User Review

Excellent

Rating: 8/10

Ahh. White Fang. The very title itself brings warmth to my heart as it was
the first novel I ever read. Now, this isn't quite an exact adaption of
Jack
London's novel, that would be difficult. What is does do is take the fine
wildlife elements of the novel and fuse them onto the tale of a boy rather
than vice versa as in the novel. This is more the story of Jack than the
wolf itself. As a film adaption however, it was the correct road to take
and
makes for splendid entertainment. There are many recognizable moments from
the book however to ensure the film is deserving of the title. It's
beautifully shot, with amazing scenery so it certainly realizes the vision
of the book. It also has top performances from the two leads and nice
support from Remar as the snarling Beauty. The bottom line though is
whether
you're familiar with London's touching novel or not this film will warm
your
heart. Recommended to anyone who likes a good old fashioned yarn.
