exciting and interesting
21 November 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This micro budget kids pic from 1981 is an excellent small film that entertains and excites until the end credits. Then-unknown young thesp Simone Buchanan is a girl using her wits to outsmart plausible baddies in the Australian outdoors. Henri Szeps, well known tele star adds likable adult interest and the modest production values do not detract in any way. Almost unreleased in cinemas, it was part of a package of kids pix made by a private film company headed by TV producer Brendan Lunney. Most films in Australia are made with Government money. RUN REBECCA RUN has a great chase in the finale and some creepy moments by feral MAD MAX 2 tot Emil Minty in one of his few screen appearances. RUN REBECCA RUN is a good kids film and they will easily enjoy. So will Mums and Dads.
