Movie Reviews

What a blast from the past!
Movie Gal | U.S.A. | 10/07/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was a childhood staple for me. I can recall countless times I watched this movie with my grandparents - so I do consider myself a very reliable source for a review.
It's a great movie for these reasons: it's an adventure that will keep your interest, it's witty enough to cause a chuckle or two and there is nothing remotely "adult" about it (other than a running theme of an alcoholic gambler). It's also very obvious that the movie was made in the 80's on a small, small budget, so don't expect the almost flawless effects you see in kids movies today. Also, the story is set in America's Frontier Era, so be prepared for some not-so-understanding viewpoints from the characters concerning Native Americans and animal hunting (think "Little House on the Prairie" without all the sticky-sweet endings and less crying from Pa).
Here's the story: An alcoholic, drifting gambler comes across two orphaned kids and their dog trying to travel across Oregon. Thinking he can con them into giving him some food and shelter from all the people who are after him, he takes up with the kids on their journey and the rest of the movie is devoted to their adventures along the way to their destination (and maybe, just maybe, the drifter comes to form a bond with the orphans...maybe).
A Great Family Movie
Gary L. Dibert | Pittsburgh, Pa | 02/14/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Another great family film and it was the first of four starring Robert Logan who in this film plays the role of Gambler Zachariah Coop, Heather Rattray plays the role of Holly Smith and Mark Edward Hall plays the role of Jason Smith. Coop who's on horse back is running from 6 men who are looking to skin him alive. After Coop loose, his horse he runs into Holly and Jason Smith who's on their way to Oregon. Coop tries to hook up with the kids but they don't trust him. Therefore, Across the Great Divide the kids go with Mr. Coop following them. The Kids deal with many hazards while on their way and the only question that remains, do they make and is Mr. Coop with them. The movie it's self I would give a six however, when you add in the country and its beauty through out the movie then this movie jumps to a 9. This was the first of three films that Heather Rattray did with Robert Logan and Rattray when on years later to play Victoria Newman on the Young and The Restless Soap Opera."

"My daughter always loved this movie about Holly and Jason suriving by their wits after they are orphaned on the way to claim land in Oregon. When Mr. Coop enters the picture, the fun begins. Now, twenty years later, my grandaughter loves this movie, too. Robert Logan movies are still the best!"
