Great Movie

by Dale on 3/8/2013

Duma is great movie for kids and familys. The story is about a family finding a baby cheetah name Duma and raise it as a family member. Later, the boy tries to take Duma home and learn the ways of living in the wild, with a help of a mysterious person. This DVD is great. I give a 5 out of 5 stars :)

Product Overview

Carroll Ballard (The Black Stallion, Fly Away Home) directs the exciting story of 12-year-old Xan (Alexander Michaletos), who decides to return the cheetah he raised from a cub to the wild instead of allowing pursuers to place it in captivity. Harsh South African landscapes, stalking lions, crocodiles, river rapids and a mysterious drifter (Eamonn Walker) who may intend to turn the big cat in for cash - all will test Xan's courage and resolve. Join him in this tale of growing up and letting go. It's a journey you won't want to miss.Running Time: 100 min.Format: DVD MOVIE

Editors Note
Note Owning a pet cheetah sounds like a dream come true for a young boy seeking adventure, and for Xan (Alex Michaeletos), the South African boy whose story is told in DUMA, that dream is a reality.
