A Dog's Purpose

Adventure Drama


 

Tales from the lives of a dog who is reincarnated numerous times until he is reunited with his original owner.

"A Dog's Purpose" is an emotionally manipulative roller coaster. The inclusion of dogs ensures the filmmakers can play your heartstrings like a violin, even with the great lack of an actual, tangible storyline. The cast do their best with the stilted and cheesy dialogue they are given, but terrible CGI and dodgy green screen tricks cheapen the entire production. Animal lovers should steer clear, or risk drowning in their own tears. Woof.
