Watchable True Story of a Snowbound Family
9 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

I caught this on the late late movie and it was all right. My first complaint is it takes to long to get to the part where they are trapped in the snow. The second problem is a technical one. There are many scenes when they are trapped in the snow and they are talking and there is no steam coming out of their mouths. I had a hard time feeling they were really freezing to death. Also, there are times the movie seems unbelievable, but since it is a true story I guess I have to believe it. Now on the positive side the acting is pretty good and it is uplifting to see what someone willing to do to save their family. Final analysis: it is worth watching if you can't sleep.
