The performances are convincing, especially from our canine friend Rexxx. His stunts are in fact highly commendable (he even has skills on a skateboard!) – though you have to wonder whether special effects were involved sometimes.
The narrative is engaging, with a number of sub-plots, making it a film that will entertain every kind of kid out there. Although the storylines are quite stereotypical, that’s what makes the film enjoyable; we’re familiar with the general outline so we’re better able to engage with the characters.
The only really irritating thing about the film is it’s reliance on flashbacks. However, one has to be sympathetic to the fact that it is a film about a dog and seeing as none of us can claim to be fluent in Bark, flashbacks are probably the best way to communicate what’s going on in Rexxx’s furry little head.
A charming family film, Firehouse Dog gets a teeth-baring nod from our quarters.

A heart-warming tale about a spoilt mutt who’s brought down to earth and finds himself loving it.
Just another typical Tom Cruise action film, with nothing to get too excited about. The film is loaded with action-film stereotypes and cheesy one-liners. Read More »

Hands of Stone is a bland, unlikable portrayal of a real-life boxer that struggles to hit the highs of Rocky IV let alone Raging Bull or the original Rocky. Mark this one down as “for boxing fanatics only”. Read More »
