White Fang
16 May 2007 | by jcstothemaxSee all my reviews

i remember watching this film when i was kid back in 1991. I was and still am a lover of Wolves, and this film really got to me. I just purchased the DVD last night, and am so excited to re-live what was once my all time favorite movie. The acting and the scenery in this film are amazing, i can still remember sitting in my bedroom watching Ethan Hawke's character walking up that huge slope to get to the top and meet with the people he is going to mine gold with. Along the way White Fang comes along and helps him and protects him. It is one of the greatest movies having to do with the gold mining and wildlife. White fang was my hero as an animal as i was growing up, and i had always wished that i could find a wolf, and live in alaksa with it by my side.
