A DOG'S PURPOSE MOVIE REVIEW
A dog's purpose is directed by Lasse Hallstrom and stars Dennis Quaid, Britt Robertson, Josh Gad, K. J. Apa, Juliet Rylance, John Ortiz, and Peggy Lipton. The plot of the movie is a dog looks to discover his purpose in life over the course of several lifetimes and owners. Going into this movie I wasn't sure what to think. The trailers for it were decent. I had heard about the boycott which made me more intrigued to see it. I thought this movie was just OK nothing special. Josh Gad was a good choice to voice the dog. The part I enjoyed most was when the dog is with Ethan as a teenager and eventually he meets Hannah. That part had some nice moments and I think both K. J. Apa who plays Ethan and Britt Robertson who plays Hannah did great in their roles. I did also enjoy at the end when the dog is reunited with the older version of Ethan, though it did feel like a Hallmark movie at times. Really I wish this movie was just about the dog and Ethan and Hannah. The other lives that the dog got I didn't care about at all. None of the actors in those scenes did a great job I felt and I was sort of getting bored. If they had cut out the other stories and just stuck with the dog and Ethan I would have loved this movie. So I would recommend this movie, but only if you have nothing else to do. 3 out of 5 stars for A dog's purpose. I hope you enjoyed my review and I hope it helped you decide whether to see the movie or not.
