Audience Reviews for The River Wild

    A few times the movie flirts with being a serious examination of masculinity's futility, but ultimately its just a silly thriller that's well directed and acted enough to warrant a viewing.

    Formula thrillers aren't quite my cup of tea. I can't ever really get as into the action as much as I'd like, and I find myself, for the most part, bored. On the other hand, "The River Wild" is almost never boring. It maintains a consistent tone of peril, its characters always being thrust into precarious positions. While the storyline isn't fantastic, I liked the music and the camerawork -- especially the camerawork. There's not much rewatch value here, but its enjoyable nonetheless.

    Exciting, but not rewatchable
