I just finished watching Balto. It was excellent. It is action-packed and a great adventure. Best of all it's based on a true story.
The movie is about a wolf-dog named Balto who is an outcast in an Alaska town. In the movie he travels a long way to get anti-toxin to save the kids in the town who are all very sick. Throughout his journey he gets pushed around, falls down many mountains, and almost freezes to death.
In the movie there is a group of fierce dogs led by Steele. Steele doesn't like Balto because he is a faster runner and because the girl dog he likes named Jenna likes Balto. My favorite characters in the movie are Balto, Jenna, and Boris the goose. I liked Boris because he helped to take care of Balto.
I would recommend this movie for all ages. Even though this movie does have some scary parts it is still great for all ages. Everything turns out ok so it won't scare away the little kids. See this as part of a family film series on Mark Cuban's HDNet Movies Channel.

Excellent, action-packed production. Good adaptation of a true story, demonstrating the idea to "keep trying, don't quit." Children identified with rejection and praise. Encouraged reading the book. More educational than expected.
