Marvelous. And Streep did all the river scenes without the use of a stunt double - which, if you've ever been white-water rafting on a Class 4 or 5 river, is utterly amazing.
Meryl Streep is outstanding as usual, however I feel Kevin Bacon is even better as the deceptive, yet charming 'bad guy'. There is also some excellent acting by David Straithairn (who portrays Meryl Streep's husband) even though his character is annoyingly pathetic.
The nature cinematography is spectacular and the high intensity musical score only adds excitement to the journey.
I highly recommend watching this one on a home theater system with wide screen and DTS sound decoding.
The vistas are beautiful and the final rafting scenes breathtaking. A good if not great film.
