Technically one of the better but also one of the least interesting of 70s wilderness adventure westerns inspired by The Call of the Wild, The Cry of the Black Wolves and, of course, Fulci’s White Fang. I wound’t blame D’Amato for the film’s shortcomings, as he does a good job capturing some beautiful snowy locations and the few actions scenes, with his trademark POV shots and handheld camerawork, are quite good. The problem is the clichéd and uninteresting story (clumsily built around one lengthy flashback sequence) which doesn’t know where to go. Carlo Rustichelli’s score is at least partially recycled from White Fang to the Rescue but is quite ok nevertheless.
NOTE: Even if the final twist is very stupid and predictable, I dislike the way the database gives it away. Someone should edit the synopsis.
