Critic Reviews for Sammy Going South (A Boy Ten Feet Tall)
Mackendrick's films usually strike an attitude and have intuition on points of views. Relationships between his key characters are usually more clearly defined and worked on than in this.
This fresh, crackling and suspenseful African adventure story gives top billing to Veteran Edward G. Robinson, who bolsters the fun with his strongest performance in years.
The best live-action children's film I've ever seen, with a grasp of the quality of childhood experience so firm and precise that it is equally meaningful for adult audiences.
If the pace is oddly flaccid in places and the photography sometimes verges on travelogue territory, there is no denying the vitality of the performances, Robinson being particularly affecting.
