Cute but uneven. Best for dog lovers.

Wilson really is the only reason an adult or any child other than the very youngest moviegoer could watch this well-meaning, easygoing family drama.

If you've followed the previous Shiloh films, then you'll be satisfied, if not overjoyed, by this final chapter.

If you are new to the series, I would suggest your starting with the original Shiloh, so far, the best in show.

An insipid tearjerker about a beagle with a middle-school daddy.

Offers exactly what you've come to expect from the series: Bland but wholly innocuous family entertainment featuring a cute kid and an even cuter dog.

Wilson ... makes this film, via grit of detail, a bit more than a Hallmark Special Retro Disney Walton sermon in values.

You won't find the pragmatic intelligence of Naylor's original stories here, but even cynics may be touched by the film's remarkably wholesome lessons about friendship, family and forgiveness.

It's a family film that deals with real problems and teaches real values, and yet is exciting and entertaining.

If Sandy Tung's film had flavor, it might taste like a week-old bagel.

... has more respect for the intelligence of the title dog than its audience.

Two major issues here: The boy, Marty (Jason Dolley), is a patronizing do-gooder, and the dog, a beagle-looking fella, doesn't do much that's special.

Saving Shiloh, the third in the dog-hero trilogy drawn from the Phyllis Reynolds Naylor books, may be naive and narratively simple, but it's prime fare for the always underserved family aud.

The latest film to be drawn from Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's best-selling young-adult trilogy about a frisky West Virginia beagle with a knack for bringing people together.
