. I like the idea of movie review Friday, I just hope you don't run out of material. Have you seen "The Imposter" starring Kevin Max with Downhere music in it? If not let me know and I'll send it to you. I would like to see your review of it.
