Overview

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

Balto III: Wings of Change
Noble dog Balto returns in this direct-to-video sequel to the popular animated adventure that bears his name. Balto (voice of Maurice LaMarche) has retired from his chores as a sled dog, and his son Kodi (voice of Sean Astin) has taken his place. But Kodi's livelihood may be in danger when mail airplanes come to the frozen North, which threaten to make the post office's dog teams obsolete. In order to determine who can deliver the mail faster, the pilot of the carrier plane challenges the leaders of the dog teams to a race; however, when the mail plane is involved in a serious accident, Balto and Kodi must put aside the rivalry to help save injured pilot Duke (voice of Keith Carradine). Balto III: Winds of Change also features the voice talents of Jean Smart, David Paymer and Kathy Najimy. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Balto
Balto is an animated trifle, based loosely on a true story from the 1920s, that may offer some amusement for young children. A live-action intro and outro set the stage for the story of Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon), a stray who's half dog and half wolf, who is shunned as a half-breed outcast by both humans and his own kind. Balto does have some friends, like the goose Boris (Bob Hoskins) and two polar bears named Muk and Luk (Phil Collins), but he is particularly resented by canine pack leader Steele (Jim Cummings), with whom he is competing for the affections of Jenna (Bridget Fonda). He eventually becomes a hero when he guides a medication-carrying sled to a townful of sick kids in the wilds of Alaska. The film features a number of positive messages (subtlety is not its strong point), but it may not feature enough humor or excitement to keep anyone but the very smallest viewers engrossed. ~ Don Kaye, Rovi
