Examines the consequences of a father's egotism on his family.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)August 27, 2003
Meandering film that doesn't really seem to know where it's going or what it is.Reel Film ReviewsAugust 01, 2003
It's a testament to Ford's talent that we actually care what happens to him, because in a lesser actor's hands, we'd be hoping that some cannibalistic natives would eat him.Flipside Movie EmporiumNovember 01, 2002
