The adventure unfolds as Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn - Tom's friend from the streets - witness a murder in the graveyard. Tom and Huck flee to Jackson Island and make a pact never to tell anyone about the incident. However, when the good-natured Muff Potter, who has been blamed for the murder is sentenced to death by hanging, Tom breaks his promise and returns to exonerate Muff Potter. In jun Joe, the actual murderer, makes a hasty exit from the courtroom during the trial. A short time later, Tom and Huck find references to a treasure and have to face In jun Joe again.Written by
In "Tombstone" (1993), Val Kilmer portrayed Doc Holliday whose famous catchphrase in that film was "I'm your Huckleberry." Which is often mistakenly explained as a reference to the character of Huckleberry Finn as written by Mark Twain, whom Kilmer portrays in this film. It is actually a period idiom. "Being huckleberry for one's persimmon", meaning being just above other one's abilities, they way a huckleberry is more astringent than a persimmon. See more »
When Tom and Becky are lost in the cave, Tom has her wait while he looks for a way out. He comes upon Injun Joe in the cave, who chases him. Tom had shoes on when he got to the cave, he has them on when Joe starts chasing him, then in one shot (1:08:58) as he is still being chased, Tom is barefoot. In the next shot he once again is wearing shoes. See more »
Created an IMDb account just to say how bad this movie is.
Garbage trash. Why remake this? The one with the kid from home improvement is so much better. I was shocked at how bad the cinematography is, from the cinematographer that made 300: rise of an empire and spectre?!?!? I guess it must be a cheap budget, poor pre production and horrible directing. This movie even makes a good cinematographer look bad. I mean wow.
Also, why hire cal Kilmer and then cover him in cheap makeup and have him disguise his voice or possibly have a different voice over actor overlay his voice over val's?? Wouldn't even have guessed in a million years that is was Kilmer if I hadn't seen his name in the credits. Good grief how does a movie like this get funded? Go find some good stuff, like my movies.
