Rated: PG    

Runtime: 1 Hour 40 Minutes

 

         A happy go lucky dog is the master of his world until he is abducted by nefarious scoundrels and sold to work in the frozen north. Once in the frozen frontier he learns more about his primal self and the workings of the world around him.

 

         The Call of the Wild, earns three out of five, Club Wielding Monkeys. The story of the movie is based on the book of the same name written by Jack London. The narration by Harrison Ford, helps move the story along and the CGI animation of the dog, Buck, adds to the story. The performance of the actors is good and the production value is immersive.

 

 This is a fun safe film for all ages. It inspires an adventurous spirit and a new perspective view on the world.
