Overview

Balto is an animated trifle, based loosely on a true story from the 1920s, that may offer some amusement for young children. A live-action intro and outro set the stage for the story of Balto (voiced by Kevin Bacon), a stray who's half dog and half wolf, who is shunned as a half-breed outcast by both humans and his own kind. Balto does have some friends, like the goose Boris (Bob Hoskins) and two polar bears named Muk and Luk (Phil Collins), but he is particularly resented by canine pack leader Steele (Jim Cummings), with whom he is competing for the affections of Jenna (Bridget Fonda). He eventually becomes a hero when he guides a medication-carrying sled to a townful of sick kids in the wilds of Alaska. The film features a number of positive messages (subtlety is not its strong point), but it may not feature enough humor or excitement to keep anyone but the very smallest viewers engrossed.

This movie is a great film! Animations look wonderful, the main characters are well voiced and are each given a life of their own, and the story itself is powerful and meaningful. Screw the fact that this is a kids movie and you just might enjoy it! Once you get into the story, you'll find it's not quite as kiddish as you thought. Also the fact that NOBODY SINGS in the film is a plus all its own! There's not a whole lot of action in the first part of the movie but it gets better later on. I actually wouldn't recommend this movie for smaller children because it's story might be harder to follow. Over all this movie is great! I loved watching it as a kid and still watch it occasionally during Christmas.
