Watched Gentle Giant (Ben) with my grandson, who is seven. He loved it! I enjoyed the trip down memory lane. There are a few scenes that are tough to watch. But, overall, it is a heart-warming tale.

The "Gentle Ben" series was one of my childhood shows and my son loves this movie version too. I give it a 4 not so much for the movie quality or special effects, but because it is a wholesome show that a family can enjoy together.

This is my favourite kids movie. I watched the movie at the age of 8 - 10 and I have never forgotten about that kid and the bear.
I wanted a bear of my own. A REAL BEAR!! :-)

Film was okay, but probably best suited for very young kids. The story line was very simplistic. My wife and I were each ready to stop watching just 20 minutes into the movie.

It holds up very well and also holds your attention from the first 5 minutes.
Don't expect modern special effects or edgy dialogue.
Expect a good family film.
