Nice Sequel

Guide Dog (2006)

*** (out of 4)

Sequel to GUARD DOG has the same dumb canine walking down the street when he notices a job opening for a guide dog. He takes the job and goes out with the blind but he keeps getting them killed due to a variety of strange occurrences. This sequel isn't nearly as funny as the first film but there's still plenty here to love. Once again the colored pencil drawings are incredible to look out as the detail and weird visuals it gives are something truly marvelous to look at. There were times when I was drawn away from what was going on in a scene just because the beautiful colors really caught my focus and wouldn't let it go. Another major plus here is that once again we're greeted with a very dark sense of humor, which of course means this here isn't for kids. The various ways that the blind people keep getting killed might turn some people off but trust me, it's all done in good fun and it works. The highlight of the film would have to be the sequence where the dog is trying to walk the woman across the road before she gets hit by a car.
