Call of the Wild 3D is a modern day story about a city girl (Ariel Gade) from Boston going to visit her grandpa (Christopher Lloyd) in the wilds of Montana. While this isn't going to win any Oscars, for a small budget direct to DVD feature, it's really pretty good fun. The 3D shows off the beautiful scenery and the story, while somewhat predictable, has fun tie ins to Jack London's book, The Call of the Wild through Grandpa reading his granddaughter the story at night. It has a good message, and the acting is really quite good. There are some cheesy parts and some eye roller lines, but the kids thought it was wonderful, and my wife and I found ourselves pleasantly entertained. Christopher Lloyd plays it pretty straight laced in this one, but gives a good performance, and we were impressed with Ariel Gade's performance. It really gave the story credibility.
Overall an enjoyable family movie for the kids with just enough weight to keep mom and dad entertained as well.
