Huckelberry was a young boy , who runs away from home, and floats down the Mississippi River. He meets a run away slave named Jim and the two undertake a series of adventures based on the Picaresque novel by Mark Twain. As the story progresses the duo exploit an array of episodic enterprises, while Huckleberry slowly changes his views of bigotry. Along the way, Huck and Jim meet the King and Duke, who ultimately send the protagonists towards a different route on their journey. As Huck begins to have a change of heart, he gradually begins to distinguish between right and wrong, and conclusively, Huck is faced with the moral dilemma between the world's prejudice, of which he's grown up with, and the lessons Jim has taught him throughout the story about the evils of racism.Written by
IN this version, as in most other versions of Huckleberry Finn; the part where Tom Sawyer comes in at the end of the book and saves the day for Huck has been excised. Critics complained that this was a deux ex machina type moment; and it robs the hero; Huck; of his autonomy. Most film versions of Huck FInn change the ending and have Huck step in and save the day at the end; in other words Huck takes over for what the Tom Sawyer character does in the book. See more »
The opening credits erroneously base the movie on "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", the correct and original title of the novel being "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". See more »

Elijah did a good job
This film, "The Adventures of Huck Finn," comes from the novel with the same name. It stars Elijah Wood as Huck, and Courtney B. Vance as Jim. Whether it's on a raft or in town running from trouble, there is always adventure happening in this movie.
Huck was a boy in the 40's who ran away. He meets Jim (a runaway slave) and goes down the Mississippi River with him. Along the way, they run into the King & Duke. They change the direction of the story, but leads Huck to realize right from wrong. He's faced with a moral dilemma between what is seen as right and what is truly right.
Elijah Wood was a great role for Huck. Or rather, vice versa. He was very good at mimicking us Missourian's, for that is just how everyone sounds here. Joking aside, he captured the character similar to what I would have imagined. He could have done his accent better, that the only criticism I have.
The King and Duke weren't very believable characters. They both seemed overly dramatic in every scene they appeared in. Always getting clearly scared trying to hold a poker face. Words cannot explain the awful things I saw from them.
That being said, it wasn't a horrible movie, I suppose. I would give the movie 3 out of 5 stars. It was good, not great.
