Great Sequel To The First
28 May 2019 | by MovieBuff11732See all my reviews

A Dog's Purpose is about Ethan hoping that his granddaughter will do good and tells Bailey to watch after her. He/she goes through many things to get to CJ.

This movie was a piece of art. I really don't know why critics don't like to watch this movie series. The first one was outstanding and I thought the second was pretty solid. The acting was pretty good. Also the dog training was outstanding. There is vast amount of dogs on set and they nailed the training. Also the story was pretty solid too. It was pretty interesting to see the dog going through his life. The only thing I didn't think was that good was the focusing on the people. If you are going to see this movie you will want to see the dogs not the humans. Their where a couple scenes were it made sense. I just didn't like where they focused on the humans more than dogs though.

A Dog's Journey is a great movie and I would defiantly head out to theaters to go see this movie.
