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. It feels like a children's storybook in real life.
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. I watched the deleted scenes, featurettes, and some of the BonusView segments and they were enjoyable. With two commentaries and even games included as well, I couldn't ask for me.
Summary: I bought this for my granddaughter for Easter, along with Return to Nim's Island. I wanted her to see the original one first. She really, really enjoyed it. We had a great time watching it together. I got it for a great price from Walmart and it was delivered very quickly.
Summary: Excellent, entertaining movie. Jody Foster was perfect in this, very funny. Gerard Butler awesome as usual. Abigail Breslin is a beautiful girl who is really growing into her roles. I loved this movie.
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. Well above the usual family fare.
