I recently saw this movie again which I've now seen probably 4 or 5 times. If you like true stories as I do, then it makes the story that much more interesting and entertaining to watch.Although there is the very sad, and tragic scene where Will's father drowns in the river, the rest of the movie is uplifting and you find yourself cheering for Will, as he physically struggles to make it to the finish line in exhaustion, almost beaten by one of the two Indians who later help him stand up as Will is greeted by his mother.This is a "feel good" type of movie with of course, a <more>
sinister and evil Swedish man who will do anything to win the race, at the cost of the other dog sled racers who have done him no wrong. Until his sled dogs stop and refuse to race on, and turn on the Swede man in a rage, having been whipped continuously throughout the movie and terribly mistreated. They attack him and he is finally out of the race, and Will is vindicated.You will feel both uplifted and yet almost feel like crying as Will is greeted by his family and many others who have come to the race at the movie's end to cheer him on to victory. This is the kind of movie that you need to watch if you feel like giving up on your goals. Will proves that despite his many adversities and struggles with fatigue, muscle soreness, a rival enemy, and bitter cold weather, that you can accomplish anything. His nickname "IRON" Will is clearly an accurate way to describe him.
Based on a true story, this journey begins in South Dakota in 1917. Will Stoneman is a 17 year old young man who loses his father. Will is left with devastated until one morning he notices a flyer of the Carnival Derby a dog sled race from Winnipeg, Canada to St. Paul Minnesota in which his father was thinking of competing. After getting his mother, Maggie Stoneman, to comply, she gets Ned Dodd, an Indian who lives with the family, to get Will straight into training. Once Will arrives to the competition, he is greeted with a ridicule of laughter, yet do they know how bad he wants to win. <more>
Will that be enough to get Will from the beginning to end of the race and win, in one piece through the meanest, toughest stretch of land, and weather conditions that he has yet to embark on?
This is a wonderfully inspirational movie that we loved! (by agbtg7)
It is indeed difficult to find excellent, inspirational movies that are based upon true stories like this one is! At the conclusion of this movie, both my friend and I were moved by it's full impact!My friend and I have both lived hard lives. To see a movie such as this is very helpful for those who have had hard lives. I am proud to have added this movie to my DVD Movie Library. Along with such movies as; "March of the Penguins," and "One Night With the King," these are all movies I have found to be both inspirational and uplifting during a time when one can use all <more>
of the edification one can acquire.Not only have I rated this movie with my highest rating possible at a 10, but if your rating went higher, I would give it a higher rating. I will definitely be watching this over and over again. Thank you very much for this opportunity of sharing how two of us thoroughly enjoyed this move. More like this kind of movie I would love to see! Thank you very much! Sincerely, Michael G. Murphy.
I don't watch a lot of Disney's live action movies because the majority of them can be broken down to the same plot, but Iron Will is worth watching because it's supposed to be based on a true story. It has great strength and determination and explores the extent of the human spirit as well as pride the USA once had in its heroes. A young hero, Mackenzie Astin, formerly of the "Facts of Life" series, against all odds, both human and natural, somehow wins a snow sled race and becomes a man in the process. Like I said, typical Disney fare, but this movie tells that story <more>
much more strongly and directly than any other Disney version. I'd play this movie to teach my kids some values.
Hike! Hike! Hike!!! The Hunger Games ain't got S*** on this movie! I was privileged, I repeat, PRIVILEGED to have grown up with this film! VERY appropriately rated as a "Disney" film, yes! Families all around can enjoy this film! Along with "Balto", this flick introduced me to the sport of dog sledding! Also introduced me to many big Hollywood names, like Kevin Spacey, Brian Cox, Brian Ogden Stiers RENOWNED for Disney movies , and especially August Schellenberg R.I.P . They all played their appropriate roles. Although, I'll admit, I don't often like Kevin <more>
Spacey as an actor - always seems to act as antisocial & controversial characters. Also don't forget Richard Riehle, the guy who says "If you're late again, you're fired", near the beginning of the movie; classic character actor of the century in over 300 films!!! . Plus, I like the idea of John Terry playing Will's father, and just all-round playing father figures - he's just so kind & likable.I'm utterly surprised to this day why this film is so overlooked & underrated! After all, 1994 *was* the big year of MANY big blockbuster films; maybe that's why it was so overlooked. Mackenzie Astin, the brother of Sean Astin Sam from Lord of the Rings , is great in this film! Such an under-appreciated actor! IMO, he's even hotter & more talented than Leo DiCaprio. He plays a REAL ACE in this movie - I fully realize just how well-written his character is! If more people in the world were like his character, Will Stoneman, the world would be a much better place to live!A 6.5!!!?????? SERIOUSLY!??? This flick should switch around ratings with "Never Cry Wolf", which is a '7.6' a horrid & disappointing film that was downright BORING & ridiculous & uncomfortable to sit through, and should be totally removed from the "Walt Disney" category!!They're just so many good things in this film. The train always gets fabulous shots, too. That scene on the bridge of trying to outrun the train will always seem to scare me. LOLThe frostbite in this movie really sends shivers down my spine - after all, it was the movie that introduced me to the reality of "frostbite". Just looking at Stoneman at the end of the movie, he looks messed up! He gave everything he had to finish that race!I mean it, if I ever go on live TV, I'll make sure to bring this movie with me to show on air, just to give it the attention it deserves & needs!Disney Channel! Get this film on the air sometime! Or at the very least, Disney, re-release this movie so that we can again see the true story about Will Stoneman on the big screen!Beautifully directed, beautifully shot, and beautifully acted!9/10!!
One Of Disney's Better Efforts (by ccthemovieman-1)
How much of this story is true is up for dispute. I suspect most of it is highly exaggerated. Nonetheless, it is inspirational and fun to watch: an excellent adventure tale.The movie reminded me of "White Fang" with the winter scenery and the young hero, played by MacKenzie Astin, looking and sounding much like Ethan Hawke. The story was simply about a dog-sled race in the early part of the 20th century.The picture is beautifully shot, especially the train scenes, and looks very good on DVD. The villains in here aren't as despicable as in other films, so it's more pleasant <more>
to watch. I enjoyed the entire story except for the whistling at the finish line which was a bit stupid, but that's minor.This is one of Disney's better efforts.
Here's a "feel good" movie that I showed to a bunch of 8th graders who are "way too cool" to ever like something with a plot so contrived. I have seen it at least 10 times in the last two years. It has never failed to produce emotional responses, at least as early as when Gus gets savaged by the bad guy's dog, and Will takes out a gun obviously thinking of putting him down , and most certainly when Will slugs the guy late on that evening. It has the predictable villain, and other events that most people could forecast, but I had kids who otherwise are apathetic <more>
standing up and cheering as the events unfolded. My conclusion: kids seem to be cynical and jaded, but when you give them a reason to be optimistic, they have hope and are uplifted. "Iron Will" inspires me; particularly when I see its effect on middle school students. I would rate it even higher if I couldn't predict many events in the movie. This really works well with other Iditerod/dog stories.
We rented this film because Kevin Spacey is in it. When it came on, my daughter 12 yrs old exclaimed "Oh no, not another cheap Disney film!" My wife also made noises of discontent and I was wondering why Kevin was in it and if I'd made a terrible mistake.Well, it was good. True it had some bad Disney unrealistic heart-jerking story in it, especially at the end. The bad guys were really Disney evil, but the rest of the film worked.Kevin Spacey gives his best at whatever role he tackles, and this is no exception. The sledding scenes are very good and it is really cold - you can <more>
feel it, and so can the actors judging by the breath.The film get a few tears out and we decided that, although we never would have rented it if we knew it was a Disney film, we liked it. We give it 8.
