i was worried it would be too sad because im very sensitive when it comes to animals. It was incredibly good. So glad my husband talked me into seeing it.

Very well done, Disneyfied as far as subject matter goes (death implied but only one on screen). Follows the original book relatively closely.

It's honestly a great story about a dog that learns about life and goes from a big boy to a big leader. Definitely recommending it to anybody that asks about it.

Well done. It's like they got the idea from the Jack London Novel but is not as realistic to the actual setting of the book. I guess I'd say it is more politically correct to today's thinking. Doesn't show animal deaths - just people deaths - which seems how people think in this era. Overall, being a fan of Jack London's stories, I was a little disappointed but kids who see it will not be at all familiar with Jack London or his writings.

the CGI dog was distracting, but Ford was great and so was the story

Wasn't a greatest movie. Some people like me suspect the dog will go back to the rightful owner from the beginning of the movie. But chose...you know the ending

Bad CGI takes away everything real about the relationship between man and dog in this inherently flawed, technically focused adaptation of Jack London’s age-old classic. Not even Harrison Ford, charming as he may be, can rescue this cynically made film from emotional bankruptcy.

The results are visually disorienting, to say the least. Although Notary and the special effects team do as good a job as technology allows, the expressive Buck never quite looks real. And you keep expecting him and the rest of the animals to burst into song.

Call Of The Wild isn’t animation, it isn’t live action, it isn’t fish, fowl or dog and somewhere in between it falls off its sled. Mankind can always benefit from some digital enhancement; man’s best friend, not so much.
