Movie Info

This eighth adaptation of the timeless Mark Twain novel casts Elijah Wood as Huckleberry Finn, the half-literate son of a drunk who runs away from home and follows the Mississippi River with an escaped slave named Jim (Courtney S. Vance). Along the way, the duo encounter adventures with colorful characters like The King (Jason Robards) and the Duke (Robbie Coltrane), two con men who impersonate British visitors in order to swindle two sisters out of their fortune, and Susan Wilks (Laura Bundy),

Writer-director Stephen Sommers has made a conventional literal film, in which the acting of the two leads never rises above the mediocre, thus failing to endow the tale with the stirring mood that it deserves.

A really enjoyable film, and a loyal recreation of the literary classic

Twain's text defies all efforts to translate onto film. Without Huck's subjective narrative, the subtler points fall flat, leaving a drained and empty children's movie in its place.

Audience Reviews for The Adventures of Huck Finn

I remember liking this much more as a kid. Now, I just find the beginning and middle incredibly slow - especially the Wilkes brothers' imbroglio. Perhaps my erstwhile liking of the whole is influenced by my absolute love for the heartbreaking scene in which Jim almost gets lynched after Huck gets shot. *Tears!*

One of my favorites when I was younger and it still holds up today. The landscape is beautiful and the acting is great. Elijah Wood gave an amazing performance as Huck Finn and completely embodied the character. Stephen Sommers made a fun and lovable story even more accessible.

As it's based on one of my favorite books I watched this movie a lot when I was younger. It still holds up and has a cast that pulls off all the roles with ease.

Even in the early Walt Disney adaptation of Mark Twain?s classic novel, Elijah Wood stands out to be a very worthy leading role.

I have mixed feelings on this story, I understand the story depicts the timing and history of the tale, but as Walt Disney is aimed at kids, this may be a child?s first knowledge of slavery, I just wouldn?t want to be the one to have to explain it. I used to watch the series on television many years ago ? I hadn?t remembered the slave part and that really took the adventure out of how I'd remembered it.
