Doesn't completely rock, at the same time it's far from a dog

Coming from a big lifelong animation fan, 'Rock Dog' may not be on par with the best films of the best major animation studios (i.e. Disney, Pixar, Studio Ghibli), nor does it ever try to be or be anything more than it is.

It's also much better than especially anything from Video Brinquedo and, although to me critics do not deserve anywhere near the over-the-top bashing they get on the internet, 'Rock Dog' is another case of liking it much more than they did and going against the grain. 'Rock Dog' is less than perfect, but for the imperfections there are it has its heart in the right place, it knows who to aim it at and really tries to appeal to all ages and it doesn't try too hard or attempt to do more than it needs to.

'Rock Dog' may not be ground-breaking in story, a good deal of it is derivative, and some of the plotting concerning the villain's plan is a bit strange and takes away at times from the rest of the story. The film is also too short, if it were twenty minutes longer it would have fleshed out the slightly underdeveloped lead character Boni more and done more with the disapproving parent cliché.

However, the animation may not be mind-blowing or imaginative but it's colourful and detailed enough and at least the characters don't look ugly. The music is truly amazing and along with the supporting characters steals the show. In particular "Glorious", which lives up to its name.

Writing is witty and heartfelt and while the story execution is less than perfect it goes at a bright and breezy pace, is fun, is inspiring, is well-meaning and has a heart of gold that comes over movingly. Although he could have been better fleshed out more, the lead character is an easy to relate to one. Stealing the show though is the hilarious character Angus Scattergood, a character so rich in personality and so much fun he is worthy of a solo outing of some kind. Fleetwood Yak (nostalgic adults will have a good chuckle at this) is fun too.

Voice acting is good, with the best contribution coming from a note-perfect Eddie Izzard. JK Simmons is perfectly gruff as well and Luke Wilson is a likable lead. On paper, Lewis Black didn't seem right to me for a villain but he won me over, making Linnus a suitably formidable and somewhat cool villain. Mae Whitman is charming.

Overall, didn't love it but liked it better than thought. 7/10 Bethany Cox

A Nice Little Animated Movie

I'm a big animation fan, and when I stumbled on Rock Dog's Wikipedia page earlier this year, I thought it looked good. I finally watched it the other day and I enjoyed it. It doesn't approach the best Disney or Pixar movies, but then, I don't think it's trying to. It just wants to be a nice family-friendly animated flick, and it succeeds.

The voice acting was pretty solid all around, which Eddie Izzard being the obvious standout. His irreverence and British dry wit are perfect fits for the spoiled, insecure rock star Angus. Luke Wilson's Bodi is a simple but likable protagonist. I really liked Mae Whitman and Jorge Garcia's work as Darma and Germur, fellow musicians Bodi encounters on his quest. And who couldn't like Sam Elliot voicing a sage old yak?

The animation is definitely on the simpler side, particularly the backgrounds. I'm not sure if this was done intentionally, but I actually kind of like it. It gives the movie a clean, distinctive look. I would have liked a bit more variety in the background critters, but the main characters are nicely done and pretty expressive. Angus in particular is fun to watch.

There are some pretty clever lines, some funny sight gags, and some nice slapstick. The whole thing breezes by and reaches a tidy little conclusion. The message is nothing new - keep chasing your dreams and be true to who you are - but it's a good one nonetheless. If you're looking for something groundbreaking, look elsewhere. But if you just want a nice little animated movie, check it out. I'm glad I did.

A movie worth to watch

Saw this movie yesterday, and it is pretty good. I can really find the passion inside. I don't think it is fare that this movie rate so low. although the animated models are not that smooth, the back ground are simple, but i this it still told a good story. Bodi's music just like warm tides flow through my heart. those who haven't seen it, highly re command you!!
