Fine enough "Dog & Boy" story family viewing
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Kavik is a strong, intrepid championship sled-dog who barely survives a plane crash in Alaska, in which he is taken in by a little boy and is nursed back to health, although the crash tramatized him. Then Kavik's wealthy owner comes to take the dog back to Washington state, marking a heartbreaking departure from his one true friend. But once after being in Washington for a few days, Kavik makes a daring escape out from his owner's house, and makes a journey back to Alaska on his own for thousands of miles; embarking on a test of will and survival -- such a good strong plot on the classic "dog befriends boy" in cinema like "White Fang" and "Big Red". Will Kavik ever reunite with the boy he loves? Will he be able to survive the wilderness? Will he live and be OK? Just one big complaint: the story moves on in a very slow creeky pace -- even more so at the second half, and maybe Kavik should've encontered more dangers in the wild, but maybe that would've made the film too long. The acting is decent. And one would care about Kavik and his human child freind and their relationship. So it's much perfect veiwing for kids and adults. And, hey, the late John Candy has a cameo here as a gas attendant."
