In the tradition of Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009), this is the story of a legendary, lovable red dog who roamed the outback looking for his original master, finding his way into the hearts of everyone he meets, bringing people and communities together, some who find love, and others who find themselves. Based on true events.Written by
In one scene Peto is singing along to Rose Tattoo's song 'We Can't Be Beaten' which wasn't released until 1983 yet the movie takes place in the 1970's so it is not possible for Peto to be listening to and singing along to this song. See more »
In a flashback scene to 1971, the film Jaws is being shown at the drive-in. Jaws wasn't released in Australia until November 1975. See more »

Back in the mean old days when men were men, dogs were dogs - rougher, harder, brighter, redder...

The Red Dog film has been inspired by events, which may or may not have happened, but have become Pilbara Outback folklore. All the human characters in this film are invented, fictitious and imaginary. See more »
I was a bit weary of seeing Red Dog as I'm not always a fan of Australian movies. However I was asked to go and I never turn down a chance to go to the cinema's. I really enjoyed Red Dog. It had quite a lot of good humour, with it's fair share of terrible jokes. There was a lot of emotion packed into the film, that almost felt a bit rushed at bits. It would take you to one end of the spectrum to the other without so much as a warning. Although the film was enjoyable I feel like it is a film that would only appeal to Australian's as there was a lot of slang and jokes that only Aussie's would get, but I could be wrong. Overall I gave it an 8 out of 10 purely because Red Dog is just an awesome character! Go and give Red Dog a go, you just might enjoy it!
