Radio Flyer Reviews

May 20, 2013
The nostalgic details are charming, there are excellent if skimpy effects (a giant buffalo, a Bigfoot cameo) and the children (Elijah Wood, Joseph Mazzello) are quite wonderful, but it's a puzzling, borderline distasteful film.

One of the most touching films ever made. A must-see

Despite the flaws, Evans's thoughtful script and the unclichTd performances of Wood and Mazzello exert a powerful grip. The film stays with you.

Donner has never been known as one who directs with a light touch, and Radio Flyer suffers from the same sense of weightiness that has bogged down so many of his other pictures.

It all makes for a soaring -- and tearful -- ending.
