Rock Dog Review

Rock Dog is the new animated Family adventure movie by Mandoo Pictures and the Huayi Brothers. The Movie is based on the Chinese graphic novel Tibetan Rock Dog by Zheng Jun and features the voices of Luke Wilson, Eddie Izzard, Matt Dillon and Sam Elliott. Rock Dog may seem a little like a rip off of the recent very successful Sing Movie and that may or may not be true. That doesn’t make it a bad movie, far from it as this movie is quiet entertaining and funny in its own way.

The Story follows Bodi (Luke Wilson) who is a young Tibetan Mastiff who is expected by his father Khampa (J. K. Simmons) to be the next guard of the sheep Village of Snow Mountain which is on constant alert for attacks from the wolves. When a passing plane drops a radio out of the sky and it is found by young Bodi, His dreams suddenly change as he now want to leave Snow Mountain and follow in the footsteps of his hero the singing rock god Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard).  What follows is a crazy adventure as bodi chases his dreams in the big city.

Rock dog has a running time of approx. 90 minutes which perfect really as its long enough to still keep you interested throughout. The Younger ones will especially like this one as there is plenty of songs and music throughout. The soundtrack may not be a string of classic his like the sing movie but still it has a very good selection of music. Rock Dog is not going to end up being a classic but still it’s a nice one to bring the kids too.

Rating 3/5
