B Into the Deep "A documentary that is truly hard to shake, it provides an intimate glimpse at true evil living amongst those who only saw the warning signs and red flags after the fact."

2/4 Sonic the Hedgehog "The epitome of soulless studio product, a paint-by-numbers action comedy that feels like the reheated leftovers of an early 2000s buddy comedy."

Richard Jewell "Richard Jewell does well to tell a little-known story and is probably the best dramatisation of these events that there can be."

9.5/10 To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You "With remarkably beautiful penmanship and another incredibly heartfelt look at young love, To All the Boys politely throws down the gauntlet as the rom-com to beat in 2020."

2/4 The Call of the Wild "In an age of children's entertainment that's snarky, self-referential and even meta, "The Call of the Wild"... stands out for its earnest effort to entertain without commenting on itself or the modern world."

2.5/4 The Call of the Wild "A handsome-looking, well-crafted and decidedly kid-friendly adventure story with several thrilling and moving sequences."

The Call of the Wild "For all its faults, it's still a nominally entertaining family film that parents can reasonably enjoy with their offspring."

The Call of the Wild "It's not afraid to be sincere, and once you get your head in the right place to appreciate that (and accept the CGI animals) it's will sweep you up in a beautiful adventure."

C The Call of the Wild "The result is one big whiff - or is that woof? - that proves London's storytelling talents were ahead of his time, and quite possibly this one as well."

C The Call of the Wild "It is neither disaster nor dream, landing firmly somewhere in the disappointing middle."

AV Club

The Call of the Wild "The ghost of Rin Tin Tin and his trainer should howl at Call Of The Wild, an over-produced version of the classic shaggy dog story and a textbook case of why and where not to use CGI."

The Call of the Wild "Just like Walt used to make! This might've started as a Fox movie but has come home, as it's classic Disney entertainment at its finest. Harrison Ford also returns to form."

The Call of the Wild "Buck never quite looks real. And you keep expecting him and the rest of the animals to burst into song."

The Call of the Wild "Much as I wish the filmmakers had put more trust in the organic heartbeat of their material, "The Call of the Wild" gets better as it goes along."

B Beanpole (Dylda) ""Beanpole's" most distinctive element is its use of color, Sergey Ivanov's production design limiting its spectrum to the brilliant greens symbolizing life, rich golden ochers and muted reds."

3/5 The Call of the Wild "A winning adaptation that never condescends its audience."

B The Call of the Wild "If audiences are looking for something new or revelatory in the story, they're barking up the wrong tree. But sometimes we just need to answer the call, the call of the good old-fashioned dad movie."

5/5 The Call of the Wild "Jack London's beloved and enduring tug of war between loyalty to man and the pursuit of the primal plays out against an exquisite backdrop with the poignant company of John Powell's score."

8/10 The Call of the Wild "THE CALL OF THE WILD is full of warmth, laughter, heartbreak, and uncannily rendered animals. Buck will steal your heart. "

3/5 The Call of the Wild "Though it lacks the grit and gristle of the best London adaptations, The Call of the Wild is elevated by Harrison Ford and a very good CGI doggo."

3/5 The Call of the Wild "There's never a moment in which you might mistake Buck for a real dog, as he always looks slightly off - although, for the most part the CGI is good enough to function."
