This movie came out when I was about six, but I've watched many times. I was thrilled that a sequel was coming out, since I had been secretly wishing for one. Balto and Jenna seemed pretty much in charcter (Balto I believe right on the nail with the stresses of being a father). However, there were a few unbelieveble parts, such as Balto "still getting teased around town because he's part wolf", because at the end of the 1st movie he seems to have the respect of all of Alaska. Also, it isn't very credible he would still be living in that boat. Now, let me shift the subject to the lovely Aleu. Aleu was, well, a little bit whiney, but she's no more of a primadonna than my own dog! I liked the new idea of putting Balto's wolf heritage into the movie, so that Aleu finally found the place where she belonged. Nuk, Yak, and Sumac were funny, especially with their Russian(?) accents. Nava was also fun, kinda like the Obi Wan Kenobi of the Balto movies. However, I hated Niju since I think he looks a little emo and his personality was cruel. To those NijuXAleu fans: it's not happening. He doesn't deserve her. I remember crying and clinging to my Uncle's dog Jake when Aleu left Balto, but hey, I was six. Seeing it again did make me a bit sad, but inspired by Aleu's courage. I highly reccommend this to wolf lovers SEVEN and up!
