Rock Dog

A new breed of rock star


Rock Dog
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 wolves. To avoid distractions, the sheep dog leader forbids all music from the mountain. But when his son discovers a radio dropped by a passing airplane, it takes just a few guitar licks for his fate to be sealed: the boy wants to be a rock ’n’ roll star. Yet that means defying his father’s wishes, heading to the city, and locating a legendary, reclusive musician who needs to write a new song and fast. If they two work together, and defeat the wolves’ plot to take Snow Mountain, everything will be in tune. This film is releasing in 2D and 3D, this is the 2D version. Note that it is aimed at the very young viewers.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconRock Dog is amiable enough, but its second-tier animation and uninspired story add up to a movie whose meager charms are likely to escape all but the youngest and least demanding viewers.

CommonSenseMedia
Staff evaluation quote iconAnimated comedy is old-fashioned and fun; some peril.
