Book-based dog tale has some emotional intensity.

Common Sense Media

This is the rare sort of family movie that actually strives to engage its audience.

Full Review… | August 21, 2006

Excellent family drama that celebrates not only a young boy's deep love for a dog but the need to stand up for what you believe in no matter what.

There's only so many scenes of a boy being licked in the face by a dog that one can take.

Audience Reviews for Shiloh

The book was good as well as the movie Chad to Travers was not nice to his dog but Marty runs into the dog that he names Shiloh and it changes Marty's life and chooses to compromise with Judd to Travers to see if he can keep the dog. Marty is lovable to animals. And Judd is not nice to animals. This movie can teach you how to be loyal and kind to all things. Marty makes a good role model in this movie that family will enjoy to see

Shiloh is a very fine family movie. There are some slow moving parts of the movie and lots of dialogue that might bog it down sometimes, but it is still an enjoyable movie. It has a great message and is very heartwarming, especially the ending as well as some sad parts. Blake Heron gives an inspiring portayal of Marty Preston, but the one person's performance I am impressed with even after all these years is Scott Wilson as the cold-hearted Judd Travers.

I had to watch this movie and Because of Winn Dixie for school. I don't really like movies like this but this was much better then Winn Dixie.
