Storyline

Out in the wilds, an aged man tells his grandchildren a tale of his own youth. After his mother dies, his usually-absent father, whom he barely knows, takes him into these same wilds to hunt for a grizzly. They find a mother bear with two cubs. The hunters capture the cubs, but the grizzly captures the lad. Somehow, boy and bear bond and trek across the forest with dad and a First Nations friend on their trail. After a while, the boy figures out where he and his new mother are going: toward her cubs. Rifles, dogs, hunters, bear, cubs, father, and son are headed for a rendezvous.

Grizzly Falls is an all-American family movie.
16 March 2004 | by crazychicka0703See all my reviews

Grizzly Falls is an all-American family movie. It's the perfect movie for the preteen audiences ranging from the ages of 10 to 13. This movie wasn't the greatest, but I will say that it had a cute and adventurous story behind it. I think that if you have children of the suggested ages and you would like to watch a clean movie, then this movie would be a great way to finish the day off with. The fairy-tale began around a campfire of generations. As Harry (Richard Harris) grasped the children's hearts with fear, he slowly faded into his own past. His campfire story began with the amazing adventures of his life. The younger Harry (Daniel Clark)started with a heartfelt story as a motherless child, explaining the pains of an absent father (Bryan Brown). After years of relentless actions, Harry's father finally decided to let the past be the past. He took his son along with him, on a trip in search of his father's spirit and to catch a live grizzly for scientific knowledge. While they were hunting for the grizzly, they came across two cubs alone in the water. The hunters thought the mother grizzly was dead, so they took the two cubs for observations and to fill in the absence of their mother. To make a long story short, the mother grizzly came back and took Harry hostage. Although she was a grizzly and grizzlies are known for terror, she did nothing to harm him. Harry soon grew fond of the mother grizzly and named her Mizzy. He came up with that name because she seemed miserable without her cubs. As the father searched for his son, Harry grew closer to Mizzy and learned to respect nature. From there, the epic adventure gets better and better as the search continues and bonds grow stronger. I'm not going to tell you the end because I feel like I've already told you too much.
