November 30, 2017
Streep catches the exhilaration of a housewife high on a little danger -- and of an upmarket actress in her first action movie.
February 29, 2012
Another 1990s domestic parable chastising workaholic dads, The River Wild also functions as a gorgeous travelogue and a Meryl Streep action film.

If watched from a mildly amused, forgiving distance, the movie has its enjoyable moments -- good and campy.

The real action star to threaten Bruce Willis' Die Hard crown and make us forget Sylvester Stallone's Cliffhanger and Demolition Man one-two punch from last year has emerged. And it's Meryl Streep.

A stale product of Movieland mechanics, diluted from Griffith's Way Down East and John Boorman's Deliverance, this picture is just one more reason to worry about an outstanding talent.
