The River Wild Reviews

Josh Larsen

Another 1990s domestic parable chastising workaholic dads, The River Wild also functions as a gorgeous travelogue and a Meryl Streep action film.

Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

A buff Streep vs. bad guy Bacon on a wild river journey in which good acting overcomes several cliches.

Terrible "suspense" movie. Predictable and no action until the end.

It looks like an action movie, sounds like an action movie, but there's a lot more going on here.

The title promises more than the film delivers.

[Streep's] role is ridiculous, and the scenes depicting her marital crisis play like a hokey prelude to the inevitable reconciliation.

The perfect high old time for audiences in the mood to be tossed into the spin cycle for a pulse-pounding thrill ride.

O'Neill proves to be a squeamish screenwriter. He doesn't allow his villain to do anything truly unnerving until the story's nearly done.

Constructed from so many ideas, characters and situations recycled from other movies that all the way down the river I kept thinking: Been there. Done that.

If watched from a mildly amused, forgiving distance, the movie has its enjoyable moments -- good and campy.

The real action star to threaten Bruce Willis' Die Hard crown and make us forget Sylvester Stallone's Cliffhanger and Demolition Man one-two punch from last year has emerged. And it's Meryl Streep.

The thriller framework is still familiar, but the results exhibit a welcome freshness.
