Goofs

A hand-drawn star map shows the handle of the Big Dipper pointing to the North Star (which is in the Little Dipper), and Khonanesta describes using the Big Dipper to find the North Star as shown on the map. This would not work. Actually the two stars in the front of the bowl of the Big Dipper point to the North Star. The handle points to various directions depending on the season, but never towards the North Star. See more »

Terrible film. Horrible dialogue. The underlying message to protect the environment is annoying. And why is it that in every movie with a Native American in a lead role, he must act exactly like every other stereotyped Native American character ever portrayed. Filmmakers need to understand that Native Americans are people too, not just Mother Nature's inexorable minions out to save the earth from the evil poachers. Ughh. Catherine Cyran, the writer and director (whose other writing credits include Slumber Party Massacre III), must be another one of Mother Nature's minions trying to save the earth through her film-making. I don't mind a someone making a movie that speaks about the environment and the way some people hurt it. However, I feel Miss Cyran did not really want to tell the story of two lost children trying to get home. She just wanted to make a movie that supported her environmentalist viewpoints, and needed this plot to do it. The problem is the end result is not subtle. It is obvious and stilted. Hence my vote of 1.
