    Make It A Family Night

    Call of the Wild was the first "chapter book" I ever read. Now I am old enough to have mistaken Harrison Ford for Jeff Bridges on the thumbnail ;) (but definitely no disappointment there). The filmmakers did an exceptional job in relaying the story. I would absolutely give it a higher star rating if the CGI weren't so obvious. All other aspects of this film definitely drew me in for a satisfactory emotional ride. Please don't misinterpret this as dissatisfaction with the film overall. It was well done and I would recommend it to other viewers. But it could have, and should have - been truly phenomenal. I just feel that the cartoonish aspect of the CGI distracted from a few scenes.

    A very well done story that Stars one of my favorite actors Harrison Ford. He does such a great job in this movie. This is a very entertaining movie to see for the whole family. A lot of people complained about the CGI especially done on the dogs, but I think they did a great job, such a great job that everything blended in very well with the story as it should. This movie has a great story, great actors and even great scenery to enjoy. Very well written with great acting by everyone in this movie and even great special effects.

    The story of Buck

    I first saw this on Disney+ at a friend’s home and knew I wanted to see it again. If you are a Jack London fan this version of his book is closest to what he wrote and is the first film to pretty much illustrate the complete book. Good story excellently presented.

    I went to the movie theater to support this movie with my mom, because I am a dog and animal lover! As soon as it came out on Dvd I just had to order it. Even though I wasn't able to get the Blue ray one this one shows just awesome on my dad's 4K dvd player! The movie brought both laughs, and tears to my eyes. The Call of the Wild is an amazing movie, and this is my favorite movie now of all time! Anyone whether dog lover or non dog lover will have to just love this movie! This is the one movie that will bring a family together to realize like Buck, that no matter how far you are or what obstacle you must face, you can succeed in anything that you work hard to accomplish even if your a human or a dog! Leadership and hope play a good role in this movie! My dvd came fast and was placed in my mail box! I was excited as soon as I opened it! Please purchase the movie, whenever you get the chance on Best Buy! The dvd was well protected and came beautifully wrapped! I love the cover!

    I really liked this movie based upon a Classic Book by Jack London. The photography in this film was awe inspiring. This was a thought provoking story of man and his dog. This movie was criticised by some because a lot of the film was CGI particularly concerning the dogs. It was done because had it not been done this way all of the animals involved would have or may have been injured or killed. It is well written, Special effects fabulous. Harrison Ford was very good in his role. If you like the great outdoors and dogs and other animals you will love watching this film. Great movie for kids over 12 and adults.

    Good results in Burlington Massachusetts

    Very good experience in Burlington Massachusetts. There was a problem in Fort Myers Florida. They gave my movie to someone else and obviously didn’t check an ID. Some how my movie was curb side delivered in Florida as I waited in Burlington Massachusetts. Very upset when my phone thanked me for my pickup when I didn’t get anything. Burlington gave me my order and dealt with the Florida mix up after I left

    A Boy and his Dog

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 2 months when reviewed.

    Director Chris Sanders, a man who has made his bones on animated features like Lilo & Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon and The Croods, might not seem like the first choice to adapt a novel originally published in 1903 with a story that follows a dog named Buck and contains a sentence that is described in as frank a nature as, “They closed in upon her, snarling and yelping, and she was buried, screaming with agony, beneath the bristling mass of bodies,” and yet that’s exactly where we find ourselves with this latest adaptation of the Jack London novel in 20th Century Studios’ The Call of the Wild. Though I’d never read the relatively short novel the film is based on nor had I seen either of the previous film incarnations (Clark Gable starred in a 1935 version while Rutger Hauer starred in a 1997 version) given the marketing campaign and the PG-rating I hadn’t anticipated that the source material was as brutal and unflinching as it apparently is especially when considering the fact that it’s immediately apparent that Sanders’ version of this story is one for families to enjoy and for dog/animal lovers to find the purest of entertainment in. Of course, this is mostly what I did expect from this version and so it more or less went without saying that despite much of the fuss in the run up to the release centering on the animated lead and the inherent comedy in picturing Harrison Ford acting opposite a tennis ball the fact Sanders’ background is in animation and the fact the project rung with a sense of commitment and passion for Ford more or less led to a more rewarding experience than a ridiculous one. Yes, there are still moments in which the CGI is heavily relied on and the animals look about as real as a stuffed animal, but more times than not the CGI-renderings of these wild creatures look and feel exceptionally real. This brings us to what 2020’s The Call of the Wild does well in that, despite our lead character-Buck-being a CG creation (with the help of Terry Notary), the film genuinely allows its audience to invest in Buck as a character and chart his journey as we are not only endeared to his personality, but we root for him in the sense that wherever his passions lie, we hope his strength takes him there. This, of course, is why Sanders and co. would want the freedom a CG Buck might afford them and, while likely not faithful to its source material in any true way, this Michael Green-penned adaptation conveys more a journey of growth and catharsis than it does a simple, three-act piece of family entertainment which, unlike almost everything else about the film, was completely unexpected.

    Picked this dvd up on a whim. A great story, with good acting and great CGI (Buck had some great smirks!). I was very pleasantly surprised at this movies due to hearing negative things due to the CGI but it is a story from Buck’s POV, so it was, to me, pretty faithful to the book. Very enjoyable watch.

    Out-of-the box pick 4 me. Different genre than gear towards. Soo glad i took the chance. Scenery is BREATH-taking!! For that alone, the movie could carry itself but how wonderful that it has story with a heart. Perfect casting with Harrison Ford. He is very well-suited for this part & believe he must be nature-pet lover in true life. Will enjoy this all winter long as media-therapy....Aaaaahhh...nature

    Family friendly version of the story, sort of

    |
    Posted .

    The novel, CALL OF THE WILD, is pretty brutal. What this film did was tone it down and give it some humor. There still is some brutality and violence, but not more than you can see on network TV. The CGI dogs and other animals allow the film makers to show the emotions of the animals that could not be achieved with with real animals. That is why this version shows so much of the main dog (It's his his story, after all.) than other versions were able to do. So come along and see the world through the eyes of Buck.

    The book and the movie take the dog's perspective in telling the story. Dog lovers will enjoy this movie. I'm always fascinated how animation and real humans, dogs, etc. can be used in a hybrid form. I was especially impressed how accurate they were in portraying the movements, the postures, the behavior of the dogs. Very realistic. I bought it. It's a keeper. The villain in the movie was really off the deep end. Very obsessive character.

    To be a family movie it is OK and it has a good message, the story is easy to follow ... but if you want to be more critic you can find some good points to work with, like Ford's performance. Appropiate for a night family movie.

    The best movie ever done telling Jack London’s great tale on the screen . All others from the past pale in comparison, technology made this happen . Harrison Ford plays his age and earned my respect for a job well done.

    My wife and I saw this movie at the theaters. We enjoyed the movie so we decided to purchase it in 4k when it became available. I was in Best buy checking out the movie selection when I came across The Call of the Wild in a 4k format. The price was reasonable and I decided to purchase.
