Engaging despite being unbelievable
30 October 2008 | by dmills9See all my reviews

Thoroughly enjoyable. I only slightly remember the prior film to this sequel, but it is not needed. This one stands on its own.

There is no point where you will believe this story. It is just too far-fetched with usually mediocre acting (that's child actors for you, though, usually mediocre).

The heart in this story is it's driving force. It's about love and survival; Heidi's love for, well, nearly everyone; the children's love for each other; and more.

Although the cover and title may not seem very promising, it is worth watching. Give it a chance.
