This is why some people hate movies...
24 October 2000 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

The only argument for anti-movie fans to use is the inherent crud evident in such films as "Atomic Dog". Never has a more putrid slice of film made it to video, and we see why: a horrible story, surrounded by meaningless characters, an insanely predictable plot, and Christ, some of the worst camera work I have personally ever witnessed. To see this move is a crime; do yourself a favor and look at a brick for 90 minutes...its better than this.
