I was expecting a heart wrenching dog story, like “Hachi: a Dog’s Tale” or “My Dog Skip”. Instead I got a B-movie with acting similar to “Beethoven”. Only it wasn’t a comedy. It was hard to become emotionally involved when you could tell the actors were running lines with zero feeling behind it.
The story was so exaggerated, it was silly. Any amount of thought, will poke holes in the entire idea.
The special effects were poorly done. Camera angles were shot from strange angles for no reason. For example, a scene was filmed with the camera viewing the actors through a fan. Why? Was the camera man hoping to distract us from how horrible this film is?
I was hoping for a simple plot about a broken dog, and a troubled youth who find a way to heal each other. Instead I got a strange mash up of junk. This movie was well intended and I wish it had been better.
