Storyline

Jack Conroy is a young gold hunter, who seeks gold in the enormous and the snowy deserts of Alaska. One day, he saved a mixed dog-wolf from the hands of a cruel man, and a brave friendship develops between the two. The dog-wolf, who is named "the white fang" for it's sharp and white teeth, was left alone after his mother was killed by a hunter. After a while, the white fang was taken from Jack, by a man who put him in an illegal dog fighting pen to fight other dogs. White Fang becomes a professional, experienced and a cruel killer. But unexpectedly after a long time Jack meets him again and they renew their friendship. When a group of criminals wants to steal Jack's gold, White Fang is the only one who can help him to fight them off. Written by rsilberman

Very touching movie that's well-acted about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart
15 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

WHITE FANG, in my opinion, is a very touching movie that's well-acted about a special friendship for all ages that will warm your heart. When White Fang became orphaned, I felt like crying. However, I really loved the relationship between Jack (Ethan Hawke) and White Fang. If I could have, I would have loved to have been friends with the animal. In addition, I liked the other animals, too. The score was good, the costumes were perfectly designed, everyone was cast perfectly, and the direction was flawless. In conclusion, I highly recommend this very touching movie that's well-acted about a special friendship for all ages to anyone who hasn't seen it. You're in for a real treat and a good time, so go to the video store, rent it or buy it, kick back with someone close to you, and watch it. I guarantee you you'll thoroughly enjoy it.
