Silence of the North...one of the best adventure movies of all time!
This movie is one of the best adventure movies that we've ever watched, as a family. The only thing we did not like was the G-Damn's and a very few other not so nice words...but we say again...very few. This movie is well worth watching and owning. The opening/closing song is also a very catchy one...we love it! If you like the outdoors and also to see that we, as in all of us, aren't the only ones with problems...you will for sure like this exciting and interesting movie.
The best part of this movie is to see that although we have problems in life, when we stick with it, we can overcome them, when it's possible. This movie reminds us of "The Adventures of the Wilderness Family" One, Two and the third one which is called "Mountain Family Robinson" (The family's last name). They are 1970 vintage but are awesome movies, as well. These three were voted the best movies, made by an independent studio, for all of the 1970's. These four movies have a lot of outdoor interests. Both family's have their very scary moments. There are different sorts of tragedies. There is sadness in both of these movies but they are both balanced by the other side of life, as well. All of these are the way we would like to live...away from the city and it's polluted air, foods, medications, allergies and live more like people did, that come from earlier North America. If you watch this movie,you will never be sorry... (Can you tell that this is my first review ever? Ha! Ha!)
