Audience Reviews for The Golden Seal

(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] A decent family film. Good cast.

A family, children's film that tells what makes adults different from the children. A so-called mythical golden seal is legend in the icy waters of the Alaskan wilderness. Not one for watching a not so good child actor throughout a film, I quickly lost interest in this otherwise high nature film. Maybe it will be different for you. Obviously an inspirational and moving film. Director: Frank Zuniga Main Cast: Steve Railsback, Penelope Milford, Michael Beck, Torquil Campbell, Sandra Seacat
