The plotting and especially the violence are rather appalling for a film aimed at so youthful an audience. Full Review
Deseret News (Salt Lake City)
Rating: 2/4 -- While Walkabout found adequate material in the wonder of nature and the enormity of the young peoples' experience, A Far Off Place plugs into the tired conventions of violence in order to flesh out its plot. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A gripping adventure for the family
Salomon has clearly learned much from working with directors such as James Cameron, Steven Spielberg and Ron Howard. Full Review
...Crisply animated....Plenty of sweeping visuals....Extremely clever moments...
...Reese Witherspoon impresses with Hayley Mills-ish spunk....The dune-dotted scenery delights...
Celebrates the wisdom of indigneous peoples and the fine spiritual friendships they offer to us if we open up to a different way of being. Full Review
