Movie synopsis
In THE RIVER WILD, Gail (Meryl Streep), a former river guide, plans a white-water rafting trip to celebrate her son Roarke's (Joseph Mazzello) birthday and patch up her troubled marriage to her workaholic husband, Tom (David Strathairn). As the family begins their river adventure, they meet Wade (Kevin Bacon), a novice rafter with a magnetic personality. When the family finds Wade and his friend, Terry (John C. Reilly), stranded and abandoned by their guide, Gail and Tom decide to help them navigate the rapids. However, family fun turns to terror when Wade and Terry show their true colors--they're really criminals trying to evade the police following a major heist. To make matters worse, their escape route requires that they run the Gauntlet, deadly rapids where three rivers converge in violently tumultuous waters. This taut thriller from director Curtis Hanson (BAD INFLUENCE, L.A. CONFIDENTIAL) features Streep in her first role as an action-adventure heroine, while Bacon is truly menacing as the psychotic Wade, a desperate criminal in over his head.

A Great Adventure

The River Wild is a wonderful action adventure thriller. It offers spectacular views of the Kootenai River in Montana. In addition to being a thriller, its secondary plot is about a boy beliving in his dad again and a wife's doubts about her marriage put to rest. Meryl Streep's acting is always great. The best scene is, in her argument with her husband in their bedroom, she goes into the bathroom and before shutting the door, gives the camera a great shot of her looking indignant. A great actor can say more without words and Meryl is one of the.

Totally fun movie!

The River Wild is such an enjoyable movie. What a great cast, and yet another role demonstrating how Meryl Streep can do just about anything. The scenery is magnificent, the river action scenes thrilling, the social drama intriguing and who knew Kevin Bacon could be so evil (there are a few unpleasant scenes)? Nicely directed. I definitely recommend it.

A wildy thrilling adventure

WOW!!! What a movie! It has you at the edge of your seat the entire thing! If you like suspensful, intense movies without all the hoopla of today's films watch The River Wild!!!!! Meryl Streep and Kevin Bacon are brilliant in their roles. And Meryl does 90% of the rivers herself! I truely great movie that has made it into my top 5.

Kevin Bacon is good at Bad

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: The River Wild (Blu-ray Disc, 2011)

Kevin Bacon as the bad guy, which he does best, who interrupts and kidnaps the Streep family out for a rafting trip. Meryl as the white water rafter, Strathairn as the white collar husband who never removes his tie, the son and the dog. Good dynamics and contention between Streep and Bacon. But never forget the rule - "you can mess with my spouse, my child, BUT NEVER - mess with my dog !"

The River Wild

I love suspense and action movies. This adds a troubled family pulling together and realizing how much they still love each other. The pet is also an added touch and is also one of the family. Dogs can sense family problems. It was good to see the pet also included.
