Movie Reviews

Surviving In The Wilderness
kids_first2 | USA | 09/21/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a moving story, well produced and enhanced with DVD capabilities. "The DVD feedback option is wonderful for promoting discussion." "The ease of going from scene to scene was a great benefit." Good historical information and author's biography. The kids liked the adventure story. DVD features easy to operate for most. "I liked the way we could go back to different sections, like when they were shooting arrows." "It showed a lot about hunting and building a cabin." "Matt got along with the Indians." Best for ages 8 to 12."
A good family movie

"Keeping the Promise is a movie based on the children's novel, Sign of the Beaver, by Elizabeth George Speare. I'm a teacher, so I have my students read the book, then we watch the movie and compare the two. It is a good family movie with a positive message. My students enjoy watching it every year!"
A good movie, but it doesn't really follow the book

"While this movie barely resembles the book, "The Sign of the Beaver" (they changed many things) it is still a very good family movie. My 11 year old son and I enjoyed watching it, but there were a couple of scenes my 6 1/2 year old daughter found a little upsetting (especially when a horse had to be put is not at all graphic, but my daughter tends to be very sensitive about animals). All in all, it's a great story about family, friendship, and honor. I recommend this movie."

"Terrific family entertainment and certain to please younger viewers as they relate to the child protagonist, 13-year-old Matt. The young settler has agreed to protect the homestead while awaiting the return of his family but, due to unforseen delays, his short wait turns to months. With assistance from the Penobscot Indians the boy learns the necessary skills to survive and must make the difficult decision whether to continue waiting for his family or depart with the natives as the Maine winter approaches..."
