justin t There was no horror, no comedy, and no extreme violence. All there was in the movie was a psychotic dog that chased a deranged man. The story makes very little sense as it is not told in the correct order. The ending proved to be the only entertaining moment as the robot dog does its terminator impression. What should have been a violent tongue-in-cheek monster creature movie was just a boring and lacklustre yawn. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review kevin c A serial killer terrorizes a group of mostly unlikeable people at a neighborhood liquor/convenience store after hours during their poker game. This wasn't terrible although the lack of empathy we have for the potential victims doesn't do this movie any favours. You automatically just end up rooting for the hot chick. Nice to see Steve Guttenberg in it at least. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Rottweiler is a premium example of false advertising. The titular robo-pup makes barely so much as a cameo, instead we see an attempt at a political commentary masquerading itself as a sci-fi creature feature. In practice it fails at being both these things. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Sex and Violency sellz gud aint it? Another stupid SciFi piece of shit! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic gore and a somewhat interesting plot. Extra marks for the complete lack of CGI. Well done Mr Yuzna! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member JEEZ, I PICKED THREE ROTTEN MOVIES TO RENT TONIGHT. THIS IS AN AWFUL FILM. HAVING TWO ROTTWEILER'S AS PETS GROWING UP, I AM OFFENDED BY HOW THEY ARE PORTRAYED. MY ROTTWEILERS WERE THE SWEETEST DOGS ON EARTH. CHEAPIE FILM, BADLY DONE IN MOST EVERY WAY.
