Critic Reviews for A Dog's Way Home

All Critics (79) | Top Critics (19)

Wall-to-wall voiceover... Lassie never had to explain herself.

September 13, 2019 | Full Review…

It touches on ongoing problems in modern society such as homelessness and the postwar physical and psychological suffering of soldiers, and on the growing use of animal-based therapy.

March 1, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

There's not much variation on the old themes here. What's new is the film's definition of community and family.

February 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A decent, and very old-fashioned, family film.

Some kids may find the whole affair traumatic, particularly when the poor pooch finds herself dehydrated and chained to a corpse in the wilderness

January 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Cameron's tale grossly oversimplifies complex issues... to the point that it reduces much of the film's social justice message to meme-ready, empty-headed pap.
