After Eddie shoots the deadbolt lock (which wouldn't have opened the lock anyway) in the back door of the room where the incubator was located, the door is opened to reveal there is no strike plate or even a hole in the door frame to accept the bolt. The deadbolt could not have been locked. The strike plate for the doorknob is visible, but there should have been another one above it. See more »
Whoever came up with this rather derivative quasi sci-fi idea of a dog who is part computer and able to communicate via an implant is probably dismayed at the way it was all put together. It looks like a pilot for a series that wasn't picked up, and no wonder thanks to the lame direction and overall weak production work.
First, what 's the idea of introducing the dog halfway through the film, rather than earlier? That's pretty bad form, as the whole idea of the dog/cop team is what piques our interest here. And then, even though it's 1991, everything looks like leftover 1985 Miami Vice stuff, especially Chris Mulkey's mullet haircut. Also, there's no pacing, no suspense nor tension anywhere in the film, and very few laughs provided by the dog/cop interaction, where one would expect more than what's given here.
