Coming-of-age tale for older kids and teens.
A solid, old-fashioned adventure yarn; nothing special but decent entertainment.
Arctic endurance test will thrill kids.
There's something about Iron Will that allows it to transcend the stereotype and become a thoroughly entertaining film in its own right.
Dakota teen enters the world's most grueling dogsled marathon to save the family farm and earn his college tuition in this gloriously old-fashioned adventure. The picture is beautifully shot, especially the train scenes. The sledding scenes are very good and it is really cold - you can feel it, and so can the actors judging by the breath.
The acting is great, the screenplay is all right, history aside it's not too bad. After all, history can be bleak sometimes, and hope springs eternal, we can always dream and imagine right? I enjoyed Mackenzie Astin's performance, and also liked Kevin Spacey's reporter out for the "big story" who in a sense was the biggest underdog of all.
8th grade English teacher, Mrs. McMurphy, made us watch this...and I'm very glad she did! Add this to the list of awesome Disney movies that you don't know are Disney flicks.
Its good to see that in 1994 Excellent and Clean movies were still being put out with the Disney name attached to them, unlike those of this day and age with Disney / Pixtar label. After all old Walt would turn in his grave at some of the modern day Disney films, but this is not one of them, who ever wrote the plot for this web page is way off base ( matter fact it's a copy from Amazon dot com). This is an excellent movie about a 17 year old boy racing across Canada to St Paul Minnesota in a dog sled race to win $10000 to save his Mom's farm and go to college. All the things in a Disney movie that makes it good including tears (Pass a Kleenex), are found in this movie. This is based on the 1917 Dog Race in Canada combining 2 characters into one. Its worth sitting down with the pop corn and just enjoying, and of by the way you don't have to be a kiddy to enjoy it. 5 stars nothing less.
As corny as it is, its a crowd-pleaser, jsut a good Disney movie.
