László Pal's "Journey to Spirit Island" is one of those movies that thinks that it's offering social commentary but tries to hard to be a family-friendly adventure movie. This story of some kids trying to stop the development of an island in the Pacific Northwest could have been a lot more profound. The only notable things about it are the people involved in the production. Bettina Bush later became a singer. Frank Salsedo also played Ben in "Creepshow 2". And the cinematographer is the recently deceased Vilmos Zsigmond. He fled his native Hungary in the wake of the 1956 Soviet invasion that crushed the uprising and later won an Academy Award for "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". Basically, this was far below his standards.
Conclusion, just avoid it.
