Amazing Film

I strongly recommend parents to watch this film with their kids. This film made my family and me being part of this adventure. Also, this film has a valuable message for these children's generation. I watched this film for more than three times. Amazing direction, cast, and story. Best of the best.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This movie features its director as Mike and what seem to be his two actual sons as the title's boys, which may be why this feels like such an insipid vanity home movie. The plot often makes no sense. Why do thieves leave 50 million in stolen diamonds outdoors? Why would the chief thief kidnap a shop owner and then run the shop as if it were his own? Wouldn't anyone in the tiny village notice?

There's no argument about Adventure Boyz having its heart in the right place, with a fit and healthy dad advocating that his boys eat well, get exercise in the great outdoors, and avoid electronic devices. But good intentions don't make a movie great. When the boys try to booby-trap the house in case the thieves come after them, a Home Alone rip-off alert should go off. Nothing here would be objectionable for young kids to watch, but note that the older the kids in the audience, the higher the chances they'll find this uninteresting.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
