Rock Dog Movie Review – In Theaters Now
Rock Dog opened in theaters everywhere on February 24th. This animated film tells the story of Bodi, a Tibetan Mastiff who wants more for his life than to stay in his village and guard the sheep. The story is a simple enough story for younger children to follow. There are several funny scenes that will make audiences of all ages laugh. There is music throughout the film but it is not a musical. There is carton violence in the film but for me this opens up a chance to discuss real vs. pretend violence with your children. There are positive messages about independence, responsibility, and child-parent communication/understanding. If you are looking for a fun light film to watch with your kids, I would recommend Rock Dog. Check out the trailer for the film below and make plans to see it in theaters NOW!
Synopsis: For the Tibetan Mastiffs living on Snow Mountain, a dog’s life has a simple riff: Guard a peaceful village of wool-making sheep from the thuggish wolf Linnux (Lewis Black) and his rabid pack. To avoid distractions, Mastiff leader Khampa (J.K. Simmons) forbids all music from the mountain. But when Khampa’s son Bodi (Luke Wilson) discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: Bodi wants to be a rock ‘n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating the legendary – and reclusive – musician Angus Scattergood (Eddie Izzard), who needs to write a new song and fast.
If Bodi can put a band together, help Angus with his song, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, his life will be in tune. Bodi will become what he’s always dreamed of being: More than a dog … more than a Rock God… he’ll be a ROCK DOG!
