Fantastic Film!
29 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

I collect all versions of Huckeberry Finn & Tom Sawyer films. The only equal of this film is that with Elijah Wood. Patrick Day was brilliant. It is a real pity we do not have more from him as a child actor.

This film would be great for any family. It is less restricted than the Elijah Wood version and more accurate in that respect. The N word is used as it was during the those times. The political correctness that keeps it out of modern films is not present here. That is not to say that the word is appropriate in modern times. It is to say that we should recognize how it was used in the past. Political correctness can be carried too far.

So, if you want an excellent version of the Huckleberry Finn film, this film is a must. It has just become available on Amazon.com
