This movie feels like the work of a beginner director or someone making a movie just to use Canadian film tax writeoffs. The story is ho-hum. It is interesting watching a 15 year old Kirsten Dunst and Zachary from Home Improvement.
Kirsten Dunst crashlands in the Canadian wild with the oldest kid from Home Improvement. After taking 15 seconds getting over the deaths of their pilot and guardian, they follow the whims of a weirdo native named Koronesta (or something - I swear they pronounce it 5 different ways) who seems to have been living in the boonies by himself for too long. He speaks fractured English like an Indian on F-Troop, refers to a local Kodiak bear as his grandfather, and looks like he was born closer to Monterey than Moose Jaw. The poachers they encounter provide some fun with their hilarious over-the-top performances that scream BAD GUYS as loudly as the military in Avatar. To be fair, as a family movie it's not that bad and sends a positive environmental message, and a young Dunst gets one of her earliest lead roles and proves her mettle as an actress by having to say seemingly half her lines while squinting to keep the sun out of her eyes.
