Surprisingly compelling
23 July 2013 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

It's pretty obvious while watching it that the made-for-TV movie "Young Pioneers" was a pilot for a series, which did become a brief reality a couple of years later. But don't worry, this movie is able to stand on its own without seeing the follow-up series. The movie is kind of predictable, and the leads seem to be too old to be playing characters who are in their teens. But all the same it turns out to be surprisingly interesting. It shows the various problems settlers of the era had without laying on the problems too thick. The movie also seems to like its characters, not just with the young couple, but various people that they encounter along the way. It's also fun to see a pre-fame Robert Hays in a small role. This movie is not a masterpiece, but it gets the job done well.
