      Audience Member Compared to other Australian classics, it would be outclassed severely, but even with its own flaws, this movie managed to touch me in the right spot. It is also noted that Bill Conti composed the music for this film, who would also be known for his contributions in Rocky, The Karate Kid and For Your Eyes Only. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member One I've always loved. Even with the awful acting, it is really good! It has so much excitement! I remember seeing it in the theatres with my mum when I was tiny. I think it was the first film I may have seen in theatres. Mum really likes this film too. I has a really beautiful song in it too. Give it 4 1/12 stars because of the acting Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member The real Macaw is a great movie but the only problem is that Mac is supposed to be voiced by John Goodman he is voiced by him in the vhs copy of the movie but not in the region 2 or 4 dvds. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review Audience Member I found this film to be entertaining and heartwarming. It was exciting and a great little treasure hunting film. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member marvellous adventure movie. Nothing spectacular and the acting is terrible. But this holds a special childhold place in my heart!
