Sloppily made family movie
8 August 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The premise of this family movie - a sick child who is alienated from his father teaming up with an old man who's just been shoved into a nursing home, and going on a cross-country road trip - definitely had potential. Unfortunately, "The Dream Chasers" is executed in a way that frequently gives the movie a sloppy feel. Post-production looping (to overdub swearing and other dialogue) is very obvious, many times scenes seem to be missing, characters spout some unbelievable dialogue, and there are a couple of moments when it's daylight in one shot and suddenly dark in the next shot.

Not everything is bad about the movie. Harold Gould gives a warm and likable performance as the old man. He also generates some good chemistry with his child co-star. And while the movie seems to have been made by Christian filmmakers, they don't hit the audience over the head with religion. Still, it's not enough to save the movie. Kids might sit through this movie once, but it's unlikely they will ask to see it again.
