Storyline

A bomb-sniffing beagle is fired from the mayor's office for a faux pas. That night a mad scientist dognaps him and injects him with an elixir. The dog escapes, but now has superpowers. He's adopted by a security guard - an ex-cop, who's a widower with a moody teen son, Jack. The boy discovers that the dog, named Shoeshine by dad, has super powers, but it's their little secret. While Underdog saves people in distress, the mad scientist and his underling continue their plot to catch him and take over the city. There's also a girl Jack likes who has a dog that Shoeshine takes a shine to. Will every dog have his day? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

There Is One Really Good Thing That Can Be Said About UNDERDOG…...It's Really Short!
11 February 2016 | by (Pasto, Colombia) – See all my reviews

(Just over 75 minutes till the credits) There aren't many Disney movies that I really dislike and even fewer dog movies, so despite a personal computer projection of 5.2 STARS, I decided to watch it. The storyline was hackneyed and inane. Despite a few well known cast members, the acting redefined "Over-the-Top".

To be fair to the cast, perhaps this was director Frederick Du Chau's doing. Peter Dinklage (Station Agent) who I usually enjoy watching, was unwatchable. The supposedly "comic" dialog barely elicited a couple smiles, and sounded as if it had been ghost written by a computer.

There was about a minute or two of eye candy in a few scenes with a CGI backdrop of the city. I suppose if you've got kids or grandkids 8 or under who love dogs, they'd get a kick out of it…But I don't see how any adult would!

3*STARS*…...ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!...With KIDS!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
