Critic Reviews for The Call of the Wild
There is little here, amid the high-tech photorealistic animations, that would satisfy London's concept of "wild."
At a time where cynicism reigns, it's refreshing to call back to the simple thrills of venturing into the unknown -- CGI pups at your side or not.
Harrison Ford does quietly powerful work as author Jack London's hero, but his computer-generated co-star looks weird.
If you squint your eyes and blur out the effects (it's not only Buck - all the dogs, squirrels, wolves and bears are computer-generated) you are left with a fantastically muscular tale from the Logan co-screenwriter Michael Green.
Ach, it's easier to go with the flow, even if the script, inspired by Jack London's 1903 novel, is flagrantly sappy and frequently ridiculous.
