An average movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was quite eager to check it out. Indeed, it is considers as many viewers as one of the most underrated animated movies ever made so I had some rather high expectations towards the damned thing. Well, to be honest, I really had a hard time to care about this movie and I don’t think I have ever seen such an overrated cult-classic bef... read more

Ever since the time of Balto's release, I wanted to see it, but I was 4 years old and couldn't pronounce his name well yet. I eventually caught it, and the truth is, this is Amblimation's best film, so this was the company going out with a bang before becoming Dreamworks SKG. Sure, the movie deviates from some of the facts behind the 1925 sled race, such as the real Balto NOT being part-wolf, whic... read more

Beautiful and very overlooked animated film

I can completely understand why people love this movie, because while for me it isn't the greatest animated movie ever(Beauty and the Beast gets that honour I'm afraid), it is a pretty darn good movie. It is certainly quite powerful and ambitious, and there are parts that tug at the heartstrings. The film isn't laden with humour as much as something like The Lion King or Castle of Cagliostro, but ... read more

A half-wolf, half-husky named Balto gets a chance to become a hero when an outbreak of diphtheria threatens the children of Nome, Alaska in the winter of 1925. He leads a dog team on a 600-mile trip across the Alaskan wilderness to get medical supplies. The film is based on a true story which inspired the Iditarod dog sled race.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (748 movies items)

" Balto, a dog goes dangerous journey through out harsh Alaska wilderness in order to deliver medicine to a remote town, and save also a sick, dying girl. Of course, they make it back in time. Just barely. Based on a event, that occurred in 1925 with a diphtheria outbreak in Nome, Alaska. Granted, Balto is indeed a hero dog, and has a statue dedicated to his and other dogs, who saved the day, it’s worth noting that the real hero dog, is Togo. That doesn’t make Balto, any less of a hero. "

“I can completely understand why people love this movie, because while for me it isn't the greatest animated movie ever(Beauty and the Beast gets that honour I'm afraid), it is a pretty darn good movie. It is certainly quite powerful and ambitious, and there are parts that tug at the heartstrings. The film isn't laden with humour as much as something like The Lion King or Castle of Cagliostro, but with the characters Boris, Muk and Luk it is evident.The animation is surprisingly detailed. Critics complained of the animation quality being dull and tacky, and when I saw that I thought did we see the same movie. The colours were fine, maybe not the most vibrant colouring in the world like FernGully for instance, but the character animation and the backgrounds are immaculate. The music by James” read more

"Movie: Netflix Instant Rating: Good!!! Summary: A wolf-dog hybrid dreams of racing in dogsled teams despite the prejudice he experiences from dogs and humans alike in this remote Alaskan town. When an epidemic spreads and a powerful winter storm prevents all aid from reaching the remote town, Balto not only has an opportunity to realize his dreams, but a responsibility to save the town who hates him. Cheering myself up after a few long days. Some of the writing is the tiniest bit silly in t"
