A real bad family movie
17 February 2011 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

PM Entertainment made a name for itself with its well-crafted action movies, though they dabbled in other genres occasionally, including family movies. After having seen several of their family movies, including this one, it's pretty clear why these movies have faded into obscurity. Although it advertises itself as a family movie, there are many touches that will disturb some children, such as a cougar attack on a youngster and some surprising hand-to-hand violence near the end. Even the opening credits, with its somber feeling, may bewilder kids! But even without these dubious touches, the movie would still be tough going. The performances are awful, and viewers tuning in to see Don Wilson will be bewildered why he's so prominently billed when he barely appears in the movie. (And does absolutely no martial arts!) It doesn't help that the characters these actors play are pretty stupid, particularly one police officer who breaks conduct so many times that he'd be fired in real life. His character is also mean-spirited, which is how much of the rest of the movie feels like. Add low-rent production values, including photography that makes the entire movie look dull and muddy, and you have a family movie that's best used as a tool of punishment for an unruly child instead of a reward.
