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 <>

For those who love animals, this movie is a good view; however, it has some problems in presenting itself as a good family movie
28 December 2006 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Melissa is a young girl who lives with her parents in Alaska. Her father is starting a business of guided tours and money is tight. One day when Melissa is helping her father cut down a tree, the tree lands on top of her! Not only that, but an orphan raven bird lands on the ground, too. Melissa is injured to the point where she can not move her legs. Her only joy is the bird she calls Blackfeather, the smart little raven that she trains. When Melissa goes to the hospital in Anchorage for more tests, her father is supposed to look after the bird. But, he becomes angry at the raven and takes it to the wildlife service. Will Melissa ever see her bird again? This movie is enjoyable ONLY for the lovable crow and the sweet young girl who loves him. The bird is very talented and a joy to watch as he performs one amazing feat after another. The adults in the film, however, are very flawed and do stupid and dangerous things. Sometimes, they do mean things as well. Therefore, if any family member sees the engaging cover at the video store or library and has a yearning to see the film, just be forewarned that you will need to hold a discussion after the view. Although the action is not reprehensible, there are some disturbing things to talk about, even while everyone will agree that the "the bird is the word" when it comes to this animal flick.
