      Audience Member I can't tell if this is supposed to be based on the book touching spirit bear but it ain't good anyway Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Enjoyed movie ,something positive for a change Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member good made 4 TV pic but doesn't feel like a made 4 TV movie Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the worst movies I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot of bad movies. Here's a few of the problems: Bad script, bad cinematography, 2D characters, too foul of language for kids, too corny for adults. Over all this is just a terrible movie that you should avoid. Its one of those movies you'd see playing on a Fox on a Saturday morning, only even worse than that. Its that bad. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member One of the worst movies I've seen. The acting was horrible, the dialogue was equally as bad and the plot was not creative. It's a Canadian made film which contributed to the poor film. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member This is certainly not Ed Begley's finest hour, but the story behind the film is definitely worth telling. Mediocre acting and a mediocre script drag it down a little, but any time wildlife wins against forest trashing industry, I have to stand and cheer. I enjoyed it more than my rating, but I think 2.5 is fair. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
