Had to watch "Keeping the Promise" in school after reading the book, which actually was pretty good. The movie had an okay cast, but the acting was absolutely horrific. There are no words to describe it.

Horrible. Cliched. Boring. Inaccurate.

This film is sometimes touching and well acted, but the film overstayed it's welcome an hour and a half in. This film could've and should've been shortened. Also the characters sometimes overreact to situations. The book was much better. You'd be better of reading that instead.

although it has a really good story line and everthing, even when I was little I could see the terrible acting in this!

I really, really liked this one. The actors were a bit contemporary, but they carried it off. I always like O'Toole and she breaks my heart in this one. I was very impressed with newcomer, Brendan Fletcher. Based on the book, "The Sign of the Beaver" by Elizabeth Speare. A great family film.

An admirable attempt to make meaningful film about people struggling with real life or death problems, and based on [i]The Sign of the Beaver[/i], well-regarded children's novel. Scene in which the mother (Annette O'Toole) realizes that her child, whom she is cradling in her arms, has just died, is heartwrenching. However, film suffers from being santized for modern TV audiences. Nobody was that clean in colonial times. With few exceptions, actors fail to convince that they are playing real people instead of performing for the camera in meaningful period piece.
