Movie Reviews

" A Cry in the Wild"
Paul M. McKenna | Westfield, MA USA | 08/03/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

""A Cry in the Wild" is a super film! The screenplay closely follows the plot found in Gary Paulsen's "Hatchet." The main character,Brian Robeson,is a kid who quickly is faced with the decision to adapt or perish in the beautiful wilds of the Canadian wilderness. The scenery is breathtaking in this movie. I was caught up with the thought, "What would I do?" The obstacles that Brian faces are demonstrated in a realistic fashion and keep the viewer wondering what is going to happen next. If you like the outdoors, challenges, and the triumph of the human spirit, see this movie!"
Hatchet Vs. A Cry in the Wild
Robert T. Rude | Cumberland, RI United States | 04/26/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)

"As a professor of Reading Education, I use the book, Hatchet, and this video to demonstrate to teachers-in training that books and videos can both serve a purpose in the classroom. First we read the book. With undergraduates, I read the book to them, one chapter per day. With graduate students, they read the book on their own. After we've read the book, we do a "compare and contrast" comprehension activity. Students are expected to write notes about how the two media are similar and different. Using an "H" compare and contrast page (one leg of the H is for Hatchet, one for A Cry in the Wild -- the horizontal leg is used for common items in the book and movie). Once students see and hear Paulsen's talent for crafting words, the movie always is ranked as a distant second. The video also illustrates what Hollywood must do to command a person's attention. For the modest price of the video, it's an excellent way to demonstrate to students of all ages, the power of books over video."

"This movie is not what we thought we were getting. this movie is not showing a picture when you order. It is not about the young boy surviving in the wilderness!!!"
Misleading Title - Beware!
D. Bell | Nebraska | 08/28/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is not the movie version of Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. It has nothing to do with Brian Robeson and his survival adventure in the Canadian wilderness. It appears that Amazon is intentionally misleading people looking for the motion picture adaption of Paulsen's incredibly popular novel. "A Cry in the Wild" is the title of the Hatchet movie. This one is entitled "Cry in the Wild.""
