A Highly Entertaining Action Flick!,
This review is from: The River Wild [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I had high expectations for this movie--and they were fulfilled! Meryl Streep (as normal) brings her character to life! And this time, her character is no softie at all, like you may guess the first few minutes into the movie. Streep plays a suburban wife named Gail with two young children; when the family takes a vacation to a river area where Gail was once a guide, they expect nothing but a good time. What they get is kidnapped, by some rotten creeps who need Gail to guide them and some stolen stuff down the river to get away from the cops. When Gail trys to save her family and ditch the bad-guys, the audience is rewarded with tons of amazing visuals, excellent acting, and non-stop action! Definately reccomended.
