Storyline

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.

Goofs

When Tom wakes up the first morning after he and Huck reach Jackson Island, he sees a fox crossing a wide, fast flowing stream with a rocky bottom. The narrator has described Jackson Island as an "uninhabited thin and woodsy piece of free floating land." The island certainly wouldn't be big enough to support such a stream and the clear water certainly wouldn't be coming from the muddy Mississippi. The shot is stock or second unit footage. See more »

not the best but...
28 June 2015 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

maybe, it is not the most inspired adaptation. but it is nice, seductive, cool and funny. and after so many adaptation, front to high expectations, it has the great virtue to be good occasion to remind the atmosphere of a classic. only sin - Val Kilmer as Mark Twain. too much make-up and a too strange performance. but that is only a small detail. an easy film who has the flavor of classic novel. and that is enough for good entertainment. inspired option for the lead characters for the image level, decent performances, beautiful images. and a film not for high expectations but for fun. version for a new generation, it preserves the spirit of original work. and that fact is real important. the others - only few details.
