White Fang (1991)



Critic Consensus: This glossy edition of White Fang shaves off the rough-hewn edges that made Jack London's epic story so distinct, but gorgeous photography and heartfelt performances make this an appealing adventure.

Critic Reviews for White Fang

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (7)

Boasts enough nature footage and a strong central performance by Ethan Hawke to win over small fry

Top Critic

Despite moments of bravura and shameless tugs at the heart-strings, the film simply meanders towards a resolution. What's Brandauer doing here?

Top Critic

A scenic and enveloping nature film about a young man and his beloved pet.

May 20, 2003

Though slow and overlong, the movie is at least scenic family fare.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

The movie is magnificently photographed on location. The performances are authentic and understated, and Brandauer makes a convincing veteran prospector, part hard-bitten, part dreamer.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There is so much wrong with White Fang that it's easier to point out the good.
