Way too many different tones/genres squeezed into the same movie. Was almost like half a dozen people each wrote part of a screenplay and pasted them together, with the caveat that none of them ever took creative writing. Character motivations and thought processes were…for lack of a better word, absent.
Beautifully shot, though.
Bad acting, even worse writing for the human part. The writing was poor, hard to believe the thought process of the protagonist. The dog part of the film took a very strange turn, it went from drama, to adventure to a zombie-esque b-movie sequence and an insultingly nonsensical ending. But the cinematography and doggy acting was very good.
The premise is so cool, but unfortunately the execution was a bit lacking. I wanted to like this movie so much! I found the human storyline boring. The dog storyline was far more interesting, but they didn't spend enough time with it. It's worth a watch for the originality and cool premise, but I would recommend keeping your expectations low to avoid disappointment.
