The Adventures of Huck Finn Reviews

'90s Disney adaptation has some peril, violence.

It's a delightful romp. The director and adaptor, Stephen Sommers, has filleted the book's key episodes and presents them at a whirling, compulsive pace.

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

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.

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.

I admired the performances, and Sommers' sense of time and place, and I hope the movie guides more people toward the book -- which contains values that sometimes seem as rare today as when Jim was first teaching them to Huck.
