Gets a Blue Ribbon.
7 June 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good family-oriented movie from the Walt Disney Studios proves that sometimes less is more. The story is about a Yukon gold hunter's (Ethan Hawke) friendship with the titled Alaskan husky. Jack London's wonderful novel is methodical both in the book and on the silver screen (this is a major plus). Every frame here is a joy as wonderful editing and cinematography enhance a deceptively smart screenplay and noble direction. Hawke, one of the more under-rated actors of his generation, proves he can handle a major production and take the reigns as the primary focus. Supporting actor Klaus Maria Brandauer shines throughout. One of the finer family films produced in the 1990s. 4 stars out of 5.
