A wonderful and underrated classic! First things first, R.I.P. Brad Renfro. His performance was splendid. Back to the review, the film is an adaptation loosely based on "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" yet it is quite loyal to its source material, coming from someone who has read the book on more than one occasion. I enjoyed this movie as a kid and watching it again, now as an adult, I can safely say that Mark Twain would've loved this project!
The movie is about two friends (Tom & Huck), who witness a horrific murder of a victim at a graveyard, after an argument over greed and a map that leads to treasure goes wrong. The kids are in peril when they realize that the killer is at large. Huck initiates an oath with Tom to keep their mouths shut. Tom has feelings for a bratty chick named Becky and Huck is disreputable to the town-people. Things start to backfire between Tom and Becky, while the sacred oath hangs between silence or the truth that can save a wrongfully accused defendant from being prosecuted.
I also want to point out that the actor who played Tom's brother, Syd, did a great job and was the same person who was Uh-Huh in "The Little Rascals". In conclusion, this was a fun experience and I highly recommend it for all ages!
