Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average The CGI is undeniably impressive. In most instances, Buck is so lifelike that it's difficult to believe he was never portrayed by a real animal.

Average New version of Jack London's classic man-meets-dog adventure digitizes its canine hero—and loses something vital in the process. ...rated a cozy PG, misses the edgy darkness of London's tale and is too cute by half. But it fulfills its promise as harmless entertainment ...
