      Universalboy2014 I NOT FUNNY, NOT GOOD, BAD! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Cool C Definitely not too bad and I enjoyed it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/26/22 Full Review Audience Member The animated movie voluntarily provides a direct reflection towards the soviet style, and to honor the dogs which were first sent unto the space in around the 1960s. The animation is unvivid, it does have some glitches however, it is still bearable to watch. The story struggles at first and I only enjoyed the last few possible minutes more because that is precisely where the innocent fun naturally began and the movie gained its cheerful soul. The dialogues are sometimes humorous and clumsy at the same time, and I do appreciate the voice-over though it isn't the best but they did give out their best. It should not be compared to Pixar's or any big production house, though, it is mediocre at its best. The kids can discover a bit about the Ancient Soviet times and Sputnik space program. The movie points out positive message like friendship, family and loyalty. With family it is ostensibly a popcorn worthy one-time watch. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is very, very good! Not great, but still very good) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Based on the actual dogs who were sent to space by the Russians during the Cold War, this sweet animation movie follows Belka and Strelka, a show dog and a street dog, training and going to space. Educational and fun film with some moments for the adults as well. Available now on Netflix. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member We could have been fur balls but we said NO! Strekla and Belka are two orphan dogs selected for the Russian space program. They have very different backgrounds. Strekla is a former circus dog that has been separated from her troop and wants to find her way back. Belka lost his father and was told he resides in the stars. Despite their different backgrounds, they hope to work together to achieve their goals. "We'd like to know what happens to the ones not chosen." "The less you know the better you are." Inna Evlannikova delivers Space Dogs in her directorial debut. The storyline for this picture is pretty interesting. The subplots of each dogs is fairly unique and interesting and the direction of the film is very unpredictable. The animation is fairly good and the voices are well selected. "My father really does live in the stars...and I'm gonna find him." I came across this film while scrolling through animated pictures on Netflix and decided to give it a shot since my daughter has a recent love affair for dog movies. I found it interesting but not gripping. It should have been gripping since it contained such wonderful sub plots; but unfortunately, there wasn't enough drama for my liking (it didn't feel dramatic despite the compelling back stories). Overall, this is worth a viewing but not worth adding to your DVD collection. "You can't just come into our hood uninvited."
