Lots of Action and Adventure Without the Blood and Guts
Following up on the success of Nim's Island, this sequel is a great platform for Bindi Irwin, through her portrayal of Nim, to introduce young people to the importance of protecting our earth and its fragile species.
Three of our KIDS FIRST! Film Critics reviewed the film and shared their thoughts with us. According to Brianna Hope Beaton, Nim teaches us "that you should do everything you can to help the marine and wildlife." Cassandra Hsiao says, "Return to Nim's Island will take families on a spectacular expedition underwater, into dark mysterious caves, and up awfully steep cliffs." And, Jailene Arias agrees with the others, that the main message in the film is "don't give up!" Check out their video reviews at kidsfirst dot org. Below is Brianna Hope Beaton's review (age 13)
This film has lots of action, is very funny and is definitely great for the whole family to see.
Let's return to Nim's Island to see how things are going with Nim (Bindi Irwin) and her Father (Matthew Lillard). One day they get a message that some people will be buying the island to build an attraction there, but Nim will not stand for it and comes up with some things to do to save what she calls home. She will do almost anything to protect the island and the animals that she loves so well. Everything is going fine until Edmund, (Toby Wallace), comes along to help but brings trouble. Will Nim get to keep living at her personal resort or will she have to pack up and leave?
I really love this film. It's the sequel to Nim's Island. I love the underwater shots and the humor. The cast does an incredible job in interacting with the animals and making it all believable. My favorite character is Nim because she is not afraid to speak her mind, and will not let anyone push her around. My favorite scene is when Nim is going on the zip line. It looks really cool to ride and I would love to do it. I love the music as it fits in perfectly with the scenes.
Brendan Maher directs Nim's Island. Author of the Nim's Island series, Wendy Orr, is the inspiration behind this film. Everyone does an amazing job from the animals to all the cast it makes an impact with an environmental message.
The big message is that you should do everything you can to help the marine and wildlife, if you cannot, please do not harm it. Additionally, it emphasizes the idea to "never give up on what you want to do." I recommend,
Return to Nim's Island for ages 7 to 14. Parents will enjoy it as much as their kids. If you love the wild you will love this film. I give this film an overwhelming 5 out of 5 stars. I love the adventure, cinematography, action and, of course, the humor.
