A slender, honest study of a boy learning to be a man his own way.

Oct 30, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Book-based movie has quiet charm, some intense scenes.

Feb 23, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The homage to nature pic appeals to youngsters and boy adventurers, but left me yearning for a safer story for a 13-year-old boy.

Aug 30, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

An absolutely dreadful film that will appeal only to grown-ups who saw it when it was new.

Good family viewing that will delight kids and interest grown-ups as well.

Considering when it was made, it was a good movie. It's takes you on a wilderness adventure with a lot of precious animals along the way!
