Balto Reviews

Just in case anyone was wondering why there's a memorial to a sled dog in Central Park, Steven Spielberg's animation unit gives us this slick but hackneyed tribute to the heroic hound of the title. Balto, we learn, led a well-publicized mission of mercy through the snows of Alaska in 1925, hauling diphtheria vaccine to the children of Nome. Even your kids will find this one overfamiliar, but "Baconizers" -- the frighteningly obsessive players of a certain Internet fad game -- will be thrilled to learn that Kevin Bacon supplies the hero's voice.
