Hats off to the chutzpah of the filmmakers behind this thoughtful if somewhat plodding effort, which will appeal largely to young (or young-at-heart) dog lovers cum budding war historians - not exactly a massive demographic.
I'm glad to report that I not only saw the tale of a soldier and his loyal pooch through to the end; at one point, I used a shirt cuff to blot away the wet eyes.
By the moment when George S. Patton shows up and perches a proud Stubby atop his tank as the battle draws to a close, I had long surrendered.
At 75 minutes, the resulting feature is the definition of slight, but just winsome and optimistic enough to justify itself.
[T]he film is sufficiently intelligent and entertaining to engage most grown-ups and, no kidding, fascinate history buffs.
"Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero" is a cute and scruffy movie.
The movie's vibrant animation and optimistic tone captures this heart-warming story in all its glory, and it will be a hard heart not to brim with joy as the film comes to an end.
Dogs have often been useful components of American propaganda films ... but Sgt. Stubby kicks it up a notch, placing a pooch in the center of all the action.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
Who among us can deny a good tale of man's best friend?
It makes me wonder why it took Hollywood so long to mine the naturally good-hearted true-life adventure story, and it is about a diminutive dog!
Produced by the animation house behind "Captain Underpants," "Sgt. Stubby's" animation looks simplistic on the surface, but is finely shaded with character enriching detail and subtle color.
