Atom User Reviews
This movie sort of gave me “A Dog’s Purpose” kind of vibe but when I watched the film, I fell in love with the main character. The film title speaks for itself and I recommend it for children 11 and under because I don’t think you’d find it as interesting, unless you’re an animal-loving, vegan like myself! Other than that the film made me pretty emotional, and the cast was adorable!
the homosexuality in the movie was completely unnecessary. from the rainbow collar on the dog and the camera focusing on the men's wedding bands, it wasn't needed at all in a kid's movie
The best thing I can say about A Dog’s Way Home is that it’s an exceptional film, that you’d find on the Hallmark Channel. Science has yet to count just how many strings the human heart has, but A Dog’s Way Home tries to pull every damn one of them.
The film pretty much packs every canine cliché imaginable into its running time, but one look into the soulful eyes of its four-legged star will melt all but the coldest of hearts.
Putting a dog in crisis might seem like an easy way to create a great story, but in a family film, featuring a helpless canine in constant peril plays as emotionally manipulative and, frankly, slightly traumatizing. A Dog’s Way Home is a joyless jaunt that offers an adorable canine star and not much else.
