Rock Dog Movie Review
Rock Dog (2017 Movie)
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!
Ultimately, Rock Dog is a follow-your-dreams story where a young man has to learn about important life lesson and in doing so, he also teaches his reclusive rock idol about friendship and carrying for others. Not only does he get to understand his father’s wishes for him, Bodi gets to make new friends that help him defend his village from the thuggish wolves. My 5-year old daughter and my 10 and 12-year old boys loved the concept of the movie, the comic timing, and rock ballads helped made a connection between the characters and the story line.
If you are looking for a fun family-friendly movie to take the kids to this weekend, go see Rock Dog. Then come back and let us know which is your favorite part of the movie. 🙂
