Great, pure cinematic brilliance
1 August 2002 | by (goole, east yorkshire) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this film and i loved it, i love this story but the way that it was portrayed in this paticular film version was wonderful. I loved the way that Patric Day[huck finn] and Sam-Art Williams[jim] interacted throughout the movie, Patric Day brought a great deal to the character of Huck which can only be matched by that of Elijah Wood in the 1993 version that did not follow the same story, the blue paint scene was a paticular favorite of mine because it brought a great deal of comic value to the play which only complimented Mark Twain's original script. This story fills you with so many different emotions i sometimes don't know weather to laugh or cry, its a masterpiece.
