Goofs

In the first dog-feeding scene, a soldier gives a dog named Hercules a bowl of food. Hercules' dog house has a sign that says "Hercules" on it. In a following scene, Smythe gives Hercules a dog treat, and he's in a different dog house, without the name sign. In the rest of the shots, he's in the original dog house with the name sign.

An enjoyable story
6 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

War and dogs. This suggests that it is a film for boys who have a pet dog or who long to have a pet dog. But, girls can enjoy it too. I saw this film on television when I was younger, and it was a film that I watched several times from a VHS. The story is about a family dog who is not disciplined and who is forced to leave his family and join the army where he has a difficult-at-first new owner. In the end, it all works out between the undisciplined dog and his new master, the soldier. It's a very realistic film with enough action to keep the heart-warming story of friendship interesting. I would recommend this film to children from about 8-years-old. Good!
