Movie Reviews

Comedy Turned into Horrifying Drama
Kim Ewell | Kalamazoo, MI | 01/07/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is funny for a dog doing Karate and for Cho Cho's immitation of the Big Bopper. It turns dramatically sad very fast. Being the animal lover I am, it made me angry to see the evil scientist give the dogs that nasty Lot 99. If he wanted to take himself out, fine. But not the precious animals. I would have been twice as mad if it were the cats. It ended cute, but if one gets upset easily I suggest avoiding this one.

"Alrhough filled with familiar cliches, characters and special effects, THE KARATE DOG should provide an entertaining ninety minutes of family entertainment. Simon Rex (the last two SCARY MOVIES) stars as a computer savvy policeman who finds himself in possession of a talking karate dog (voiced by Chevy Chase). Together they plan to solve the murder of the dog's beloved owner (the late Pat Morita) at the hands of corporate mogul Jon Voight (deliciously hammy). All this while falling in love with fellow officer Jaime Pressly.
The jokes are not tremendously funny but the movie's so warm-spirited and all the dogs and cats as cute as can be, so forget the plot and just enjoy the merriment."
Just A Good Relaxing Movie!

"I have to admit I'm a sucker for movies with dogs in them,since I am a true dog lover. I found Karate Dog to be just adorable. When the movie first starts Cho Cho's (Karate dog) master is murdered, and we learn that Cho Cho can talk. Yes, it is a tad sad when the master dies, but it gets better fast. When the police arrive, in comes LAPD computer expert Peter, who is not respected by his peers. Cho Cho was told to talk to only the one who seeks the truth, and Peter did. He follows him home, reveals himself to him and after Peter gets over the shock they become partners in solving his masters murder. This is where all the action begins.
This really is a very cute story that you would be happy to sit and share with your children. It has adventure, humor and a good storyline and believe me the ending is priceless. We giggled through this one, and I believe you will too. Well worth a night or a saturday afternoon. Enjoy!"

"I would have wanted to know a little about the movie. I didn't know much about it until my son watched it. I saw some of the DVD with my son. It was good. I was impressed with the way the character was trying to make things right with others. This movie had some moral values and showed how to get along with others in a small way. This was not too violate for kids. I would recommend this to others that have children that like dogs. It is for the whole family to enjoy."
