The dog is a legend but unfortunately this film is every cliche you've seen before. It's got energy but lacks bite. The flashback structure is also excruciating as is the tacked on upbeat ending. 2 stars
I was bored, until I cried. The story-telling wasn't the best. There's some disappointing acting here and there. But actually, "Red Dog" is quite special because he was real (much like "Hachi") and I'd like to meet him.
