Product Description

Will's (Mackensie Astin) plans to go to college are thrown into disarray when his father is killed in a freak sledding accident on his farm in wintry North America. Forced to take over the reins of the family business, he enters a cross country dog race, lured by the top prize of $100,000. However, trouble arises due to his involvement with an unscrupulous newspaper proprietor, who pays the registration fee for the contest and thereby believes to have a hold over the young man. Will finds help from an unlikely quarter - Gus, the pack dog he blames for his father's death.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best sledding movies ever made! 21 Mar 2010
I love, love, love this movie! Despite having watched it too many times to count, it still takes me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions and gets me to stand up and cheer. Yes, there is a great deal of American flag waving but I don't even mind that in this movie. As a Canadian who ran my own dog sledding team, there is a definite appeal to me. many of the aspects of the sledding are technically correct which was important to me. You cannot help but feel the sheer emotion and excitement when you watch this. A MUST watch!

Format:VHS Tape
This is a wonderful film, great for families, and perfect for evenings when you want to sit down and enjoy a film with your family. It reminds me of the Jack London films White Fang and Call of the Wild. You will find yourself believing that you are part of the film. It is great for all ages, except in the beginning there is one very sad scene that younger children may find upsetting, but otherwise children will love this film and will want to watch it again and again! I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars White Fang 12 Nov 2010
By Rosie
Bought for my 7year old who loves animal films. We both sat down and watched it together and found it very good. It was well acted and true to life. Educational without being hard work - and left you with a nice feeling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Iron Will DVD 4 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this film and viewed it prior to letting my grand children watch it. I think younger children would find it hard to understand but is excellent for older ones. A true story about a 17 year old whose father had died - leaving his mother and family in financial trouble. He also had been offered a place at university but now (financially) unable to accept. Hearing of an international dog-sledging competition with a high money prize - he decides to enter - determined to win. I won't write any more - you will have to watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100% Disney !! 8 May 2014
By David H J Ashdown TOP 500 REVIEWER
A story , based on real events , set in 1917 about a 500 mile race in Canada using dogs and sleds concentrating on rookie sledger Will Stoneman who desperately wants to win and receive the $10,000 prize to save the family farm and prove to himself that he's as much a man as his father who died in a mushing accident. The action is typically Disney with plenty of archetypal villains and almost comical anger but that doesn't affect the overall enjoyment of what turned out to be an excellent and moving film ( if you ignore the mandatory sentimentality that's present in most Disney films of this type).

I had already owned Iron Will on Video and knew it was an outstanding film, full of the ideals we strive to have. So when I saw it advertised I knew it would be a well visited dvd in my selection of films and genres. Well done Walt Disney often overlooked when making films with actors rather than animations.
