I stumbled upon this movie while doing my daily flip through the channels. While I at first wasn't too awed by an Alex D. Linz/chimp interaction movie, after watching only about 2 minutes of on-screen interaction between Linz and the main chimp, Mac, I was hooked.
I think this movie does a wonderful job creating a relationship between Mac and Billy, and adds to the story on a whole. While the plot may not be strong, it draws you in, and keeps your attention.
Not only is this a story about the race to space, but it's also about a boy's journey into manhood and a family's struggle to overcome something they never could.
