WHITE FANG TO THE RESCUE
django69 | 01/15/2003
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD cover is missleading!!! This has nothing to do with the "WHITE WOLF WHITE FANG" The white fang in this movie is a German sheapard -- that people in the movie call a wolf! Get real there is a big difference in a Wolf and a dog!The people that put out this DVD should not claim it is "Based on the novel by JACK LONDON WHITE FANG TO THE RESCUE"!"
TOO BAD IT IS NOT LETTERBOXED

"This is not a bad Spaghetti Western with snow, not bad for the price either, however this is a pan and scan print of obviously a 2:35 to 1 aspect ratio, but most of the action is central to the screen, so not as many "talking noses" per say....The print was grainy in some parts but oddly adds to the European feel of the film. Maurizio Merli does a credible job as the good guy and fahter figure to the boys and dog (German Shepard or Alaskan Huskie) and the heavy is played with his usual serving of ham by Henry Silva and a small supporting role by Irish star turned Italian film catylist Donald OBrian. Also for Spaghetti Western, the film is quite mild and very little violence or adult situation. The excellent score is by Carlo Rustichelli who scored several films for the late Gioseppi Collizi such as Boot Hill and Ace High. It has a few extras, for some odd reason an Little Rascal short and a dvd dictionary. I would like to see Lucio Fulci's White Fang and its sequel released as well on dvd...Overall this is not a bad family film"
More excitment than the 1972 movie

"White Fang once again bounces into action when a human friend gets killed by greedy gold-rushers. Fang and another human friend finds the body and the second man decides to switch idenities with the other. This sets up into a plot involving the murdered man's son, who is the heir to his dad's deed and the villains of the film kidnap him to sqander the fortune, while the man is falsely under suspition of the murder. It is then up to White Fang to save the day. This is the 1974 sequel to the 1972 "White Fang" movie from Italy, both from gore-horror film-maker Lucio Fulci. I kinda since the story to "Rescue" is a little blotchy. For instance, what ever motivated the guy in the first place to switch idenities with the murder victim? Maybe it was to protect the deed and confrot the murderers, but did it ever occur to him a stunt like this would get himself framed for killing a man? Who knows. And there is a little rusty acting on the human part. But "White Fang to The Rescue" isn't at all a bad film. As in the original movie, the best thing was the dog cast as the title hero. Even more of a pleasure to dog-lovers, Fang is given more to do in this film. He tries to rescue the boy from a bear, can open doors with his mouth, he again attempts to rescue the boy from the kidnappers, which is the best part of the film that shows what an unaverage smart canine Fang is. It's intresting that he can be savage or other times be loving and loyal like Rin Tin Tin. And watch out for a spatacular dramatic scene where Fang crashes through a glass window like the other film, and a tense cliffhanger where he puts his life at a limb saving the child one more time. Like its predicessor, 'Rescue" is good entertainment despite any little flaws."
