Dennis Weaver is Great!!
19 November 1999 | by reve-2See all my reviews

When this film appeared on TV I read the synopsis and intended to watch the first few minutes and then switch to something else. But, I was immediately fascinated by the realistic portrayal of a loving grandfather played, faultlessly, by Dennis Weaver. Virtually every facial expression and dialog of Weaver's conveys love and concern for his family. When he and his grandson are forced to make their way through the wilderness after a small chartered airplane crashes, Weaver shows resourcefulness, courage, and just the right amount of vulnerability. This movie is not, at all, sad. It is actually very upbeat. But all of the characters make you care about them and, I must admit, the last few moments had me removing my eyeglasses and reaching for my handkerchief. Please don't miss this one. All of the actors are very good but, it's definitely a great vehicle for Dennis Weaver.
