Tells the life story of a wolf named Lobo. He grows from a playful, curious cub into a wolf with a huge bounty on his head. Along the way he makes friends with deer, tangles with rattlesnakes, has a family, and matches wits with man. The movie doesn't try to sugarcoat the truth and is as close to real life as can be in a movie. Written by Wolvex

There is no dialogue in the film, a very adventurous move from such a "safe" studio as Disney. See more »

A real classic!
6 September 2004 | by (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Being the big fan of wolves that I am, finding a copy of "Legend of Lobo" on VHS a few years back at the local Musicworld was a real treat for me.

This movie is one of my all-time favorites; I just cannot give it enough praise. For once, the wolves are portrayed the way they should be. They are neither sugarcoated nor villified, but rather are shown to be both a efficient predator and a devoted parent in times of encroaching human settlement. The scenery is excellent, as is the storyline which is not too complicated for young ones to follow. I love the theme song catchy and the characters are believable.

About the only thing I can say negative about this movie is the extensive use of canned sounds, especially for the wolves, but this really does not detract from the rest of the film. Legend of Lobo is a beautifully made movie that I would recommend to anyone!
