Editorial Reviews

Jock the Hero Dog is a family animated adventure that tells the heart-warming, coming-of-age story of a young man and his best friend, a lovable and fearless dog named, Jock. Narrated by Donald Sutherland, the story takes place in the beautiful outback of South Africa. Through a series of life-lessons and bonging experiences, Jock, the runt of the litter, grows to become a beloved and trusted companion, a bold adventurer, and a living embodiment of the power of courage, self-belief and redemption.

Customer Reviews

This is a great movie for the whole family!
Brenda
It was also a little too dark and scary for my 5 year old as well, and the scary parts just seemed pointless and out of place.
J. Payne
This is a brave attempt at South Africa's first 3d animation, but it is truly "the worst dog movie I have ever seen".

One of the best animated animal tales I have seen in a while. Strong characters and plot and well placed songs. Im at a loss why others have given this movie such a low undeserved rating this is very much a five star movie if you love animated talking animal videos. Maybe it could be scary for five year olds not every animated video is ment for those under five. There are humans in this movie, the main character is Jock the dog. Standard animals can talk to each other but not humans type movie. Talking animals in this movie are as follows Jock a dog, his mother and litter mates, a rooster, and a few monkeys. This is very much a dog lovers movie however.

Format: DVD
At the end of 2007 Duncan MacNeillie, together with a small team of animators, relocated from Nelspruit to Johannesburg to start production on what would become Jock the Hero Dog. It took a team of 25 animators 3-years to complete the film. Midway through 2009 the decision was made to complete the film in Stereoscopic so as to capitalize on the popularity of 3D computer generated feature films. The end result was released (domestically) on July 24th, 2012 and arrived to DVD on September 25th of that same year.

First thing you are going to notice about Jock the Hero Dog is that there is no shortage of critics willing to tear the film apart on just about every conceivable level. To be honest, coming from a world where Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks have spoiled us with literally all a computer animated feature film could & should be; the animation quality of Jock is going to come up short. Considering 2012 wasn’t all that long ago, one sort of expects a higher degree of visual presentation. However, I am a big advocate of the theory that pretty graphics do not a good movie make so that being said does Jock overcome its visual limitations to deliver a solid story? Well, yes and no. On the one hand it’s a sweeping tale painted against a South African landscape at the turn of the century. It’s based on actual events and encompasses the idea of the bond between man and dog. On the other it’s a bit unfocused on its intended audience. It lacks almost any and all humor and a few of the themes presented are rather melancholy by nature.

First, let’s talk about the good. The vocal cast is quite stellar including the efforts of Helen Hunt, Ted Danson, William Baldwin, Mandy Patinkin, Donald Sutherland and singer/ songwriter Bryan Adams as the titular character.

There is a lot of information in this movie that lets children know some lessons in life they could encounter. Knowing how to apply what they seen in Jock in life's day to day expectations compared to their own situations. Plus it keeps their attention span to the movie instead of picking at each other.

Not an Oscar winner, but a well-made animated feature that my granddaughter likes, so that's enough of an endorsement for me. The price and shipping went smoothly, so I have no complaints.
