Set in 1896 in the Klondike region of Yukon, Canada follows the adventures of White Fange, a wolf dog, who aids a young Indian boy, Mitsah, as well as Jason Scott, a journalist who arrives in the small gold town of Dawson City which is run by a ruthless and greedy businessman named Beauty Smith and his gang of equally ruthless henchmen who control the town with fear to profit from the local prospectors, and it's up to Scott with the help of White Fang to clean up the town of corruption and greed.

Based on the Jack London story, White Fang was well done. The main drawback is its violence. Lots of fighting and killing, including graphic scenes of shooting, stabbing and animals fighting. My young children (5 and 7) were upset by this. It is surprising that the video had a PG rating.
Otherwise, acting was good, cinematography was excellent. English-language dubbing was a bit slipshod and noticeable.
