[referring to Buck, the Yukon Dog]
Narrator: And he knew that John Thornton was dead. It left a great void in him somewhat akin to hunger, but a void that ached and ached...and which food could not fill.

Best movie based on London's book so far
1 December 1999 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It is a pity that we have yet to see good movies doing justice to Jack London's "Call of the Wild" and "The Sea Wolf" novels. This movie is the best I have seen for the former. The background music is great, scenery is spectacular, acting is good, and Jack London's great story is well narrated. The novel remains the best dog story ever told (I don't have any pets), but this movie should appeal to all who love outdoors. Besides, there is plenty of depth in this movie, dealing with nature and nurture, survival of the fittest etc. I give it 9 out of 10.
