This is the story of a raven, considered by ornithologists to be the most intelligent of birds, who through its antics disrupts a family, even to causing enough problems that the town finally decides to put the bird on trial for its life. The tale is told in retrospect during that trial by the young girl who owns it. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

absolutely AWFUL
15 September 1999 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

The story-line of this movie was a bit erratic to begin with, but as I watched more and more of the movie, I found myself watching only to see how much worse it could get. The acting is off, and perhaps the only scene that oozed a slight bit of acting was when the father falls down, off of his little snow-mobile; then having the raven bring everyone back to find him. The whole entire movie struck me as ridiculous, with the Raven being the only character I liked. Sure, I felt bad for the little girl and all, but the acting of everyone was barely there. In one scene, there's a man talking about the mannerisms of Ravens to a judge, so the raven isn't destroyed. He proceeds to break into various bird-calls awkwardly, which really turned me off. 1/10... next time I see it, I'll remember to laugh at how unrealistic it is. Even if it's geared towards small children (which it seems to be), it's still awful.
