9 January 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I must admit, I have not read the novel. I would like to, I like Mark Twain. Thus, I cannot comment on how much justice this adaptation does to his written original. What I can say is that I did not expect this to be as good as it turned out when I saw it in the television listings, but it really got my attention, and I never grew tired of it. The story is good, well-told and at the same time manages notable focus and many well-done sub-plots. The themes explored are interesting, and in addition to history and perspective, they can be applied to today's world. The costumes are immensely well-done. The music is great. The action is well-done, shot well and always fun and exciting. The acting is spot-on, throughout, including the children. Hyde is astonishing. The humor does have some juvenile material, however, the vast majority of it is safe for kids, yet not insulting to adults. This can be watched by anyone, of any age, and one could, if so inclined, sit down with their family and enjoy it together. I recommend this to any fan of the tale, the author of the book that was the source of this, and/or anyone involved in making this film. 7/10
