5.0 out of 5 stars Oh YEA it is a WINNER! September 19, 2012
Just finished watching RED DOG! Amazing performance by the dog character - great eye expressions! The dog is very amusing and holds your interest throughout the movie. And no animal movie goes unfinished without pulling on your heartstrings. This was a very entertaining movie. Do not let the first 10 minutes put you off - takes a little getting used to the characters - but once you do, you will not regret it. Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars The New Old Yeller Movie October 7, 2012
I've always thought that one of the best "dog" movies of all time was the classic Disney movie; "Old Yeller" and I've often wondered why Disney hasn't done a modern remake of that great movie. I'm a 62 year old ex-marine and I still get a little teary eyed with I see that that movie.

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.

I just finished viewing the film as a rental on Netflix. Now I'm putting in an order here at Amazon for numerous copies to give as Christmas Gifts - the film is THAT exceptional. Based on true events folks, and of course there probably have been some changes made to make the film version more 'palatable' for the masses. But at the heart of the story are the very true emotions of an American man in remote 1971 Austraila who didn't choose the dog - the dog chose him. And everyone who came into the life of this dog in one way or another is touched forever, as you will be too. To be sure, there is a great deal of comedy, and very broad comedy at that. But it's very effective. Children will laugh at certain events and Adults will laugh at events the children won't probably get. Everyone will be pleased with this film. Still, with all the comedy, there is this very real dramatic vein that runs throughout, mostly from the half-way mark to the end that will enable Adults to be carried along. And let me tell you this, there will not be a dry-eye in your living room at film's end. Even now while I'm writing this and thinking back on this passage in the film, I am tearing up: 'Have YOU seen John?', 'Have YOU seen John?'. (You'll know what I mean about that question after viewing the film.)

4.0 out of 5 stars What an odd little film... but I liked it October 4, 2012
I had no idea what to expect (other than anticipating the typical "dog movie" genre), so I was pleased that it gave me something a little different. The box will lead you to believe it is a romantic comedy for dog lovers, and yeah, it's a little bit of that, but the romance is not the major focus of this film.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic April 7, 2012
I am not a huge dog movie fan so I put off watching this movie for a while, however, I have to say this is an excellent movie! I was very surprised by this. I am also from an iron mining area so that was a nice touch as well.

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.
