Appalachian Trail Review by Kimberley Wampler

This movie is about a couple of families who go on a hiking vacation together. The parents are Christians who love the Lord and have a good attitude. Some of the children are Christians and some are not, but they all need to learn a few things about having a good attitude.

The children are allowed to go on a hike by themselves, as long as they will stay on the trail. Well the trail ended, but that did not stop the children. This is just the beginning of the adventure. They end up lost in the woods and must learn how to deal with each other on making decisions. They start to learn how to respect each other and learn to work together. At the end of the movie, all the children are Christian and have had a change of heart on how to treat others.

The movie is okay, I just don't think that it had enough content in the story to make it a movie that really grabs a pre-teen and makes them want to watch it with there friends when they have a sleep-over. The message behind the movie was good, but when you aim it at children you must be able to grab their attention and hold it until the movie is over. I would give this movie a 2.5 stars out of 5. It is not a bad movie, but it is not an action-packed movie like it could have been.
