    What is supposed to be an inspiring and brave tale of a young adventurer who travels to find himself, turns out to be a story of a pompous kid who runs away from what he imagines is wrong with his life. I wasn't impressed, although the images of the land were pretty. 8 years 8 months ago

    Great film, but I unfortunately can't help but side with those who dismiss McCandless as an arrogant, uninformed kid. I've read the book as well, and I've come away simply feeling bad for those he encountered. His is an interesting story, but more cautionary than inspirational. 13 years 4 months ago

    I only enjoyed the cinematography. The rest felt like it came out of the head of an opinionated, idealistic, 'holier than thau' 15 year old, angry with society and his own family. 11 years 9 months ago
