The Plague Dogs

This wonderful movie is a must see for almost everyone. It tells the tale of two dogs who escape from a laboratory and are pursued when itís believed that the dogs are carrying the bubonic plague. Brilliantly animated with an engrossing storyline, The Plague Dogs is a tale that will touch the hearts of all that watch it with its very human piece of storytelling. 

The video on this release is a delight to watch and the fact that itís the extended release of the DVD makes it even more so. The animation style is wonderful to watch and it is obvious that a lot of work was put into it. 

Something for you to realise is that this movie is emotionally wrenching to watch so be prepared for some pretty full on viewing if you take the plunge and watch. I found myself in tears on more than one occasion at the plight of the animals featured, especially when you started associating with them the further one got into the movie. 

Most of the movie is pretty hard hitting and takes the moral high ground with respect to cruelty to animals and doesnít let up. There is not a human character in the film to identify with and the things that are done to the animals makes you quite sad to realise that this really goes on. 

Iíd have to say that this is a must watch film, just watch out for the younger audiences who will no doubt be traumatised by this flick and then ask you the hard questions about human cruelty to animals. By younger audiences, I would think anyone over 11 would have no problems with the movie but they would still find it distressing. 

This is the extended version of the film and personally I donít see the value in putting both on here. There is also a trailer featured as an extra. 

High Recommendation.
