A early Black Stallion (1979) and Island of Blue Dolphin type film
8 July 2005 | by useru976900See all my reviews

Film has its flaws-but the ideal is magical and it does have its own beauty.My kids 8,9 years old loved it but my 14 year old thought the story line somewhat ridiculous that these two kids could survive on this island and being too Disney like in nature suggesting the kids looked like two boys skipping from school rather than facing survival on a deserted island.Instead,I Suggest the original 1965 lord of the flies film if this kind of movie interest you.This Film is far more likely to be enjoyed by kids than adults-the kids in my 3rd grade class enjoyed it but I found myself nearly yawning at times.Of course, I think simply watching anyone enjoying a Caribbean paradise makes a film easy to watch and making it possibly too easy-perhaps too easy to make a good film.One can be sure these young actors had a ball making this movie.A cute and happy film but not much more.
