The Call of the Wild is a vibrant story of Buck, a big and kindhearted dog, a crossbreed between a St. Bernard and a Scotch Collie, whose carefree life of leisure was suddenly upset when he was stolen from his home in Santa Clara County, California and deported up north, to be sold in Skagway, Alaska, and taken further north, to Dawson City, Yukon, during the late 1890s Klondike Gold Rush, when strong sled dogs were in high demand. As a newcomer to the dog team delivery service - and not before long their front-runner - Buck, a dog like no other, who had been spoiled, and who had suffered, but he could not be broken, is having the time of his life. Forced to fight to survive, eventually taken by his last owner, John Thornton, to proximity of the Arctic Circle, somewhere between Yukon and Alaska, he progressively depends on his primal instincts, sheds the comforts of civilization and responds to "the call of the wild", as master of his own.Written by

Some say that's the legend. Not so. You see, I knew him once, when he was just a dog at a men side. And even all this land is his, every summer, when he comes down to the valley, he remembers kind hands and old masters... before he went to his own... became his own master... before he heard the call.

Thus, there is a new 20th Century Studios logo, which is an updated version of the classic Fox logo. See more »
Prior to re-shoots, Mercedes, Charles, and the remaining dog team die (off-screen) on the broken-up river; only Hal survives to return to Dawson and confront John Thornton in the Argonaut saloon. (Paraphrased: "I lost everything because of you: my dogs... my sister...") Despite successful test screenings, studio heads changed this to Hal saying, "My dogs ran off" -- indicating the team and (one assumes) Mercedes and Charles survived -- in an attempt to keep children from being upset.

Ok, the CGI dog is nowhere near Planet Of The Apes levels of greatness, but it's certainly better than the trailer suggested and I was moved at all the right times. The CGI in general was a bit ropey at times, but it's only a minor gripe.
Harrison Ford is as reliable as you'd expect, and truthfully, he is more invested in an original role than he has been in a while, at least in anything I have seen.
I think it is quality family entertainment, there are some funny moments there is no bad language and it moves at a quick pace. But I think this will have to find its audience on home release.
As sadly, I don't think this will find much of an audience, as there is too much kid friendly competition. I think it would have been perfect for a Thanksgiving/Christmas release!! I think it would have done better, if it was released then.
It was about half full in my screening, about 40/50 in a 100 seat hall.
