Thoughts on A Doggone Adventure

Characters – Steven Hill is the father of the family who has just seen his show cancelled on television, his show has given his kids the inspiration to follow in his footsteps one day, but now he must be the responsible father. Masters is the former owner of Murphy that had to let him go free instead of getting captured, he puts the plan together to save Murphy. Murphy is the Jack Russell with telepathic powers, he talks to the people and soon shows his intelligence while trying to stay ahead of anyone that is after him.

PerformancesThe performances in the film are good throughout, we have our adults that show the experience, which gives us a mix of the serious levels and comedic levels the film needs, while the child stars are good too, as they seem like they have been friends for a while now.A Doggone Adventure (2018)

StoryThe story here is about a telepathic dog which befriends children to stay ahead of an evil organisation that wants to use him for their own benefits. The story is targeted to a young audience and does deliver on this, but if filled with Easter Eggs for the older audience to look out for. The film does keep everything simple to follow and does sprinkle comedy in the story which will get you chuckling through the film.

Adventure/FamilyThe adventure we see unfold here is everything the children want from their own lives which is what we like seeing from an adventure film, the family side of the film is how the film is targeted to a young family member but does have references the older family members will understand.

SettingsThe film uses the idea of a haunted house and government cover ups, the settings do however show us the level of budget which is lower and makes this feel like a television series over a film.

Scene of the Movie –
The escape.

That Moment That Annoyed Me The kids are given one too many lines when it comes to puns or one liners to commentate on what is happening.

Final ThoughtsThis is a fun family film that animal lovers can enjoy, it has a nice amount of comedy which hits more than it misses and gives us a good sense of adventure.

Overall: Grab the family and enjoy.
