Jack London's immortal tale of courage and survival comes to life amid the breathtaking beauty of the great Alaskan frontier. Ethan Hawke stars as a young man trying to fulfill his father's dying wish to find gold in the treacherous Yukon valley. His incredible Journey begins when he meets a veteran gold miner who guides young Jack to his father's claim. Along the way, Jack discovers a kindred spirit who will change his life forever a magnificent wolf-dog named White Fang. From the taming of a wolf, to the taming of the wild, he must find the courage to conquer his fears and become a man in this outdoor adventure.
I just read White Fang and I found it awesome. London is the writer of the Yukon and the Gold Rush. When I start watching this movie I just thought that it must have a lot of twist to be a good movie. The book was really wild: the famine, the attacks of White Fang to the dogs at the station, are not here... It will be too cruel to the movie screen and I guess impossible without hurting the animals. Instead, you will find here a kind movie, with action, with a spectacular scenarios, with this beautiful wolf/dog, with great music and with the London adventure at his best. Inspired in White Fang, the movie carry us trough the life of Jack becoming a man, and a simple and moving relationship between the man and his dog. There are scenes that were just great: the amazing dog combat, in this point both movie and book are just awesome.
