  • 4 stars "A great family movie everyone should watch. A little movie that gets across the trials and tribulations and helplessness when Mother Nature comes calling. Least when you expect it and unprepared....what would YOU do? Makes you think real hard. The eldest boy's acting is a star in the making, most definitely."
  • 4 stars "Great and interesting movie."
  • 4 stars "Overwhelming, and emotional, but definitely worth it."
