A Cry In The WIld
29 January 2015 | by tschwarz-225-279268See all my reviews

Mark Griffith made a Great film for the novel Hatchet .In the film a boy named Brian crashed with a plain and tries to survive in the forest of Canada.He learns many new things and begins the the world differently.

I like that the film is Ralistic. The movie does a great job with showing us how to survive for example how to make a fire or how to build a shelter.

I don't like the special effects in the film because the film is old. The movie does a bad job to making it simple to understand for example the secnes wear he thought about his parents.

I give the movie 3and a half star because its really good .It has many interesting things but, i found the special effects bad and that Brian things about his Parents.
