      EdBoonSucks Got suckered in by the cover of this trash-heap of a movie. My first thought seeing the movie cover as a kid, was thinking that this was a terminator dog, and it's going to be awesome. But the movie was nothing like that at all. To compact all this trash into a nutshell would be to phrase it like this. Some reporter breaks into a science lab somewhere that does weird experiments on a dog that gave him the claws of a tiger, clocking ability that the predator would be jealous of, and the jaw lining of a python as an excuse to watch a dog devour a cat. (spoiler alert: This was the only reason why this movie was made, to watch a dog eat a cat.) Also this dog can also pee acid strong enough to melt a guy's break lines but somehow impregnate a female collie dog. The end. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Very bad movie! Plot sucked! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It's soo hilariously bad, it almost needs to be seen to believe. It's an absolute blast, it had me howling. Between the dog-rape, pissing acid and going predator with the vanishing I was doubled over laughing. This disc will get some good plays. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/16/19 Full Review Audience Member They should put mans best friend back on cable television that dog was a good actor and all of the actors in the movie played good.yall please play this movie on cable television for Halloween this year 2018 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member I've always hated dogs, i'm a cat lover mostly, so... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member this is the best kind of bad movie. a not so subtle political message, special effects on just the right side of terrible, a lot of people who could be doing something better with their talent and dire need to tell itself seriously. highly recommended.

      Daniel M. Kimmel Variety Chief problem is that Max the dog -- a Tibetan mastiff -- is easily the most likable character in the movie. May 8, 2005 Full Review James Berardinelli ReelViews Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Justin Brown Medium Popcorn I love a good movie that's all over the place, as ridiculous and absurd as this movie is. As much disregard as it has for filmmaking, this movie is highly entertaining. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 15, 2019 Full Review Brandon Collins Medium Popcorn An atrocious movie. Abysmal. Everybody was terrible, even the dog was terrible. Rated: 1/5 Nov 15, 2019 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Lassie, come home! Rated: 1.5/4 Mar 21, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
