Movie Info

After overcoming personal tragedy, widowed father and champion musher Leonhard 'Sepp' Seppala steps in the midst of a diphtheria outbreak in his small dock town of Nome, Alaska to safely deliver the anti-toxin to the hospital. With his own child's life on the line, Sepp battles the impossible, accompanied by his trusty pack of sled dogs. When a severe winter storm has made it impossible journey for planes, trains, or any form of transportation, Sepp and his dogs are able to get the anti-toxin to the children in need, just in the nick of time.

  • Not a perfect film, but breathtaking enough to linger in the memory.

  • Unfortunately, it turns out that very least is still too much to ask for from this handsome but hokey drama, which barely seems to notice its canine players amid a focus on one-dimensional humans.

  • Although earnest to a fault and certainly fulfilling its goal of being family-friendly entertainment, The Great Alaskan Race ultimately proves less exciting and not nearly as adorable as Balto, the 1995 animated film inspired by the same events.

    Oct 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The historic serum run combined dogs, sports and life-or-death stakes, a seemingly perfect setup for cinematic adaptation that "The Great Alaskan Race" fumbles.

    Oct 24, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Intense but uneven historical drama showcases teamwork.

    Oct 25, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Too often, "The Great Alaskan Race" is as much a slog as anything the sled dogs have to navigate.
