Ok. Balto 3: Wings of Change. By far the most controversial of the Balto trilogy. There were so many things Whienstein could have done. I think the most important thing Whienstein could have done in this movie is give a good detailed story to Kodi and his friends (Kirby, Ralph, Dusty). I didn't see that, it sidetracked way too many times over to Stella and Boris, and in my opinion was a complete waste of time, and talent. There was zero need for Stella, or a relationship with Boris at all. What Whienstein should have done was, again, add a story, and add a relationship with two of the four characters (Ex: Kodi/Dusty or Dusty/Ralph) and carry on with that. Cut Stella out, and make Boris his original self, Balto's guide, and add the humor of his annoyance to Muk and Luk. There was no point to adding Stella, and because of that relationship with Boris, and not Kodi and/or his friends, it has began this really controversial argument between the fans.
Another thing about Balto 3, Balto 2 had left me questions, but when I saw Balto 3, it answered maybe two, but added 10X the amount more. This is why a Balto 4 should be made (I'm not saying there is, don't get too exited). A plot that answers all, if not most of the questions that have dumbfounded most Balto fans.
And now for a little warmer feedback. I did enjoy the new team, Balto's son, Kodi, and his friends Kirby, Ralph, and Dusty. In fact, Kodi is my favorite character in the trilogy. And it really upsets me when Kodi, Balto's son, get almost no recognition. Sure he became the hero in the end, yaddah yaddah yaddah, but no backround story. For example, a relationship, or a riverary with another sled team. Personally, I'd LOVE to see both of that. Also Kodi is the only one of Balto's pups to be in Nome that we know of. There should be some action with the kid, you know? Not following exactly like his father's footsteps. That just bothers me, that's all.
Kodi's personallity also bothers me as well. And again, he is my favorite character, but if I was the scriptwriter to Kodi, I'd make him more independant. More of a leader instead of a follower. To me Balto's so should have much more a genetic leadership talent.
Anyways, all I'm trying to say is that Balto 3 could have been so much better. More like A LOT better. I just hope Universial gets what I'm saying here, and I hope who ever is reading this feels the same way I do.
