Spirit Bear: The Simon Jackson Story (2005 TV Movie)
User ReviewsReview this title
His story is one that needs to be told to everyone on this planet---that it is possible for one determined person to change what is happening to our environment, before it is too late. The film is not a millions-of-bucks slick production, but is touching and feels genuine. The footage of the Spirit Bear(s) is truly remarkable. I love Graham Greene and he was perfect in his role of a somewhat disillusioned environmental organization employee and mentor to Simon. My only real criticism is the music, which seemed much louder than the rest of the soundtrack.
For people who know nothing about the campaign to save the Spirit Bear's habitat from destruction by ignorance and greed, the film is very enlightening. For those of us who joined our voices to the thousands who heard about the Spirit Bear directly from Simon Jackson, it is very heartening to see the story disseminated through this film. I can only hope everyone who sees it will feel empowered to lift their voice to protest greed and injustice in the world.
He's great, just great. He told us about THIS movie and he's very proud, I know it will be a 10/10!
If you're looking forward to seeing a movie in the US about the Spirit Bear, wait until 2008 because the movie industry is going to be taken aback by a "first ever" involving the Spirit Bear! :D
