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!
Full Review | Original Score: B

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.

While Logan Lerman, Gérard Depardieu and Helena Bonham Carter are the A-listers lending their voices, their co-star steals the show -- saying so much, without saying anything.

A fascinating, heart-warming and enjoyably educational movie that's a great, moving introduction to the War To End All Wars for younger children.

Delivered by rudimentary computer animation... Still, the central conceit is compelling.

The computer animation can be a little bland but the dialogue is sharp.

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.

Stubby is every bit the great animated hero, utterly lovable in the eyes of the tykes while also legitimately heroic for the war movie fans.

Frankly, "Sgt. Stubby" is a refreshing film [...]. It has none of the motor-mouthed hipster sarcasm found in recent studio animation.

There are those that may find Sgt. Stubby a little too twee for their tastes and it may not appeal to those who are not won over by doggy antics, but for those that are susceptible to a four legged friend, you will find Stubby a real heart-warmer.

... charming enough to reach the target demographic, yet the simplistic narrative approach doesn't really do Stubby justice.
April 18, 2018
Combined with some stiff, low-grade animation and questionable voice performances from the supporting actors, it's hard to recommend Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero in spite of its good intentions.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 17, 2018
Tame and tepidly told, but a genial and generally accurate account of a famous war dog/mascot.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
April 16, 2018
Is this merely an innocent, inspirational buddy flick or is it an Army recruiting tool targeting innocent tykes? Or both? Hard to tell.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

There are strong individual scenes, but the story structure is shoddy.

Animated film Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero tells marvelous tale of real-life canine military hero from WWI.

Interesting tale of plucky WWI dog has some war violence.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.
