  • Summary: Nim's Island is engaging for the most part, and the story isn't half bad. The execution is about right, and the movie almost lives up to its full potential.

  • Summary: Nim's Island is an uninteresting fairy tale. The movie starts off at an odd concept that doesn't seem very logical. The acting is somewhat over done do to a lack of good dialogue in the script. The ending result is an okay family movie that could have been far better with improved writing.

Fun family film with plenty of extras

Evil, blu-ray.com

  • Excerpt: I'm a bit older than the film's target audience but I still enjoyed it. It's a fun movie with a fairly simple story, some laughs, and some beautiful shots. The video and audio quality is really good. I was surprised by how many extras they packed into this release.

  • Summary: It's mostly Home Alone on a tropical island with perhaps a touch of Mowgli. It's all rather Disneyesque but the talented Abigail Breslin and the charming setting keep it entertaining enough to watch. Jodie Foster's performance as an agoraphobic writer, however, takes the movie that extra mile.

Lovely adventure flick for those who haven't lost their inner child.

  • Excerpt: I blind-bought this BD, and finally got to watch it on my Pioneer Kuro, and boy this is one nice looking Blu-ray! Anyone who gave this 3 or 3,5 is out of his mind! The first 20min. or so into the movie, I wasn't sure if I liked it but then I got into the tone of it and really started liking it quite...

Mildly Stimulating

  • Excerpt: Good for kids, adults will likely be bored. Outside of the scene involving the volcano, the soundtrack is not the type that will test or highlight your sound system in my opinion. Not one I would add to my video library.

Fantastic FX for a so so flick.

  • Excerpt: EdenFX's FX work is excellent in this one! The movie itself is actually OK. Sound quality will treat your ears but this is nothing you haven't heard before. Overall a good experience but a renter for sure. Only those with kids should consider purchasing this title.

Lost Adventure

Chrysanthepop, IMDb
5 September 2008
  • Summary: 'Nim's Island' is one of those films that had the potential to be a great adventure flick but, sadly, misses the mark. The screenplay is inconsistent and the script loses focus. Most of the characters aren't well developed, some are unnecessary and would have been better left out.
