Get your Popcorn ready because I absolutely love Dogs, and when I saw the trailer for this I quickly called me Dog over so we could watch it together. Harrison Ford is a absolute legend and I can honestly say that there are few Harrison Ford movies that I don’t like.

I had a couple issues with this movie, it all felt very rushed and for some reason the story splits between two main characters, which kind of threw me off. I also felt like they could of had a little better continuity. There were 4-5 different stories that didn’t really intertwine.

The movie was enjoyable, and Ford was great, but the biggest flaw in this movie was the fact that all the dogs in every scene are CGI. No real dogs in any of the scenes, I understanding doing this if the Dogs have lines and a dialogue but they don’t, so it just seemed odd. The CGI is probably why the budget for this movie was $100M plus – if they would of used real Dogs, it may have reduced the budget and made it much more enjoyable.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is kind of a fun family movie, although, there is some seriously heavy parts. I enjoyed watching it with my dog but he didn’t enjoy it as much because the Dogs were all CGI in the movie.
