The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead TreasureClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Adventures of Mickey Matson and the Copperhead Treasure is a 2012 low-budget adventure mystery. There is frequent gun violence, as well as fighting with punches and kicks. In one instance, a creepy older character pulls a knife on two kids, and is later shown swinging a shovel at one of the kids. There is also strong regional stereotyping; the Southerners portrayed in the film are cliched dumb bad guys. The lead character is also coming to grips with the recent death of his grandfather. With better acting from the lead characters, this could have been a better movie, but the "community theater"-style acting tends to mar what could have been an interesting idea.
