Marvellous outdoors in Aleutian islands and lively musical score
14 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is the story of a small boy's innocence, he's living with his parents(Penelope Milford and Railsback) circa of the sea coast . He's a lonely ten years old boy when spontaneously finds a legendary golden seal and her newborn pup. But the greed for her valuable pelt does the hunters, including his father(Steve Railsback),natives and ambitious poacher(Michael Beck) set out in pursuit the seal. The golden seal and her cub are hunted for a huge bounty on her head and the mythological legend.

This enjoyable movie contains spectacular outdoors, ordinary animal footage, good feeling and a little bit of drama. The film is shot in Aleutian Islands, Alaska and British Columbia, Canada with sensational landscapes.The best of the picture are the awesome outdoors and sensible soundtrack. Acceptable acting by quatrain protagonist, the little boy, Torquil Campbell; the daddy, Steve Raisback(Barbwire, Lifeforce; the mum(Penelope Milford) and the hunter, Michael Beck(Warriors,Xanadu) . The flick is rated ¨parents guide¨ because there are strong fighting and shooting for the hunters wishing to kill the seals. The motion picture is regularly directed by Frank Zuniga. He's usually director of children and youngsters movies such as Grey wolf, Mustang and Further adventures of the wilderness family and occasionally director for television as Disneyland episodes. Rating: Passable and entertaining.
