Movie Reviews

  • though it lacks the grit and gristle of the best London adaptations, "The Call of the Wild" is elevated by Harrison Ford and a very good CGI doggo
    3 of 5 by Sandy Schaefer [ScreenRant ]
  • this canine tale is sloppy, like a big dog. But you can't deny its gentle heart
    2 of 4 by Mark Lieberman [Washington Post ]
  • the results are visually disorienting, to say the least. Although Notary and the special effects team do as good a job as technology allows, the expressive Buck never quite looks real
    by Frank Scheck [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the film is elevated by its performances, particularly by Harrison Ford; It's his acting that makes the CGI Buck the most alive, easing our belief in their interactions as man and his best friend
    Review rate : B by Maureen Lee Lenker [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • Harrison Ford gives a soulful performance, but his tender interactions with Buck -- who engages with his master as if he comprehends every word -- are so unconvincing..
    Review rate : C by Eric Kohn [IndieWire ]
  • Disney's adaptation of the classic Jack London adventure, starring Harrison Ford and a pack of CGI critters, is enjoyably corny; it's a robust and old-fashioned entertainment with some real storytelling bite
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
  • "The Call of the Wild" is a very, VERY good film; Jack London's beloved and enduring tug of war between loyalty to man and the pursuit of the primal plays out against an exquisite backdrop with the poignant company of John Powell's score
    5 of 5 by Emily Breen [HeyUGuys ]
  • "The Call of the Wild" is a handsome-looking, well-crafted and decidedly kid-friendly adventure story with several thrilling and moving sequences
    2.5 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
