Loved the sledding, scenery
5 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

I loved the parts of the sledding, the scenery and it was put together very well. Unlike 'Snow Dogs', sled dogs do not bark when they are running. I have been looking for the video of Cold Heart of a Killer, but have been unsuccessful in my search.
