THE CALL OF THE WILD (Theatrical Release USA 2020)

 Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì 

The Call of the Wild—better than the 1972 Charlton Heston interpretation—uses animated animals as did Peter Jackson in The Lord of the Rings. Especially note the animal, Buck, for exceptionally life-like animation except he seems more human-like and above the intelligence level of real dogs. This also seems to have affected the acting relationship between the dog and Harrison Ford at certain junctions in the movie. This is not considerably noticeable so that the story becomes affected. This is a good watch and quite entertaining.

The story focus is about a dog, lost to its owner, who is taken to Alaska to act as a sled dog for mail delivery.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This movie bases itself on the classic novel of the same name written by Jack London. It’s one of the better renditions of this story.
