Great visuals, Entertaining, good actors, but not promoted enough
If you put A-team's Face, A future b-movie sex icon, and Ben-hur's...Ben-hur together, what do you have? the one and only Alaska.
6 months before, Jake barne's family had a great life in Chicago, until the fateful day that his wife died. then, he and his remaining family, Sean and Jessie Barnes, moved to Alaska to start a new life. while Sean is reluctant to the idea, the family moves anyways, and Sean immediately wants to return to the windy city.
so, Jake takes advantage of his pilot's license and becomes a bush pilot, while Jessie and Sean do whatever they feel like. So Jessie goes kayaking, dating a local native boy, and spends her time doing things a person in Alaska might do, while Sean spends his time playing street fighter: The movie arcade game at the local store. this is pretty much where the movie begins.
This movie, in my opinion, was very good. aside from a family that loved each other, it sported some awesome camera views and great scenery. unlike Grizzly mountain, which had next to no good acting or anything, except for scenery, this movie had decent acting. some parts were as cheesy as a pizza, but it was at least entertaining.
Unfortunately, i don't recall this movie being promoted as a classic or anything like that. which is disappointing because this movie is worthy of that, unlike some of the trash we're all fed these days that gets too much promotion.
and just like the cover says, it all leads up to a real cliffhanger. while other cliffhangers might make you laugh (Ultraviolet ring any bells?) this one will have you on the edge of your seat.
