Movie Info

Independent filmmaker Richard Gabai gives Jack London's literary classic a modern-day makeover with this family-friendly adventure. Nine-year-old city girl Ryan (Ariel Gade) is visiting her grandpa (Christopher Lloyd) in Montana and lamenting the lack of shopping malls when she befriends a wounded wild dog and names it Buck. As the annual sledding race draws near, Ryan and her new friends begin training Buck for the big day in hopes that he can win the gold. Can Buck's wild spirit be tamed in time for the race, or is he more comfortable out in the wilderness, running free with his four-legged friends? Veronica Cartwright, Timothy Bottoms, and Joyce DeWitt co-star.

Critic Reviews for Call of the Wild 3D

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

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.

Audience Reviews for Call of the Wild 3D

A 10 year old girl is visiting her grandfather who reads the classic novel "Call of the Wild" to her every night. They find a wounded wolf/dog, and nurse him back to good health and try to keep it but Buck is wild at heart and yearns for the wilderness. Great scenery and there is even a dog sled race. Will he stay or return to the wilderness? Watch and find out.
