14 December 2007 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This is the story of a small boy's innocence , he's living with his parents (Penelope Milford and Steve Railsback) next to the sea coast . He's a lonely ten-year-old boy who 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 an ambitious poacher (Michael Beck) set out in pursuit the seal . The golden seal and 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 and British Columbia with sensational landscapes . The best parts of the picture are the awesome outdoors and the sensitive soundtrack by Dana Kaproff . Acceptable acting by quatrain protagonist , the little boy , Torquil Campbell ; the daddy , Steve Raisback (Barbwire , Lifeforce) ; the mum well performed by Penelope Milford and the hunter , Michael Beck (Warriors , Xanadu) . The flick is rated ¨parents guide¨ because there are strong fighting and shooting executed by the mean hunters wishing to kill the seals . Colorful cinematography sot on location in Aleutian Islands, Alaska, USA and British Columbia, Canada . Agreeable and vivid musical score by Dana Kraproff . The motion picture was professionally directed by Frank Zuñiga . He's usually director of children and youngsters movies such as ¨Grey Wolf¨ , ¨Mustang¨ , ¨Heartbreaker¨ and ¨Further adventures of the wilderness family¨ , and occasionally director for television as Disneyland episodes . Rating : Passable and entertaining .
