Two Paws Way Up!
A viewer | CO, USA | 02/17/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It was a lot better than I expected! They animation is a little awkward at times, but very beautiful! The songs are nice too; my personal favorite is "Taking You Home." The music is awesome!Before the birth of Jenna and Balto's children Balto keeps on having strange dreams, and is clueless to what they mean. Then comes puppy adoption day, and all but Aleu, a spunky brown pup who looks even more like a wolf than her father are adopted, and a hunter tries to kill Aleu because of her looks. Balto is forced to tell her that no one will adopt her because she looks like a wolf, and Aleu runs away. A raven spirit guide and the spirit of Balto's mother guides him to Aleu, and guides Aleu to her destiny. They find a wolf pack and soon the message in Balto's dreams is revealed. They must guide the wolves across the ice bridge to follow the caribou to survive. At last Aleu finds her role in life and becomes the alpha of a wolf pack, and Balto must return home.But behind the colorful atrt and music lies a meaining to the story: Everyone has a role in life, but you must beilive and be yourself to truly find it. This is a wonderful film that the entire family and fans of the original will surly enjoy!"
Beautiful

"Balto II is even more underrated than the first film. Many people say that the first and third films are the best and this one is trash but I disagree, Wolf Quest is the best of the series. The music is beautiful and doesn't detract from the plot whatsoever. The animation is not that great (but you shouldn't judge it JUST by the animation). Unlike the first film, CGI is used and the effect? Stunning, simply stunning, and I mean it in a good way.
As for the story itself? It's about Balto's daughter Aleu, who looks more lupine than her brothers and sisters. Shocked by this, she (like most teens) blames it on her father and runs away, in a quest to find herself. It involves a Kodiac bear, three wolverines, a cunning fox and a pack of wolves.
In this film, the idea of spirit guides and such comes from the beliefs of the Haida, a tribe of Native Americans who lived (and still do) along the coast of Canada and Alaska. I've seen some Christian shoppers crtisise this film about it. That is really offensive to the few remaining Haida, and they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

"I read alot of reviews saying how offended they where about this movie and how it teaches kids false relgions.Get over it.Your kids will learn about native american relgions in schools anyway.I see nothing wrong with this film.It was very well drawn(As is all the Balto movies.)And the story line was great it showed more of what a teen would act like.and i thought that the way eveything tied in togther was cool.Buy this movie."
Don't you people know an excellent movie when you see one???

"I mean what I said in the title. Why is everyone putting down this film? Sure, it's way off from the first movie, but (call me crazy) I think it's even better than that one.

Just because it's not a Christian movie doesn't mean that it offends that religion. It doesn't say anything against it--it just happens to be based on different beliefs, that's all! Look at me--I'm a loyal Christian and this is one of my favorite movies. Hey--I like Native American chants and totem poles and stuff. That's COOL. The music is beautiful in this movie. "Who You Really Are" and "The Grand Design" are both totally top notch. "Muru's Chant" was also excellent. "Somebody Loves You"? Eh...that one wasn't all that great. But it was still a nice song.

One of the main reasons I like this film so much was because it had more wolves in it than the last movie. I mean, sure, Balto supported wolves, but its sequal does it even more.

All right, I admit it--the ending was just a tad dissapointing the first few times I saw the movie. But I got used to it and learned to look at it as a cliffhanger moment. I won't spoil the ending for you.

The animation is loads better (it might be just a little difficult for you to recognize Balto when you first see him, but that's because of the positive change in the art). The scenery is beautiful--in some parts, the water is computer animated and awesome.

We don't see that much of Boris, Muk, and Luk, but when you do see them, you have to smile with recognition--they're just the same.

Balto fans--see this film!"
