Movie Reviews

An interesting perspective
Pam W | Portland OR | 07/11/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I got a real view of what it was like to be at the eye of the aftermath of the storm. This movie made me think about the animals that were left behind.

I watched the movie with my husband and in-laws while on vacation. We all enjoyed it. We talked about it for 2 days. Very informative. Great narration. Interesting images. Makes me want to adopt a dog!!!!"
Very good overall

"Overall, this video gives the viewer a good idea of what it was like to have been involved in the greatest animal rescue mission in American history. You can feel the fatigue, frustration, sadness, and even happiness of the rescuers. These people are real heroes, leaving their jobs and families to do the dirty work that few people wanted to do or even cared about. My only complaint is that the video seemed to focus more on dog rescue. There is some token cat footage, but for the most part, this video is about dog rescue."

"I watched this film a couple of months ago and it is still on my mind. It was riveting, I didn't want it to end.
So many issues were touched upon. It is a must for all who care about rescue regardless of what country we live in. My heart goes out to the people interviewed. The trauma of their experiences will stay with them for the rest of their lives."
A deep and moving documentary that doesn't add anything new

"An incredibly concise overview of what went on in New Orleans during the animal rescue post Hurricane Katrina and Rita. The documentary manages to not pass judgment and doesn't exclusively point fingers, yet there is still an undercurrent of truth to the stories. The bare bones of the story of the dedicated volunteers are there, but the movie is a long way from being the specific story. Be warned though you will shed tears, if you do not you need to reexamine your humanity. My dog and I watched this film together - he was worriedly jumping up and straining his whole body to find out which serious atrocity was being committed and I must admit I bawled on quite a few occasions even though I have seen most of the footage and pictures before. The special features are always worth taking a look at - they are supplementary to the main story and are additional scenes of the rescues that took place by the Winn Dixie Rescue Group."
