It's no definitive masterpiece but it's damn close.
At first rather annoying in its heavy emphasis on reenactments, this movie ultimately proves fascinating, simply because the complicated, highly dramatic tale it tells still almost defies belief.
While it is a pity that the story wasn't told with more visual finesse, this is trivial compared to our real-world problems. It takes a good movie to put that into perspective.
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
I'm not a dog-person and I don't have kids. Still, this movie was fun and a nice way to spend an evening.It's obviously a kids movie, but even though it's a simple story line there are plenty of layers and jokes for adults to keep everybody happy. The dog is dangerously cute with those big blue eyes, no wonder he gets away with stealing all kinds of things for so long. Nobody would ever believe a dog would steal, let alone one that cute (let's be honest, we all judge!) The two bad guys have a 'Home Alone'-feel to them, just simple humor that every kid will enjoy.Only a 7, because of the simplicity of the story. Nice enough movie to watch, parents will probably rate it higher.
