Audience Reviews for To Save the Children

Wow this Movie was very different experience seeing Richard Thomas playing a wacko. It is based upon true events. But I must admit they should have made it a tiny bit better, it is watchable. The acting was great but they should made it as said a tiny bit better maybe with a bit more details. I know Movies often based upon real events are more dramatic this was a tiny bit dissapoiting though. Even Robert Urich couldnt save it. I like Robert Urich, he was a great actor. R.I.P

A worthy tale to tell as it is based on a true story and quite a horrific one at that. Sadly though it wasn?t a film that particularly held you and it looked like a very low budge tv film.
