Audience Reviews for By Dawn's Early Light

After 15 minutes you know exactly how the film is going to turn out. This is another variation on a often used plot. I will say, this version is pretty well done, mostly due to Richard Crenna?s well defined performance, great casting. Add some really fine cinematography and great location filming in British Columbia and it makes it all worth watching.
