Ignore the lesser reviews–one of the most compelling films I have ever enjoyed
September 17, 2007
This movie is truly extraordinary, and the principal actor, who also starred in Big Fat Liar (Full Screen Edition) combines brilliant acting with a very capably trained hawk to provide one of the most satisfying 90 minutes of “tuning out” that I have enjoyed in some time.
Sure, this movie has every corney bit from the special child to the sexed up teen-ager to the idiot father that ran, but it kept my complete interest throughout. The hawk, and the man, came of age together, the man found love, and the hawk soared.
This is a GREAT movie.
Some others featuring animals as wildlife that I have enjoyed:
Dances with Wolves (Widescreen Edition)
The Snow Walker
A Man Called Horse
