Second Hand Lions

We watched the movie Secondhand Lions in class. I really enjoyed the movie because the actors are superb, the characters endearing, and the plot has an "I can't wait to see what happens next" quality that keeps everyone laughing, gasping in surprise, and amused in disbelief.
Thefirst reason why I like this movie the main theme of the plot. The plot is about two aging uncles teaching a young boy about becoming a man. Walter, the grand-nephew, finds life with the uncles. There's no phone or TV and the main activities are gardening and annoyance of salesmen. They are said to have endless supply of cash in a series of African adventures. Many people try to tell Walter that the uncles are bank robbers. Most of the story has to do with the young Garth and Hub, who ended up in the French Foreign Legion and had unbelievable adventures with a princess named Jasmine and a shameful Sheik. Walter is faced with different pictures of his uncles, are they bank robbers, or heroic adventurers? Soon, he must decide what he believes in.
The second reason why I like this movie is because of the superb characters. I love the characters, especially the bigger than life nature of Hub and Garth. The uncles are very realistic characters. Garth is one of Walter's uncle who has traveled the world in a numerous of adventures. Walter’s character matures throughout the movie. I see Walter unsure of himself in the beginning, but later into the movie he seems to be finding his footing.
An important part of Secondhand Lions involves flashbacks that are in Garth;s tale of his and his brother;s past. Uncle Garth tells the stories, which we see through Walter’s mind. It leaves Walter wondering whether the tales are really to believe. The scenes showing the African adventures are well-handled. These flashbacks are the central to the plot of the movie.
In conclusion, I really enjoyed the movie because the actors are s
