May be good transition for older movies for kids.
This is not much of a review, but what happened when I showed it to my 10 year old cousin.
First, let it be known that I am a huge history buff, and like to see younger people (I am 20, so by younger I mean 10-18 year olds) As an amateur historian, I have a bad habit of spewing off random facts about this period or the other, but while i was staying with my uncle and his son for a few months, my 10 year old cousin seemed to be fairly interested in my world war 1 facts. My uncle had the African Queen on dvd, so I figured he might get a kick out of it. I kind of expected him to be bored, but he was very into it. He asked my questions like "why are the Germans the bad guys" and "what does a missionary do" and how does a steam boat work." I liked answering his questions and teaching him about the general idea of war, and that the Germans were not evil, but they were fighting for there country. I also, was pleased that he took an interest in how the steamboat worked, so I fed his mind with some basic info on engines, and he got all of it. And, after we finished this movie, he asked if i had another to watch. I watched another timeless classic "the Grapes of Wrath" and taught him about the points of that movie, and that even though ti may be an old movie, it doesn't mean it is bad. Hope this helps someone, even though it is not a real "review".
