Movie Info

Adapted from the beloved literary classic, THE CALL OF THE WILD vividly brings to the screen the story of Buck, a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team--and later its leader--Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (10)

  • There's a lot of humour and warmth to the film ... A few gripes aside, Sanders manages to bring this classic story to a new generation.

  • A pleasant but toothless adaptation that manages to distract more than genuinely entertain. In a cinematic fight, Togo would be the champ. [Full review in Spanish]

  • We don't get family films like this anymore.

    February 18, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • [T]he new film adaptation of The Call of the Wild has all the thematic weight of an Air Bud sequel.

  • Breathtaking! A heartwarming, family-friendly, epic journey well worth taking. Harrison Ford gives one of his best performances in years.

    February 18, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • It's a tale steeped in tradition, begging the question of why more traditional filmmaking techniques weren't employed to capture its true essence.
