Common Sense Media

Emotional dog tale features drinking, violence, and loss.

It's guaranteed to bring tears and laughter to popular audiences, and those who turn up their muzzles at it are on a canine to nothing.

Even hardened blokes will struggle not to choke back a few tears at the end.

This is London

Pretty sappy stuff, but the film-makers use knowing humour to snare more cynical viewers and are well-served by the cast.

I do like a good dog in a family movie.

Heart's in the right place, but very broad and quite irritating too.

Hollywood's own family fare could probably learn a little from this sweet-natured and surprisingly affecting Aussie hit.

Guardian [UK]

Well, it's a doggy story for humans, anyway: an avowedly true-life tale that comes across like a well-meaning PG-certification of the real world.

Shadows on the Wall

Shamelessly enjoyable, this raucous Aussie movie keeps us laughing - and ultimately sniffling back the tears - as it recounts an urban myth.

Daily Express

All this is relayed in flashback and the storytelling is a tad episodic but it's exuberantly told, with some engaging characters and colourful visuals. Dog-lovers may even find themselves wiping away a tear or two.

Enjoyable, emotionally engaging doggy drama with likeable characters, a nicely structured script, a strong sense of place and terrific performances from a superb ensemble cast.

It's not quite as blatant a tearjerker as some of its pooch-based predecessors, and frankly, it's all the better for it.

The humans are a pretty generic, but the dog is a charmer.

A heartwarming tale about man's best friend.

The human characters are rather sketchily drawn and the storytelling follows a blandly 'uplifting' path.

A film with as much substance as a very long beer ad.

Honolulu Star-Advertiser

Miners are telling Red Dog stories, and so it's essentially a series of personal flashbacks that grow larger with the retelling, exactly the way mythology gets kickstarted.

I was immensely moved by "Red Dog", and I can't picture a movie-goer who won't be. It's wonderful.

Rough-hewn as it is, it's emotionally satisfying.

What matters here is the heart, and only a true cynic would find Red Dog totally unenjoyable.
