I liked Nim's Island because my favorite part was the flying lizards! Katie, age 6.

I've been seeing plenty of family movies with my nephew and niece recently and enjoyed some surprisingly decent romps but this is meanderring tosh! Jodie Foster is squandered on a potentially great role that ultimately serves no purpose I've been seeing plenty of family movies with my nephew and niece recently and enjoyed some surprisingly decent romps but this is meanderring tosh! Jodie Foster is squandered on a potentially great role that ultimately serves no purpose whatsoever than to hang a tugidly flimsy and unexplored possible romance in the last 5 seconds. Garbage!

A marvelous fantasy with outstanding performances by Abigail Breslin and a revelatory Jodie Foster.

Who the hell does Jack Rusoe(Gerald Butler) think he is? MacGyver? "Nim's Island" comes equipped with two teams of screenwriters. Maybe, just maybe, the original pair of scribes preferred that Nim Rusoe(Abigail Breslin) be given the Who the hell does Jack Rusoe(Gerald Butler) think he is? MacGyver? "Nim's Island" comes equipped with two teams of screenwriters. Maybe, just maybe, the original pair of scribes preferred that Nim Rusoe(Abigail Breslin) be given the "Castaway" treatment, rather than have "Nim's Island" be a sort of "Home Alone on a Deserted Island", especially when the loner girl shoos away a boatload of tourists. For dramatic purposes, her father should be kept off-screen for the duration that he's lost at sea. But, alas, "Nim's Island" is a children's movie. And yet, Jodie Foster gives such an inspired comedic performance as a reclusive Emily Dickinson-type writer, a tension is created between the two narratives, because Alexandra Rover's story seems aimed at adults. Since Foster raises the game, you'll want Nim to exhibit the same psychological realism as Alexandra, an agraphobic, who's forced to become a hero like her alter-ego. But the island-alone girl never seems truly terrified at her prospects of being a sudden orphan. Neither do we, because "Nim's Island" includes Jack's progress with his leaky boat. There's never any doubt about his safety thanks to an anthromorphic(read: Disneyesque) pelican. It's a shame that the filmmakers didn't give the target audience a little more credit and throw more harm towards Nim's way, because Foster gives an Oscar-caliber performance in what essentially becomes a throwaway film.

Okay, so it's nothing great, but it's fun, entertaining, well made and enjoyable. Good cinematography. Imaginative and fun, a bit too far fetched. Good acting, but Abigail Breslin's performance is stiff and unenthusiastic.

It's mostly Home Alone on a tropical island with perhaps a touch of Mowgli. It's all rather Disneyesque but the talented Abigail Breslin and the charming setting keep it entertaining enough to watch.

Jodie Foster's performance as an agoraphobic writer, however, takes the movie that extra mile. Well above the usual family fare. Expand

Nim's Island is engaging for the most part, and the story isn't half bad. The execution is about right, and the movie almost lives up to its full potential.

Nim's Island is an uninteresting fairy tale.
The movie starts off at an odd concept that doesn't seem very logical. The acting is somewhat over done do to a lack of good dialogue in the script. The ending result is an okay family movie that
Nim's Island is an uninteresting fairy tale.
The movie starts off at an odd concept that doesn't seem very logical. The acting is somewhat over done do to a lack of good dialogue in the script. The ending result is an okay family movie that could have been far better with improved writing. It feels like a children's storybook in real life.

There's not a lot of adventure in Nim's Island but there is a lot of character development and although it might be confusing for some, the acting and script just about save's it.

A cute little adventure movie worth watching with the whole family. The cast did a great job and the movie was very entertaining and heartwarming.
