What we think

Lively performances, elemental set-pieces, and moments of genuine beauty makes it easy to forgive the otherwise formulaic nature of the script.

What others think

The result is a bit corny, a bit cheesy and you might feel self-conscious going, “Aww …” at creatures that are not real dogs but laptop fabrications. But it’s a robust and old-fashioned entertainment with some real storytelling bite.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
While the violence is similarly tempered (no dogs, CGI or otherwise, die in this picture), the film remains pleasantly punchy, never attempting to make Buck’s increasingly dominant wild side more palatable.
Elena Lazic Little White Lies
Ford gives a soulful performance, but his tender interactions with Buck - who engages with his master as if he comprehends every word — are so unconvincing that it’s a wonder that the studio didn’t throw in the towel and let the animal talk.
Eric Kohn IndieWire
A sentimental but solid dependable retelling of an oft-told tale, it doesn’t do anything radical with the material but gets by on well mounted set-pieces and Ford’s grizzled gravitas.
