Atom User Reviews for The Great Alaskan Race
A pleasant surprise of a movie -- really enjoyed it.
This was an amazing movie. Brought us to tears, filled us with hope, and taught us more about some of our history’s heroes. Will definitely be purchasing this movie when it comes out on DVD.
Good story. Acting was like a Lifetime movie. Too much mushy music.
The Great Alaskan Race is the vigorous, heartbreaking film about that true story that will leave you cheering.
Although earnest to a fault and certainly fulfilling its goal of being family-friendly entertainment, The Great Alaskan Race ultimately proves less exciting and not nearly as adorable as Balto, the 1995 animated film inspired by the same events.
Brian Presley wrote, directed, produced, and stars in The Great Alaskan Race, and his reverence for the dire situation and heroics of the mushers are evident throughout. However, passion alone does not make a good movie.
