Since his father is wounded, he has to conquer the jungle alone in search for help. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Some pretty pictures
26 November 2006 | by (West Mids - Inglaterra) – See all my reviews

Danny Is a generally annoying American kid arriving In Oz to re-find his absent old man (a steroetyped bloke), by the end he's become a man having endured his "Initiation" and everything ends bonza. The basic narrative Is fine even If signposted for the hard of thinking(me), all the characters play out exactly as they look they would. Rarely do you believe this Is a not a made for TV representation of Australia although much of the scenery particularly during the later part Is outstanding. The good bits: His old mans line of work Is a great career and the Kulu guy Is oddly endearing with a seriously Infectious cackle.

Not bad
