Low budget, no talent kid's nature flick
6 April 2003 | by nate1298See all my reviews

I saw this once when I was in my early teens. My younger brother and I could not finish the movie. We made fun of our father for bringing it home in the first place. The only value "Running Free" provided us with was a reference to judge other bad movies against. "Running Free" or "One Paw" is, in our view, the worst film we'd been exposed to.

The movie has the look of a one-hour Sunday afternoon CBC made for TV movie. The most expensive scene must be when the bad guys attack One Paw and the kid with grenades from a helicopter. Why throw grenades at a wolverine from a helicopter? Why not shoot it or trap it? Poor.

Do not rent this film. Hopefully you are just reading this for idle curiosity and not because you are a fan of "Running Free".
