Against The Wild

This movie is actually pretty great. I'm a boy and think the actor for Hannah ( Erin Pitt ) is cute, and the actor for Zach ( CJ Adams ) is very cool. People should know that Hannah has to fight wolves, a bear, and her own mother on some things. The movie is only a little intense, but all families should watch it. The father and mother go through divorce, which is hard for the kids. Both kids are SUPER smart and witty when their plane crashes in the forest when they try to go visit their dad. This my favorite movie of all time, and I hope others enjoy it as much as I do.

Waste of time

This was a complete waste of time for the people who made this and for the people watching. For an example of this movie imagine young teens using an iphone to record a cheesy dumb movie. -Kid Review (10 years old.)
