25 October 2007 | Dontaskuwontlikeit
| Wonderful family movie
This movie evokes so much emotion in me, just thinking about it. This movie came out 1 day before my daughter was born. She still loves it to this day,

and now my 6 year old son enjoys it. He has watched it three times since i got it on DVD! This movie teaches a wonderful lesson. And is just a wonderful true movie!

If you can get this movie for your children. They will enjoy it for years to come, as will you!And i really don't need 10 lines to explain to you how good this movie is.

When you get the chance to watch it, that will be enough.

Sled dog: Looks like he's hurt bad, Steele.
Star: Wh-what do we do now, Steele?


The resting angle of Balto's boat is steeper in exterior than in interior shots.

Crazy Credits

After the credits, Fievel from "An American Tail" (1986) pushes the Amblimation logo into place, then stands next to it and his hat falls down over his eyes.
