The Call of the WildCall of the Wild maintains the spirit of the story from the original book — by the same name — while making necessary changes so that this movie version will be more palatable for youngsters.

If anyone tried to make this movie perfectly loyal to the original story, no parent would dare let their young children see it.

For adults, the best thing about this movie is Harrison Ford. He’s just so… You know. He’s Harrison Ford!

Personal aside: I know this sounds odd, but given the role Harrison Ford played in this movie, and the tragic death just last month of Kobe Bryant, I’m reminded that the stars we cherish won’t around forever. I hope Harrison Ford makes a dozen more movies, but if this were to be his last one, it would be a good one. I think that more than anything earns this movie an A.

I think kids will enjoy Call of the Wild. There was a large group of kids in the theater with me and they all seemed captivated — and then proceeded to play tag while the credits rolled.

The only thing I would criticize is that I think they over anthropomorphised Buck. I think they did this to make the movie more appealing to children, but the expressions they gave Buck just went a little too far sometimes.

Movie Watching Must Have!!

I go feral for this app. I love it so much and I wish everyone knew about it and used it. It is incredibly useful and I would be devastated if this app ever disappeared. Things I love: 1) the pee times! It’s so handy to know the best time to go and then read the synopsis of what’s happening while I’m gone. I never have to worry about missing the good bits! 2) knowing if there is a post-credits scene or not. This might be my fav feature because I would have missed out on some pretty critical scenes if it weren’t for RunPee. 3) the movie review and viewer rankings. This info has made me watch some movies that I normally wouldn’t and it’s nice seeing things outside of my usual scope. 4) that it’s a small family run business. I love shopping small and it really does feel like I’m part of the RunPee family! If you reach out to them, Dan will personally respond to you and he is so warm and helpful. GET THIS APP AND THEN SUBSCRIBE! It is absolutely worth it and you’ll be using it again and again!

Grade: A

About The Peetimes: I would recommend the last Peetime. It’s almost entirely a traveling montage. You won’t miss anything important. It was hard to find good Peetimes early on. There’s a lot happening that you have to see. I made the first Peetime an emergency but if you need an early Peetime it will work well because the important stuff doesn’t happen until after the Peetime ends.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Call of the Wild. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

Rated (PG) for some violence, peril, thematic elements and mild language
Genres: Adventure, Drama, Family

Is there anything extra during the end credits of The Call of the Wild?

What are the First Three Minutes (a Running Late Feature) in the RunPee App?

  1. Harrison Ford and Patrick Stewart!

    Good review. How much like the book is it really?

  2. It’s hard to say just how much it’s like the book. Both stories take place in the same time and place. There was a lot of savagery in the book.


    For instance, in the book Buck killed the alpha of the sled dog pack, but not in the movie. There were no Native Americans killed in the movie, but many died in the book. Things like that.

  3. Anthropomorphised…. dang I had to look that word up. …But you were right. 🙂

  4. lol, thanks. Nice word, eh? It gets thrown around a lot in science. Like “Anthropogenic warming” is warming caused by human civilization, but not including any background/natural warming or cooling.

  5. I haven’t heard that term, which is odd bc my degree is conversation biology. It makes sense, though. It’s not because of asteroid impacts or super volcanoes.

    I think we’re using Climate Change mostly now.
