Small dose of Jack London, but good 3D
22 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you want to watch the best adaption of the classic novel, Call of the Wild, then this shouldn't be your choice. On the other hand, if you like outdoor adventures featuring animals, this is a good pick. And for 3D fans this is worth watching as well. The Jack London story is interwoven throughout with images while the story is read out loud by Grandpa each night. This is only a small percentage of the whole story. The rest is about a 10 year old girl visiting her grandfather, they find a physically ill dog-wolf, bring it back to good health & with tough opposition, try to keep it. The acting is good and the 3D works pretty well on your TV screen with the red & blue glasses. Both 2D & 3D versions are on one single disc. The outdoor location filming was a very big plus. Pretty good cast including famous siblings. Timothy Bottoms(The Last Picture Show, The Paper Chase)brother of Joseph, and Veronica Cartwright(Alien, Invasion of the Bodysnatchers) sister of Angela. Then there's Christopher Lloyd(Star Trek III, Back to the Future, Taxi TV series) and in a small but good part, Wes Studi(Geronimo, Last of the Mohicans, Dances with Wolves, Avatar). And yes, there is a dog sled race.
