Reviews

Fantasy/adventure tale about two children who invent a secret world. Bullied at school, and with worries at home, young Jesse Aaron (Josh Hutcherson) sets his heart on being the fastest runner in the 5th grade. When the day of the race finally arrives however, his dream is shattered when new girl in school, Leslie Burke (Anna Sophia Robb), beats him to the tape. Despite this initial setback, the pair soon realise they have a lot in common, and a friendship develops. Discovering that they both share creative talents, (Jesse loves to draw, while Leslie is a keen storyteller), they invent the magical kingdom of Terabithia, a fantasy world reached by swinging on a rope over a stream near their homes. Once inside Terabithia, they become the rulers of all they see, embarking on magical adventures, fighting evil, and learning how to triumph over bullies.

A kid's film? I don't think so. I think this film should be sold more as Drama. The main characters are young teens, around 13-14 in my view. who find escape from the cruel real world where issues like money and fighting exists to live in their own imagination.

The film closely follows the emotions of the lead character, a young boy, in a rural farming family.

The acting in this film is breathtaking. As is the writing, the characters are brilliant.

I just don't understand why such an amazing piece of art is being sold as if intended for children under 12?? It makes no sense to me. For me this film should be aimed at 12+ With no upper limit.

Very powerful story. Very moving. In my top 5 films of all time.

This is a great movie, I was very surprised as like other reviewers I had expected a Disneyfied childrens fantasy film like Narnia but this is something really different, it is much more a life drama dealing with friendship and (tragic) loss.

While the movie does feature some imaginative fantasy themes (these make up the whole of the movie trailers) with living, walking trees and wild life, like birds or squirrels, transforming into monsters these are make believe and imagination. There is a similarity between these scenes and those in The Spiderwick Chronicles [DVD] [2008] which could encourage the viewer to believe there's some kind of "revelatory" nature to these sequences, that the fantasy is the reality. I am sure that younger viewers will take this to be the case.

The tale is one of friendship, someone new moves into the neighhourhood and befriends the film's main character, a young boy who is unhappy at home and school, he is a dreamer and artist who finds himself consequentially at odds with his father. The two young people become firm, fast friends, the acting and direction is brilliant and convincing, the young actor and actress really do appear to be soul mates. Together they discover a rope swing across a river gorge and something like an old abandoned tree house or fort, this becomes Terabithia, a refuge of make believe were they are able to take refuge from the challenges of family tensions or conflict and school troubles, such as bullies.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. T. M. Croft on 4 Jan. 2008
Format: DVD
I bought this on dvd for my daugters aged 6 and 5. I'd seen the clips of the film and it seemed to be a fairytale adventure in a magical land, even the cover of the dvd suggests this, so when we all sat down to watch it by the end I was quite confused as it was nothing at all like I'd expected.

I expected that my children wouldn't want to watch the film again, thinking that it is too old for them, but they have not stopped watching it! I have since watched it again and now appreciate what a great story it is, portraying complicated emotions so well that you almost feel them yourself. It's a great story, I'm going to get myself the book!

58 of 62 people found the following review helpful By Charlie-CJ HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 21 Aug. 2007
Format: DVD
My 11 year old son and I went to see this movie on the strength of the Disney TV trailers that really gave a totally false impression of what the film was about (it seemed perhaps it would be a great fantasy adventure similar to 'The time bandits', 'Narnia' or the recent 'Stardust'). In fact the film is more like a standard US teen movie, with typical school yard, home-life and school bus scenes. However the quality of the movie is simply in another league to most teen flicks, and it's got some visually stunning moments (not unlike quality films such as 'Alice doesn't live here anymore' and 'Fried green tomatoes'). It's got an intelligent script aimed squarely at an older kid audience, a fine young/adult cast, and is simply a good movie.

It's not for most, if any, under 9s though as it deals with late preteen/teenager childhood friendship and school problems. It has also got quite a few pretty children's fantasy sequences which my son happily took to be real, Narnia style - and it's not that scary, although it is emotionally intense. I don't want to give away any more of the plot though, just try it for the family as it's ideal to rent or perhaps buy. I can't see many kids watching it often though, as its power works best on first viewing - unless someone ruins it by giving away the storyline. That said, it's likely this will be a childhood movie they will remember.

The book, and film, was based on the author's son's real childhood friendship with a girl schoolfriend (although they were both eight at the time and not twelve as with the character's in the movie). I don't think the themes are unsuitable for older preteens - I enjoyed weepies Old Yeller and Bambi at 5 or 6 and in some respects the movies final scenes are quite uplifting.

Format: DVD
There are some films that leave their impression so deeply on you as a child that no matter what else you watch after, they will in your mind be the best childrens films there have ever, or will ever be - to those of my generation, The Goonies, The Never Ending Story , Labyrinth, Willow and Flight of the Navigator cannot be bettered.

Bridge to Terabitihia is going to make the list for the current generation and may well sneak into the DVD collections of a few adults without children.

A wonderful emotive story of friendship, love, loss and imagination - in essence and without giving too much away - boy meets girl, girl teaches boy the power of the imagination, boy loses girl, boy finds himself.

Containing some very well done fantasy animation, Bridge to Terabitia is however not a full on fantasy film, so may disappoint those tempted in by the "Narnia" production team link.

Although this film is rated as a PG, I challenge any living, breathing, loving adult to watch it without shedding at least one tear - and duly advise parents to give it a watch themselves before sitting children under 8 (or indeed 18) infront of it.

4/5 - A worthwhile pocket money investment
