Young Huck Finn yearns for adventure, he leaves his home with a runaway slave Jim to head down the Mississippi to free states. Based on the book by Mark Twain. Starring Elijah Wood, Courtney B. Vance, Robbie Coltrane, Jason Robards, Ron Perlman, Anne Heche
This was an interesting film. The film does a great job at bringing the book to life. I enjoyed Elijah Wood as the precocious boy who is always looking for adventure and doesn’t appreciate the bonds of civilization. The friendship behind Jim and Huck is brilliantly told in this film. The film is great but it can be over the top and it definitely isn’t better than the 1939 version. It’s not perfect making the film not really worth a watch.
