The Call of the Wild


During the 1890s Klondike gold rush, a kidnapped dog called Buck is taken there to pull sleds, but forms a bond with a grieving man (Harrison Ford). Jack Londonā€™s oft-filmed story gets a fairly faithful adaptation, but this time virtually all the animals are CGI, especially Buck. Cleverly conceived to a degree that makes most of the action and rapport between Buck and the human cast effective enough, perhaps partly because of the directorā€™s experience from animated movies. An engaging and cute adventure for the whole family with a solid Ford and a grossly overacting Dan Stevens as a villain.Ā
