Movie Reviews

If you want to eat, you'll work

"Captains Courageous DVD

Captain Courageous is updated version of a story by Rudyard Kipling"Captains courageous." (Kipling dollar library for young moderns). In the movie, staring Robert Urich as a fishing boat's captain, and Kenny Vodas as a young, spoiled rich boy who falls overboard from a cruise liner and is rescued by a fishing boat and is required to work if he wants to eat is a great story about growing up.

Highly recommended for any family who has a young teenage boy that is not use to minding his manners, respecting his elders, and doing chores as a responsibility.

Warning has a "tear-jerking" ending.

This Is A Good Remake!

"This remake of the original 1937 black and white Captains Courageous movie that starred Spencer Tracy is very good and I think Robert Urich was great and really played his part well and I also liked the rest of the cast, especially the child actor who played his son and the child actor who played Harvey. And this movie has inspired me to read the classic book that both movies are based on!"

"I bought this movie after we read the original book by Kipling. What a horrible disappointment.

I don't know why Hollywood feels the need to "rewrite" a classic. Kipling is a proven author and they can do nothing to improve the story line! In fact they ruined it! Don't waste your time or money!

"I read the book "Captains Courageous" by Rudyard Kipling (great book, excellent message, very difficult language) with my children. Knowing they missed much of the story, we watched this movie to fill in the blanks for them.

What a waste! We were disappointed in many ways. They changed the story terribly! In the book Harvey is not an orphan, his best friend doesn't die, and the captain is an excellent role model, not some ultra-distant and sometimes emotionally outraged man. It was horrible! We all agreed that the storyline was far better as originally written. It wasn't a case of a few minor details being changed, the entire virtue of the story was diminished. Why? Why? Why?

Looks like there is a 1937 version we'll have to try. Back then I'm sure it was okay to teach life lessons about working hard, growing up, and appreciating family without needing to write them out of the storyline or making it really cheesy in the process."
