Audience Reviews for Cybermutt
Cybermutt has all the elements of A Hollywood family film. Deceased parent. Bitter, grieving parent trying to get on with life. Lonely, only child whose only friend is loyal canine. Kooky scientist who turns dog into bionic marvel after accident. Evil genius bent on world domination who repeatedly attempts to kidnap dog. Bumbling evil sidekick. Beautiful femme fatale. It’s all here. And that is the film’s biggest problem – it’s too formulaic, too predictable. There aren’t any real surprises in the plot. The other disappointment was with the stunts and special effects. The potential existed to do some really cool things with a bionic dog, but all Rex does is jump through a window or two and use his thermal imaging to spot the bad guys. Oh, and he can hear really well and see really far – yawn. Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire) heads a cast of mostly unknowns, including Ryan Cooley (TV’s Degrassi: The Next Genration, Lexx) as Nino, Michelle Nolden (Deceived, Men With Brooms) as Nino’s mom, and Paulina Mielich (Pitstop) as the evil Erica. For the most part, the performances are exactly what you would expect from a film of this type, but Nelson and Nolden stand out and have a nice chemistry on-screen. Cybermutt is a fairly entertaining film for the youngsters and adults will probably find it just ok. It’s an innocent and inoffensive film that the whole family can feel good about.
