Scenery: Yes / Plot: No

I adored the original Red Dog. It was Aussie, spirited, funny, genuine, human and just a great movie. It had a story to it. It WENT somewhere. It took the viewers on a journey.

Red Dog Two, on the other hand, is a meandering set of images, snapshots and scenes that can be summarised as this: Boy leaves the city to live on an outback station. Boy meets a dog. Boy lives on the station. Boy goes back to the city. Of course, there are other events (meets a girl, gets involved in Aboriginal mysticism etc) but NO central narrative tying everything together.

As a result, I felt cheated. The scenery and the careful framing of the movie in the sixties were the winners in this movie, but NOT the story. If you want Red Dog 2 to be similar to Red Dog 1, think again.

Clumsy and lightweight - not in the same league as the first Red Dog

A father takes his two young sons to see Red Dog. After the movie he describes to his oldest son how Red Dog is based on the story of a dog he had as a boy - Blue. From this we see the period in the man's childhood when Blue was his dog, their trials and tribulations living on a farm in a remote part of Western Australia.

The first Red Dog was interesting, engaging and very emotional. This movie just seems like an attempt to cash in on the success of that movie.

The story is quite lightweight and unengaging. Quite clumsy too, especially the segue from the father and sons watching the movie to it turning into a prequel to Red Dog. Even the adventures the boy and the dog go on seem very unexciting. While the original movie worked for both adults and children, this one was definitely made for kids, and kids only.

A Worthy Sequel..

An iconic Australian story of family, friendship and adventure, between a young boy and a scrappy one-of-a-kind dog that would grow up to become an Australian legend. Red Dog: True Blue is a sequel to the 2011 Red Dog film that was a big critical hit and i can see why of course. The film benefits from the strong bond between Levi Miller's Mick and Blue portrayed by Phoenix, their friendship is what makes this movie great plus Jason Isaacs doing the voice over was great as he was explaining his past to his son. What might turn off some viewers is the fact that the movie focuses more upon the kid rather than the dog like you should be expecting based on it's title and i wish that there was a tiny bit more drama and a bit less comedy but other than that? I can't find any more flaws i mean the movie is sad, fun and the performances from the entire cast are so sweet plus i love movies about dogs so if you love dogs too you will not be disappointed. (10/10)
