Out in the wilds, an aged man tells his grandchildren a tale of his own youth. After his mother dies, his usually-absent father, whom he barely knows, takes him into these same wilds to hunt for a grizzly. They find a mother bear with two cubs. The hunters capture the cubs, but the grizzly captures the lad. Somehow, boy and bear bond and trek across the forest with dad and an Indian friend on their trail. After a while, the boy figures out where he and his new mother are going: toward her cubs. Rifles, dogs, hunters, bear, cubs, father, and son are headed for a rendezvous.

Stewart Raffil made this a great movie to watch with the kids.
15 March 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

Grizzly Falls is a great movie intended mainly for a young audience around the age of 10. This PG movie is an adventure story about a boy (Daniel Clark) who befriends a bear after being kidnapped due to its cubs being taken by the boy's father (Bryan Brown). Of course, the boy and the bear learn to respect each other and become just like family. Overall, it's not a bad movie. Harry and the mother grizzly make a hilarious team together. Although you more than likely seen this plot many times, it's a little different because he learns to respect nature and family values through a bear. Grizzly Falls is a really good family movie to watch with the kids.
