Alternately jerking the audience's tears and splashing snow in their faces, 3-D indie Call of the Wild loses focus (literally) but gets by on its good-hearted demeanor.

Although Call of the Wild would have been a dime a dozen in a previous era, right now, it's so old it feels new again.

Even comparing itself to the beloved book makes this clunky and supposedly family-friendly drama seem worse than it already is.
