Buck is a big-hearted dog whose blissful domestic life is turned upside down when he is suddenly uprooted from his California home and transplanted to the exotic wilds of the Alaskan Yukon during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. As the newest rookie on a mail delivery dog sled team--and later its leader--Buck experiences the adventure of a lifetime, ultimately finding his true place in the world and becoming his own master.
Adventure Drama - This is an adventure aimed at the whole family. Fans of Harrison Ford may be slightly disappointed that he does not show up as a major presence until a third of the way through. Other familiar faces such as Karen Gillan and Dan Stevens have even smaller roles. While based on a novel commonly read by older elementary school children, there are some intense scenes involving dogs and other animals that could be disturbing to younger children, as well as some drinking.
PROFANITY: 2 miscellaneous profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None. VIOLENCE: Fights involving people and dogs with no blood. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol. ACTION: Dog runs and an avalanche. COMEDY: Some comic lines and animal humor.
