Good movie that is filled with sadness, but special for the message it brought and the awareness it created.
8 June 2001 | by (Oakwood, Virginia USA) – See all my reviews

I remember when this TV movie aired I was in kindergarten and in fact my teacher even suggested that all of us small children watch this movie with our parents. Every parent with a small child feared that this tragedy would happen and what a nightmare it would have been to have a child abducted and murdered. The whole country was at this time bringing the missing children issue to the attention of people. All of this panic and awareness because of the abduction and murder of a little boy named Adam Walsh in Broward County, Florida. Thankful that this boys father John Walsh brought this case so much attention and awareness that a movie titled Adam was made for TV to expand the concern for children all across America. This movie is sad due to the death of a small child but brings a good message of awareness and concern for our children and any victim of crime for that matter. I wish some network would show Adam again I would like to see it over.
