This is my first movie review. These past few months have had a lot of firsts (posts on Mondays, inspirational post, etc…)! 🙂 Plus, this is the 77th post on this blog! Wow! Time has flown by. Anyways, let’s get on into the post. 🙂
“An allegory about finding refuge and rest from the metaphorical wardens and prisons we face in life, THE RUNNER FROM RAVENSHEAD, featuring an all-children cast, is a fascinating and fun movie for all ages that weaves a profound message into an action-packed adventure.”
Title: The Runner from Ravenshead
Producer: Little Crew Studios
Year Made: 2010
My Rating: ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (five stars)
Romance Content: None whatsoever!
Recommended age range: 4-15
I was introduced to this marvelous movie when I was about seven or eight, if I remember right. It has been a family favorite ever since!
This is an action-packed allegory that even the youngest viewer can understand and enjoy (okay, maybe not the youngest… let’s just say that my four-year-old sister understood what was going on). The main themes are redemption and mercy (at least that’s what I picked up on), which I just loved. ❤
From what I have gathered, there are only five actors who are in the movie. That, in and of itself, is pretty amazing! Plus, all of the actors are children, which I loved. 🙂
There are a couple scenes where there are a bunch of people, so I assume that they must have done some photo-shopping (or whatever the equivalent is for movies… lol). The kids are so adorable! Ike especially… when he lisps something out we all laugh, because he’s just sooo cute (he’s only two). 🙂
So, basically, this is a must-watch, and I highly recommend it. 🙂
Have you watched this movie?
