What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Savage Dog

    "Dog" stands out amongst its Direct-to-Video peers thanks to a unique pre-Vietnam War Indochina setting and cinematic look. Director Jesse V. Johnson ultimately abandons his more artistic aspirations halfway through in favor of chunky gore and blood-letting, but at least he secured what constitutes an all-star cast for a low-budget martial arts vehicle: Scott Adkins, Keith David, Marko Zaror, and Cung Le?

  • msmichel's rating of the film Savage Dog

    There are many who love these eighties' style straight-to-video low budget action flicks and there is certainly still a big market internationally for them...alas there are also many of us who expect a lot more. OK of its kind with enough bare knuckle boxing to keep some fight fans entertained.

  • Eastern Film Fans's rating of the film Savage Dog

    There's something that sets this film apart from others, not just an impressive cast which we'll take about in a moment, but its setting. Set in Indochina 1959 it feels like Jesse is trying to get a truly original period to set an action story in and it really works well. our review here
