Jason and my mom were both trying to teach me the same thing. There's nothing wrong with needing people. That's what makes us strong. That's what makes us human. And that's why I'm alive today.

Even though the title and opening sequence give away the ending, this film is still worth watching. Melissa Joan Hart, Jonathan Brandis, Susan Sullivan and Susan Walters give good performances. There is a lot to learn from this film about leadership and survival.
If the producers would change the name of this film and delete the opening sequence, this would be a truly dramatic film.
Nonetheless, it still worth watching for the performances and lessons taught.
With all due respect to Melissa Joan Hart, Jonathan Brandis gave some truly spirited moments in this film, particularly when the characters are finally rescued. Ms. Hart, who is quite talented, could learn to show strong emotion on screen, when it is appropriate.
