Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a great adventure or nothing.” Movies about adventure can encourage heroism, courage, and a willingness to stand for what is right in the face of adversity. In a time when adventure movies seem to be little more than an excuse to display violence and bloodshed, great adventure stories can inspire us to live for a more noble purpose. Here are some adventure movies that teens will love, and the whole family can endorse.
