However, both my 9 year old and I enjoyed the book far more...it gave such a deeper insight into Marty's heart, and into the world of a boy and his dog. We were both very affected by the book; it made an impression on us that the movie did not.
I especially did not like the addition of another child, a girl, into the story. It seemed Hollywood wanted to add a little childhood flirting to make the movie more sellable. That just served as a distraction from this fine story. There were many differences from the book, but this was the one that irked me.
It still was a very good movie with a heartwarming ending. If you haven't read the book, you'll like it even more cause you won't be comparing differences.
SHILOH is refreshing entertainment for the whole family.
If only we can be what our dogs believe we are. That uncompromising love made a young boy a man. You see Marty slowly changing as he learns new skills and devotes his life to saving an animal that was counting on him.
It's a great family story and one that even a cat lover could relate to. Well done and well worth seeing over and over.
Please buy it!
