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.
Plot: Mischievous Huck Finn is unnerved when his father, reemerging after years away, kidnaps him in an attempt to take away a $600 inheritance from his late mother. Fearing for his life, Huck fakes his own death and escapes. He soon runs into his friend, Jim, a slave fleeing his master. Together, the pair embarks on a raft journey down the Mississippi River, staying ahead of pursuers who blame the slave for Huck’s alleged murder.

I’ve yet to see a perfect film version of Twain’s excellent story, but this version is still quite alright
I have read the popular novel “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain and I found it to be an instant classic and a book definitely worth my time. When it comes to movie adaptations, I’ve seen very few. The 1993 version titled “The Adventures of Huck Finn” stars a young Elijah Wood as Huckleberry and Courtney B. Vance as Jim and also featured in the cast are some other well-known faces such as Ron Perlman, Jason Robards, Robbie Coltrane, and James Gammon. Overall, with this star-laden cast, the movie is quite entertaining in its own way. Like other films I can think of, it’s beginning made little sense and happened a little too suddenly with no room for proper pacing or development. But once this had gone by, I did find myself enjoying the movie quite a bit.
Wood was, and still is a fine young actor and his performance as Huckleberry was noteworthy. I did like Courney B. Vance’s performance as Jim and I think he rendered and portrayed the character with absolute perfection. After him, I did like Jason Robards and Robbie Coltrane as the bumbling con artists who call themselves the king and the duke. Ron Perlman was also a good choice to play Huckleberry’s deranged father, unfortunately he wasn’t given enough screen time to show his quintessential talents for the role and he wasn’t quite involved in the story enough as he was in the book.
One thing that did disappoint me was that the screenwriters wrote out the character of Tom Sawyer, probably due to concern of containing too many characters for a 108-minute film. So I can understand the filmmakers’ decision and accept it. Maybe the inclusion would have slowed the movie down, maybe not. But all and all, I did very much enjoy “The Adventures of Huck Finn” and although it is not a perfect adaptation of Mark Twain’s excellent book, I still enjoyed it.
no matter what, we can still talk about moral nihilism
While it seems fairly common for book-to-film adaptations to change things in the process, I’ve heard that “The Adventures of Huck Finn” went so far as to change what happened at the end. But I’ve never read the novel, so maybe I shouldn’t comment on that. The truth is, Mark Twain intended for his work to be serious (not to get adapted by Disney).
But one point that they certainly kept was something that we talked about in an ethics class that I took two years ago. In one scene, some people ask Huck (Elijah Wood) whether Jim (Courtney B. Vance) is black or white, and Huck says white. You must understand that Huck was raised to believe that slavery was correct and that he should return escaped slaves. According to that, it was immoral for him to lie about Jim. But since slavery has now been mostly – unfortunately, not totally – discredited, it looks perfectly moral for Huck to lie about Jim. Therefore, Huck is a moral nihilist, subscribing to neither approach.
But otherwise, the movie’s OK as a simple adventure story. Just not the sort of thing that I necessarily recommend as a history lesson. Also starring Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from the Harry Potter movies), Jason Robards, Ron Perlman, Anne Heche, Curtis Armstrong (Booger from “The Revenge of the Nerds”) and Frances Conroy (Ruth on “Six Feet Under”).
