Movie Reviews

One the all-time finest dog movies! Buy it now!
al ellefson | 03/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A beautifully filmed adapation of James O. Curwood's NOMADS OF THE NORTH (quite different from the book-- an entire romance plot is dropped-- which is actually better! ), NIKKI is one of the greatest dog films ever. Here is Disney live-action at its best, with incredible scenery and a great story set in the Canadian Northwest of 1899.Also, the Indian is played sympathetically by a real native actor-- a double rarity from the time of this film's production.Your kids will love it, and its just what they should be watching... buy it before it goes out of print again.

"My great-aunt raised the dog in this film and when I saw it as a child I had a personal interest. Walt Disney made this movie and it is one that you wanted everything to turn out great for the dog. The dog is beautiful and the scenery is great. Thanks to Violet Reddington there is a classic dog film that everyone is sure to love."
An entertaining nature film with a story.

"One thing can be said about Disney in the 50s and 60s, and that is it put out some great films with animal stars, from the True-Life Adventure series to "Old Yeller" and others. This film combines a True-Life filmmaking approach with a good adventure story, and the result is entertaining family fare. The Malamute and the bear cub are adorable! Both adventure and nature commentary are shown, combined with gorgeous on-location photography (filmed in Canada) and a nice music score."
A lovely friendship between a malamute and a bear cub

"I got this movie a year ago and I have already watched it about 40 times! It caught my eye because I have an obsession with Malamutes and this is the first movie I've seen with a malamute as the main star! This movie is about Nikki a malamute and Neewah a bear cub. Watch as Nikki and Neewah go through funny and moving adventures I really recomend this movie!"
