“I recently saw this movie again which Iu0026#39;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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAlthough there is the very sad, and tragic scene where Willu0026#39;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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis is a u0026quot;feel goodu0026quot; type of movie with of course, a 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.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eYou 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 movieu0026#39;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 u0026quot;IRONu0026quot; Will is clearly an accurate way to describe him.”
