I liked it - a real adventure! As a youth leader who as led similar outdoor adventures, I think this movie has a powerful message. Sometimes, adults are not as secure as they seem. Kevin Bacon plays an "expert" outdoorsman and youth leader who struggles with the strong will of an inter-city boy. This was a fun movie with an appropriate PG rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars The best "B" movie I've ever seen Jan. 19 2002
By A Customer
This movie is definately not Blockbuster/Oscar material but how many films that do well in the theaters really are? As long as you know ahead of time that you will be seeing a "B" movie with some "A" list stars out in the woods doing some male bonding you'll love it. Remember this was made in the 80's before Kevin Bacon really hit it big and when Sean Astin was a hot commoditiy among teen and pre teen girls like me. It also stars "Boner" from the tv show "Growing Pains" and the assistant director is Kevin Renolds who went on to direct "Robin Hood Prince of Thieves" and other blockbusters. With a better script and some marketing this could have been an 80's hit. The scenery is breathtaking, the action harrowing at times, the soundtrack rocks with Bruce Hornsby, Journey and others. It really makes you want to go camping, breath in the fresh air and enjoy God's beautiful creation. If you were a child of the 80's and haven't seen this flick get it ASAP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last of a Long Gone Era June 29 2004
If you liked Goonies, and are yearning for more 80's style adventure, you'll probably like this film. I like Sean Astin, and in general, I'm a fan of 80's style adventure movies. They weren't serious, pretentious things, like "Bourne Identity" or "Patriot Games". This movie isn't sensationalistic. If you love the outdoors, and liked camping and having adventures when you were a kid, this movie may remind you of your youth. The scenery is great and the music fits well and is actually mixed well as far as levels. Overall it's got pretty good production values. I probably wouldn't turn the lights down, crank up the THX and watch this film. It's more the type of film you watch over and over while doing something else, or while falling asleep. Which isn't to say it's boring, it's more like a comfortable old T-shirt you can wear again and again. It makes me want to go camping, swing from ropes, and play with pocket knives.

3.0 out of 5 stars An okay action movie Nov. 15 2003
I rented this movie a couple of weeks ago because I remember seeing the ending of this movie on TV so I wanted to see the whole thing. The movie was actually pretty good.
The movie is about a boy named Alan(Sean Astin) who goes camping with Vic(Kevin Bacon) and 3 other boys and Vic is taking these boys out here to teach them the ways of the wilderness. Things start out pretty well but Vic then starts to push the boys too hard, especially Alan. Vic is trying to teach the boys the best he can but his ways of doing it are a bit rough on the kids. Should the kids stay and be tought by Vic, or should they try to go home? him.
I gave the movie 3 stars because some parts of the story were unclear or they weren't very good. But the good points of the movie were the scenery, the music and the action. If you are in to action movies then watch this one!!

5.0 out of 5 stars great entertainment! May 15 2003
a great film with laughs, drama, gorgeous scenery and a brilliant soundtrack. White Water Summer is a story of conflict; man against nature and man against man. It is about a city boy, Alan (played by Sean Astin) and four other boys going into the wilderness with their guide Vic (Kevin Bacon). Right from the beginning Alan is suspicious of Vic and so Vic begins to target him, leaving him to cross a dodgy bridge over a 180ft gorge and leaving him hanging off the edge of a cliff.
Bacon makes a fantastic baddie and Astin is, as usual, brillant as a cute geeky Alan who has to grow up fast and protect himself from their psycho tour guide....
this film did not exactly get rave reviews from critics but the key is not to take it too seriously. White Water Summer is fun and great entertainment and I'd recommend it for a good watch anytime!

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80s meets beautiful scenery! Feb. 1 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This video is definitely a child of the 1980s. The clothing, the lingo, even the actors (Sean Astin to name one) are products of that unforgetable decade. The movie involves a summer wilderness adventure of several boys, and their counselor (Kevin Bacon) basically goes psycho on them. The movie is full of emotion as well as breath-taking scenery (the majority of the movie takes place in the forest, surrounded by pine trees and lakes). The plot is a great in-depth study into the human subconscious as well as the bravery and trials of adolescence. The movie will be a gem for anyone who has ever been a teenager and who has ever been camping in the rugged wilderness! Definitely worth a watch!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Flick Nov. 20 2001
By A Customer
OK--so it's not a great film theatrically--who cares? This is one of the few films out there that fulfills that need to see the great outdoors. Sadly, Hollywood is pathetic when it comes to making movies about outdoor adventure and the common "Joe" (except for "The Edge", "The River Wild" and "Cliffhanger" to name a few). The classic 80's soundtrack featuring The Cult, Bruce Hornsby, and others make it even better... This movie is a part of my childhood memory, and for a long time was impossible to get, because it was out of print on VHS. I was so excited to learn it was being released on DVD with new packaging. I will definitely be buying it.
