Autistic Reviewers Opinion Of This Movie.
25 December 2016 | by autisticreviewersSee all my reviews

Australia's favorite dog is back and this time he has a background of where he came from! The most loyal and Australian dog has become a worldwide sensation and has made everyone around the world fall in love with him.

A little boy named Mick (Levi Miller) has moved from Perth and into the outback with his Grandfather until he gets his life on track. Within a couple of days a storm hits and the next day after the storm he finds a little puppy covered in blue. He names him "True Blue" only to later discover he is a Red looking Dog. For a whole year they grow a friendship that could never be broken. Together we see the love they have for each other.

All in all, this movie is just like the first one. It's like a refreshment or reminder of the dog we fell in love with. It offers nothing new nor nothing incredible. Acting wasn't that good, and it tries too hard on making Australian jokes that aren't really that funny. The only great actor in this was "red Dog" himself. By the time you get to the ending you see just how sad it is when best friends have to go away. But either way red Dog really was an inspiration to Australia and he's a great example of what a true friend really is. The Autistic Reviewers give this a 6/10. 2.5/5 stars. It's worth seeing. But if you haven't already check the first one out!
