It is somewhat dishonest to call this a 'Lassie' film. This film never excited in me the same feelings as many of the older Lassie films. However, there are some positive aspects to this film.

First, Lassie (1994) is considerably more contemporary than most 'Lassie' films yet has a collie as the hero. (This might interest children ages 8 through 13 who enjoy action and dogs.)

Second, the film has a theme I appreciate - a theme of reaching out to others when others treat you cruely or degradingly.

Third, the film kept my attention more than other Lassie films or films with canine stars.

[While I enjoyed Old Yeller and Air Bud (1998), many dog films such as The Shaggy Dog (both 1959 and 2006), Where the Red Fern Grows, Shiloh, Far From Home, etc. either were incredible unrealistic or failed to keep my attention for long.]

However, there is merit in the response, "This film is too violent and uses foul language." While this Lassie film is no Stand By Me or Jaws, it isn't Mr. Roger's Neighborhood either. Some words are included in this film that parents may not appreciate their five year olds hearing, and some scenes (while not very violent) have undertones that are more likely to 'scare' parents than children.

I do not desire to give away the plot to the reader. However, the film begins with Lassie's real owner being killed in a tractor-trailer accident on wet roads. Based on this description, it is possible for the reader to further realize this is not a "sugar-coated" motion picture.

Overall, I would recommend this film to parents who have allowed their children to view 101 Dalmatians (live action) and/or films such as To Kill a Mockingbird. However, for parents with young children, Lassie films such as Lassie Come Home (1943) and Lassie (2006) might be more children friendly.

Very enjoyable update of the classic Lassie film, even if the villain of the piece is so stereotypical it's laughable (he uses guns and chews tobacco, so he must be a bad guy, right?). Gorgeous scenery filmed on location in West Virginia and the kids aren't goodie-goodies but reasonably real children. Richard Farnsworth is wonderfully warm as the grandfather. A big plus is the score by Basil Poledoris, which I enjoyed so much I bought it on CD after the film was released.

This movie was filmed in my county near my home here in Southwest Virginia. I found out when our town recently started doing movie night and chose this movie as the first showing since several of the extras in the movie still live here. We lived in another state when it was filmed so I had no idea. We ended up not being able to go see it at the town's showing so I bought it on here. My kids loved this movie. I love the scene when the family wakes up in the morning after having arrived in town on a cold rainy night and they all look out their separate windows and are taken aback by the beautiful view. We have that same view of the mountain range behind our house and it is one of the many reasons we enjoy living here. If we did not live here we would still love this movie. It has a really great plot. There are moments when I was crying like a baby. This movie is very underrated. It should have been a new classic yet I had never even heard they did a remake of Lassie. Just such a great story. The only think I did not like about the movie was how unbelievable the bad guy in the movie was for this area. He seemed like he rode in from Texas or something. lol

In a throwback to the first Lassie film and the early TV series, Lassie once again adopts a young boy and positively affects his life with love and loyalty.

Sure, nitpickers will say it's not an original plot, but the tried and true formula works well here. The scenery is beautiful, the human acting competent (with one exception), and we see the most cosmetically beautiful Lassie to date. Knowing that this dog is a direct descendant of the original, being handled by the original trainer's son, is just icing on the cake. The overall effect is heartwarming and sentimental.

The one character I found to be poorly acted was that of the villain, a neighboring rancher. His portrayal is a cheap caricature in a part that could have been made much more complex. Fortunately, his impact on the film as a whole is minimal.

If you love Lassie, you'll be in good hands and familiar territory.

I thought it was a very lovey film which was filmed beautifully and contained beautiful music! Thomas Guiry did a wonderful job as Matt! A young boy who having lost his mother feels more alone and left out than anything! Even though his stepmother(Helen Slater in one of her best performances) tries to be there for him no matter what, he finds a true friendship and love with a dog named Lassie! With this very new version of Lassie, they treated the legend very fair, and showed us a clip from the old Lassie TV show! You will love this film!
