Critic Reviews for The Adventures of Huck Finn

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (8)

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.

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.
