Quotes

[first lines]
Ellie Linton: We're not going to hold back. Recording it like this, it's um, it's so important to us. I guess it's our way of telling us that things matter. That we mean something. Maybe... some of the things we've done... The friends that we've lost, hopefully it all makes a difference somehow.
[regaining her composure]
Ellie Linton: There's only one way to do this. And that's to go back to where this all began.

A win for the whole family!
29 September 2013 | by (Covington, Va) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie on Netflix. I had never heard of it and gave it a chance... and I am sure glad I did! The movie had everything you would want in a family level adventure movie. Action, but not too much gore. There were a few scenes on the borderline, but this is an age where kids see more violence on the news then in a movie. Adventure, lets face it Australia IS adventure plain and simple! The locations they chose to film in were either breathtaking or ones where your dream home would be. Mashing it up with some decent acting, enough special effects to add to the mix and a competent supporting cast makes for one hell of a good movie. My only hope is they market it a bit better or direct to DVD it here in the US as I would but a combo pack with this and the original any day of the week.
