      Critics Consensus

      It's undermined by distracting and unnecessary CGI, but this heartwarming Call of the Wild remains a classic story, affectionately retold.

      Alonso Duralde Breakfast All Day This movie just kind of meanders. Rated: 5/10 Mar 6, 2020 Full Review Michael Sragow Film Comment Magazine This film clocks in at a mere 100 minutes, but, except for a race between a dog sled and an avalanche, it lacks crispness as well as elan. Rated: C+ Mar 6, 2020 Full Review Jake Coyle Associated Press There is little here, amid the high-tech photorealistic animations, that would satisfy London's concept of "wild." Rated: 2/4 Mar 2, 2020 Full Review Serena Seghedoni Loud and Clear Reviews The Call of The Wild is a highly emotional adventure that delivers a message of loyalty, courage and resilience and teaches us a lesson in humanity. Rated: 4.5/5 Sep 11, 2023 Full Review Manuel São Bento MSB Reviews The Call of the Wild is one of those movies that suffer from bad trailers. CGI Buck isn't an animated work of art, sure, but he's far from being distracting or annoying. I laughed, I cried, and I felt entertained by all of his crazy adventures. Rated: B+ Jul 24, 2023 Full Review M.N. Miller Ready Steady Cut The Call of the Wild is a G-rated, fun, family-adventure film masquerading as a PG. Rated: 3/5 Aug 24, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
