Balto 2: Wolf Quest [DVD] [2001]

Balto returns with his new daughter in the family sequel Balto II: Wolf Quest. Universal has done a fair job on this 1.33:1 full-frame transfer. It's not clear if this was the film's original aspect ratio or not. Either way, the images look good with only a slight amount of bleeding present in the colors. Overall, the dark levels are sharp while the color schemes look bright and pleasing to the eye. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English, French, and Spanish. This is a very passable 5.1 soundtrack that utilizes surround sounds to some degree (i.e., when music is playing, when there are any fast-paced action scenes onscreen). All aspects of the dialogue, music, and effects are clear of any excessive distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English captions. Extra features on this edition of Balto II: Wolf Quest are slim, including a fairly difficult game that lets kids attempt to have Balto rescue his daughter across some ice blocks, a Fisher-Price toy commercial, some DVD-ROM features, and five trailers for some Universal children's movies.

Synopsis

Balto II: Wolf Quest
The heroic half-dog/half-wolf returns to guide his children through difficult circumstances of their own in this direct-to-video sequel to the 1995 animated hit Balto. Sled dog Balto (voice of Maurice LaMarche) is now the father of a pack of cubs; one of his offspring, Aleu (voice of Lacey Chabert), looks more like a wolf than her bothers and sisters, who look much more like ordinary dogs. Aleu is troubled by her differences from the rest of the litter, and becomes even more upset when her siblings are adopted by humans and she is not. Feeling as if she's been shunned as an outsider, Aleu runs away to learn more about the wolves from which she has descended; Balto, who has had a series of troubling dreams, is certain a cruel fate awaits Aleu, and he sets out to find her. Balto II: Wolf Quest also features the voice talents of Mark Hammil, Peter MacNicol, and David Carradine. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
