4.0 out of 5 stars Warning: you will need at least 5 Disney movies afterwards, 3 Aug 2012
This review is from: Plague Dogs [DVD] (DVD)
This, as many have stated, is a film for the older audience. Many recall it for it's cruel scenes of animal testing, especially as this is set before the Animal Scientific Procedures Act of 1986, but I feel it handles those themes very well. It doesn't feel like the film is trying to preach or tell you off about it, rather it serves as the spring-board for the characters and their adventure where they find that freedom also has its hardships, especially if you're a domesticated animal who just isn't cut out for living wildly on the moors.

In fact, I found that most things, such as Snitter's hallucinations and the building hunt for the dogs and their very likely end, were done in quite a subtle way and not shoved in your face. With perhaps the exception of that rather infamous shooting scene, but even that's a case of if you blink you've missed a good amount of it.

The animation is very good, the dogs are very well drawn, the characters are done very well and it's an ending which will very likely stick with you rather miserably for a little while. Have something on stand-by to cheer you up right afterwards. Personally I'd probably stop just short of calling it a great movie, but it's certainly a good one and I would recommend a watch of it because this is one of those films which proves that animation isn't just for kids, that it can be grown-up and mature as well.
