Wall-to-wall voiceover... Lassie never had to explain herself.
August 17, 2019
A Dog's Way Home has a bit too much filler thrown in to pad out the runtime, and the segments at home feel very detached from the dog's journey back home, but it's a cute and heartwarming story that any dog lover will enjoy.

Predictably, the last act unfolds in full-on heartstrings-tugging mode...

While this type of fare is so old-fashioned it should be heritage-listed, it rarely fails to draw the full emotional involvement of any viewer predisposed to pooches.

A little subtlety would have worked wonders for A Dog's Way Home. Unfortunately, it is all bark and no bite.

There is no great epiphany; just a series of tedious, repetitive depictions of Bella yearning for family.
January 28, 2019
An odd mix of warm family film, bleak drama and public service broadcast. (Even my pet-loving 7 year old, presumably its target audience, declared it "too sad".)

In short, a screensaver of puppies with a message about overcoming and unconditional love. [Full review in Spanish]

I don't know what kids this movie thinks it's for, but they're going to be screwed up.

The film manages to be emotive, but it has a weak script, cast and aesthetic. [Full Review in Spanish]

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

...without the nauseating political correctness and the narration, I would have rated it higher.

Dog lovers and kids might be able to look past "A Dog's Way Home's" various shortcomings, but altogether, this is just a decent idea that could have used some more work.
January 14, 2019
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.
January 13, 2019
So long as the film keeps its focus on Bella and the animals she encounters...the picture is engaging...Unfortunately, there are on-screen human beings...too, and they're a terribly pallid lot.

It would've been nice had this irresistibly charming puppy been taught a new bag of tricks.
January 12, 2019
Truly puts the oof in woof.

A Dog's Way Home is weird because on one hand it fits the genre to a T, but on the other it's one ridiculous scene after another where absolutely nothing makes sense.
January 12, 2019
A Dog's Way Home caters to kids instead of challenging them, especially near the end.
January 12, 2019
When the story lags, these are the flaws that pester, and even the cute factor of "A Dog's Way Home" can't obscure its narrative weaknesses.
