Three career criminals are holed up in an abandoned warehouse with cops closing in on them and a killer dog on the loose. Starring Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, Antonio Banderas.
This film is Cujo on steroids. I think writer/director Paul Solet wanted to remind us what a dog can bring to our lives if we are lucky to be loved by one. It was hard to see the gruesome torture this dog faced and its desperate need for human affection. Because the film’s central character is the dog rather than the criminals, there are plot holes. Solet chose to focus primarily on the dog, rather than developing the multiple story lines of the surrounding characters. It is a gruesome tale, without redemption, making it a pass for me.
