I first read 'the Call of the Wild,' over sixty years ago.

I even watched the odd movie or two, which were based on the book - in what seems now, like - antiquity. This film is nothing like I remember that it should be!? In fact, I wouldn't go so far as to call it, 'The Call of the Wild.' Not even, ''Indiana Jones' in a Cabin Somewhere (not over the rainbow).' To my mind, it isn't even 'Call of the Wild 'Lite!'' Although it could be dubbed, 'the call of the unmown hayfield, outback,' maybe? Whilst I was looking for something more raw, visceral, & 'Boys Own' stuff! This is for viewing with the the kids sat on your lap, if they're not too old? Or with the grandkids - or in my case, the greatgrandkids! But in these troubled times, the more so when the miles between us are even greater than in that onscreen 'wilderness, far away - I must sit & watch & hope for better things to come up to view on Prime. Not a complete waste, just not a film for everyone to enjoy.

A great remake of a classic film.

Often we see a title of an old film and think not another version of an old film, it will never stand up to the original film, well in this case it stood up in fact this movie will stand the test of time. I can say I was captured by this film from the very beginning , not just because it stars all time favourite of mine Mr Harrison Ford but the way it was filmed ,even though its clear the main character Buck is CGI that's soon forgotten , as a dog owner I soon grew to be mesmerized by the characteristics of this animal, the scene when Buck stands his ground and refuses to give up his spot at as the front of the dog sled team which reminded me of how my own dog stands her ground thinking she is the leader of the pack, this a lovely family movie and one that I will certainly be watching again and again.

entertaining!
Verified purchase
I did a complete 180 with this film. Started and was horrified at CGI anthropomorphised dog and was ready to switch off pronto. But then there were some great action scenes with Northern Lights thrown in and I was converted. Dan Stevens is an excellent baddie and Harrison Ford and great goodie. If you can buy into the human dog, you'll enjoy it. I did.

great family film
Verified purchase
I wanted to see this movie for weeks before deciding to hire it from prime video and I'm really glad I did. Very entertaining and fun, the characters (dogs) are very believable and endearing and Harrison Ford does a great job as the grieving, bereaved father. Well worth a watch I for one will definitely be watching it again

good film
Verified purchase
I like the film but I thought some of it was really upsetting especially with the bad guy in this film i really wanted to punch his lights out so bad, leave the dog alone for goodness sake, also in my opinion why was Karen Gillian in this movie? waste of time that was really nice ending shame for Harrison Ford to die in the end but great for Buck the Dog to go with the Wolves.
would rate it 6 out of 10.

One of the few family films around
Verified purchase
The dogs are CGI which is unusual but ok. The film is one of the few family films around without being assaulted by full on wokery . Even though their are few bits of it. But if nothing pre 1995 is avaible , still worth watching.

Harrison Ford is a legend.
Verified purchase
Never read the book or seen any of the other movies. The CGI was more than ok, only a couple of bits looked out of place. Harrison Ford is brilliant. The story is really heart warming, you just need to overlook the generic villain. Lovely family film.

Heartwarming
Verified purchase
Despite this being a story primarily about a CGI dog, the quality of colour, imagery, directing, story & acting make this a highly enjoyable, heartwarming & memorable movie for all ages. Definitely worth a watch.
