What I'm getting to is this: If you like "Old Yeller" then you will love this movie. It's one of those movies that will make you laugh and cry and then laugh again. Not sure if this flick will be an instant classic but it will one that I will watch more than once.
ok, what else to say?
This is a heartwarming drama that can be sad, very funny, and a bit quirky at time with a great soundtrack. This movie is based on true stories about a real dog. It isn't just about a dog, it is about the people too, but the dog is the star.
The big animal movie everyone was talking about was 'War Horse.' In my opinion this blows warhorse away....much different movie but I enjoyed this one MUCH more.
Most will laugh and will also be inspired...and a bit in awe of this amazing dog...many of you will cry, but I think almost everyone will love this movie. Your whole family can watch this movie.
This is an Australian movie and won best picture in Australia.
Like another reviewer said, don't let the beginning throw you off. It takes a little while to warm up to. It's a low budget Australian film that takes place in a dirty, arid mining town in Australia populated almost entirely by dirty, unattractive men, and a dog. Sorry dog fans, but even the canine star is kind of homely and is not really called upon to do any heavy duty doggie acting. In fact, nothing in this film is attractive (well, okay, Rachael Taylor is gorgeous).
For a modern, family-friendly film, the pacing is a bit slow, and the filmmaker loves to suddenly freeze-frame and throw up a caption describing the character being shown... a technique that is very off-putting to me and I was about to write off the movie after the first 15 minutes, and yet, despite what's starting to sound like a negative review, the movie works for me. As you get to know the miners and their quirky back stories (all related to Red Dog in some way) you start to pick up on an inner beauty to the story that really left me thinking about it the next day... a very good sign.
This movie is suitable for all ages. A couple of bits of crude phrases (hardly worth mentioning) and apparently the couple spends the night together (not shown) on the first date, but I would have no problem sharing this with children - although they may find it a little slow as the "magic" of the story might be lost on them.Read more ›
