After young Marty Peterson rescued Shiloh from his abusive owner, Judd Travers, he thought his troubles were over. But when Judd starts threatening to take "his" dog back, Marty is afraid of losing the best friend he's ever had. Even after Shiloh's keen senses help save Judd's life, the old man refuses to mend his mean-spirited ways, convincing everyone in town he's just too nasty to change. Now, in a long-short gamble to keep the dog he loves, Marty sets out to prove that just like a mistreated animal, a man filled with hate can be healed by the power of kindness. Written by
Better than expected sequel that is just as heartwarming as the first one
This is a very heartwarming film and has a very nice message that is perfect for a family film, though not quite as warm as the original, and is a tad predictable. And perhaps an adult may find the screenplay a little saccharine. But on the whole it is beautifully filmed, has nice music and the acting is very good, with Zachary Browne appealing as Marty and Scott Wilson great as the ever hateable Judd. Plus Shiloh was adorable. Also worth of note are David Moriaty, Rod Steiger and Caitlin Wachs, who bring their charming supporting characters to life. Overall, despite its flaws, Shioh 2 is a very pleasant family film, that is well meaning and not at all a bad way to pass the afternoon. 7/10 Bethany Cox
