What to know

critics consensus

Rock Dog is amiable enough, but its second-tier animation and uninspired story add up to a movie whose meager charms are likely to escape all but the youngest and least demanding viewers. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

For the Tibetan mastiffs on Snow Mountain, a dog's life has a simple riff -- guard a peaceful village of sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, mastiff leader Khampa forbids all music. However, when his son Bodi discovers a radio that fell from the sky, it takes just a few guitar licks for the lad's fate to be sealed. Wanting to be a rock 'n' roll star, Bodi heads to the city to locate Angus Scattergood, a legendary musician who needs to write a new song.

Critic Reviews for Rock Dog

All Critics (57) | Top Critics (20) | Fresh (27) | Rotten (30)

  • This Chinese-American production may make decent television for children on a rainy day, but there's not enough thrilling action or comedy for the big screen.

  • Brannon composes the odd amusing sight gag, but homogenises his notionally eastern backdrop terribly ...

  • The definition of 'rock' here seems to be winsome be-yourself ballads with a smattering of guitar.

  • You'll long for a slightly smoother animation style (Pixar won't be quaking in their boots), but this surprisingly fun yarn will undoubtedly have youngsters reaching for the nearest guitar.

  • This draggy, computer-animated feature exhibits neither bark nor bite in its portrayal of a sheep-guarding, guitar-playing Himalayan mastiff who has his head perpetually in the clouds.

  • All this is every bit as silly and innocuous as its sounds, and it goes down, if not like honey, than like very finely spun cotton candy.

Audience Reviews for Rock Dog

  • Feb 23, 2017
    Rock Dog easily ends up being on the "Forget Me" list for movies not because it's likely it'll be forgotten by the time the next two weeks come, but it's cheesy enough to be forgettable by the week after this movie hits theaters.
