Should I See It
[A]n adaptation of the Jack London classic that’s true to the spirit [of the novel]...
The Alaskan and Canadian scenery is spectacular, the production design is exceptional, and Ford brings heart and dignity to his role, including the narration throughout the film.
Rating: 3/5 -- At a time where cynicism reigns, it's refreshing to call back to the simple thrills of venturing into the unknown -- CGI pups at your side or not.
[I]t explores the same core themes: the relationship between man and beast, and man and nature, the vagaries of rugged American individualism, and the mysterious call of the wild.
Rating: 3.5/5 -- Ford is the best part of this version and the script is strong, but the overuse of CGI brought the production level down a few notches. Full Review
