Audience Reviews for Shiloh

This film is about a boy who finds a dog who is mistreated by its owner. Marty keeps the dog without telling one that he has the boy until he figure out what to do. Mart would do any thing to save this dog. Shiloh has a really good plot and good acting. This film made me cry at the end. If u likes a dog drama or a tearjerker, you should give this film a try.

Shiloh is a very fine family movie. There are some slow moving parts of the movie and lots of dialogue that might bog it down sometimes, but it is still an enjoyable movie. It has a great message and is very heartwarming, especially the ending as well as some sad parts. Blake Heron gives an inspiring portayal of Marty Preston, but the one person's performance I am impressed with even after all these years is Scott Wilson as the cold-hearted Judd Travers.

This Shiloh movie is about Marty Preston finding a dog that he LOVES and it belongs to judd and judd mistreats Shiloh Marty will find a way to keep shiloh even if he has to run away with him.
