Manifest Destiny: The adventures of Lewis and Clark. 2016

Cast: Meriwether Lewis, William Clark, Thomas Jefferson, and Sacajawea.

Director: Anthony Parisi

Summary: The Manifest Destiny: The adventures of Lewis and Clark was the worst movies ever. This was a poor attempt of a movie about history. This movie was more like me watching barney the dinosaur on PBS kids. The songs in this movie was like me listening to barney singing the "Clean up song". The only thing that I want to clean up is me from ever watching or listening to this movie. Looking at the props made me think of a 7-eleven toy that cost 2$. All in all this movie had the utmost disrespect for our country and of how history happens. Lewis and Clark are stumbling out west to the sea through mountains and forests for the evil Thomas Jefferson that they later defeat.

Review: The movie was fun and exciting. Two scenes in the the movie that I enjoyed was how much Clark cared for Sacajawea's baby. Also I like when Clark carried Lewis to the western sea when he still had the poison in his body. The actor who played Clark did an amazing job because he really captured how warrior like Clark was. I also like Lewis because the actor showed how Lewis was the one who was mapping most of the territory. Next I like Sacajawea's character because in history she lead them and in the movie she led them. Also i like that because she kept her character description. The scenes in this movie made them good because it was funny and it also captured how some of the expedition really happens. This movie runs for 92 minutes. The scenes in this movie were fast paced and funny while also sticking sorta to history. Then I would describe this movie as suspenseful and amazing. Finally I would recommend this to a friend.
