IRON WILL (Theatrical Release USA 1994)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Iron Will—all around good watch—almost becomes a classic movie story. It is interesting to see the different racers’ well-defined personalities, the organized system that backs them, as well as how a third page newspaper story can be raised to front page news that inspires readers to track. It’s wonderful to see a good story not ruined by a bad presentation.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This watch is a good family share movie. It sends a good message about finishing what one starts and deserves its place in the family home video library. It serves at a little higher plane of entertainment than White Fang. It has good presentation, good storyline, and educates about dog races…especially the cooperation needed between animals and humans when work needs to be done.
