RED DOG (2011)

STAN

Herald Sun - Hit - - UP STREAM -

This su­perb Aussie all-ages crowd-pleaser gets ev­ery­thing right. The ti­tle char­ac­ter, a cop­per-hued kelpie who be­came a liv­ing leg­end in WA’s Pil­bara re­gion in the 1970s, is played by a re­mark­ably ex­pres­sive pooch named Koko. The ad­ven­tures of the re­doubtable Red Dog (and his hi­lar­i­ous neme­sis, Red Cat) un­fold as all rip­ping yarns should, with a sly wink and a steady hand. Go with this over the se­quel ev­ery time.
