Ambitious ideas sometimes ruining Directors, although if we are talking about "Chain the dog", then there ambition went the Floor Soleto only use. Pretty aggressive power saving is associated with something threatening. Memorable and uneven crime Thriller tells the story of a the Trinity of hapless bandits, lying on the bottom some abandoned warehouse on which, it appears, dwells an angry attack dog. It could call a symbiosis of "reservoir dogs" and"cujo", if, of course, the creators originally planned to develop this topic. Despite so serious and intense agenda, "the watchdog" on turned out to be primarily a story about a few people enjoy Comedy or sentimental memories.

Paul Solet — Director, known for low-budget horror. According to everything interest the genre of the Director of stores and "watchdog" for it was perceived not otherwise attempt to move away from normal, but with observance of traditions. With one hand, "Dog" can be called a classic Thriller, with other side everything is built here on the study of characters. Incidentally, the latter realized through long monologues in which the characters are divided into errors or unexpected tales from their lives, adding something special to the situation they got. It is amazing but even the dog has a flashback!

What is frustrating, so is that most of the "watchdog" and is devoted to this painful, dark or comic stories. The performers were prescribed the whole "bricks" of dialogues and monologues, if the script printed out on paper, but during the cinematic embodiment of what is happening transformirovalsya almost not theatrical format, built on the dramatic experience of the actors. Through these stories and reveals motivation, the emotional component characters. Yes here for all of these experiences and the way somehow lost the plot. If you cut the opening (i.e., all stories dialogue, not relevant to the main story) characters and remove some superfluous scenes in the time of chases and fights with a dog, then you would fit short.

It is reasonable that points chases "the watchdog" does not sagging does not portray the threat clearly. The harsh reality is generally always the implication here is thus to confidently move away from a pretentious dialogues and metaphorical alternative solutions. But it does not always work out the way would have. "the watchdog" does not can decide what him to be: soulful criminal history, unusual Thriller or (which specify the final credits) with a call to the sympathy for the dogs. Like throwing from extreme not extreme project is to use.

The main roles in"the Dog" was getting famous actors, but not with them all so by far. The character of Malkovich — fountain clumsy aphorisms, that actor was mumbling in his senile manner. Brody and Banderas at times, on my opinion, overacted. Rory Culkin also not afraid of influential colleagues set well have embodied the image of a young addict.

The pervasive cruelty of this Thriller and comment abuse brothers smaller, in the end, how I thought, felt some kind of insincere. In the rest "watchdog" is an endless chain of anecdotes without emotional engagement and even the physical reality: the characters are constantly distracted, are lengthy dialogues, but you should give credit to the time from time get in a really tense situation. Almost every hard moment emphasizes atmospheric sounds and mood music with interesting style of shooting, especially in the moments of reflection of the main characters. However, it is to engage in the thing main plot with participation of the hero of Banderas so the feeling of chamber drama is undermined and the film becomes somewhat tedious, the right with the point of view of the narrative. Painful memories make all the characters (especially the hero Rory Culkin) to make the fateful decision, it is still not hiding the fact that the competence of the filming of "watchdog" so cannot saves the awkwardness of the scenario.

The novelty of the film and another disappointment from the big bosses of the cinema. Of course, I have in the Director, so as Paul Solet, who made this a film by his own script, even just beginning his career, but that that touches the cast in the face of Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, Antonio Banderas and others, they are once, saddened destroying all positive expectations viewing of this creation.

In the story a gang of criminals is on an abandoned warehouse, where they decide to take refuge on some time all anything, only same the room is evil fighting dog, hungry for fresh blood.

Simple in fact, the plot may on first sight seem to be an easy platitude, but here I want to warn you that the main message is hidden in a little other as a given topic is more than a mere afterthought. Here you will not see half an hour of continuous running heroes from an angry dog as stated in the trailer. Everything here is a little differently. The first half hour, we can safely say that the movie neither what, because nothing really happen. Heroes come, talking, walking and talking again on the Affairs of their immediate. Then we say main character and then, like, gone-gone, but soon, the picture begins to be interrupted by various digressions. It turns out that the film is divided into flashback characters, where even shows the history of the dog. And the interesting thing is that it flashbacks are a vivid and important part in the film, because everything else — this is utter rubbish, to be honest. Stories of heroes fascinate because they are interesting, dramatic and instructive, but running on empty the stock whether to distractions, whether the beats of the seat spectator viewing — I know. But personally me all it was somehow incompatible and awkward. Acting, if it can be called, leaves only one confusion and personal disappointment, so how does does it does not hurt and does not affect my interest of the audience. Particularly upsetting to the fact that thanks to Banderas, the film is generally perceived as some trivial, because he with his antics finally puts the film on the bottom. And as for the performances, then it is very simple. A common statement without any effort and features. This low-cost picture of middle category watchable, which can skip and save her precious time. But if you a big fan of one of the actors, enjoy.

After the recent film silence, with A. Banderas in the title role and suddenly I did cool, I waited for the release of this tape even more. And after he this picture almost all other roles played by famous actors in various sizes. It looked very curious to have a look at Banderas, Brody, Malkovich and R. Culkin in a film. So some expectations from him I was.

Not all of them come true, to regret, but the frustration of viewing was. Reading the description, my imagination start to draw in the head projected paintings and movie scenes. But it was not exactly as I presented. A gang of robbers is on the huge abandoned warehouse in trapped in the company the bloodthirsty beast, the size of the horse, to the same amazingly smart. Dog sees this Caudle criminals only fresh pieces of meat, the hunt promises to be hot.

In the film a lot of dialogue and hunting, flight, games in hide and seek, the battle between man and animal is quite small. And I this waited. It would be intense and dynamic interesting. And that I belong to the cons of the film. A lot of dialogue, but well they would not useless. Thus reveal the characters who they are doing what are, outlines the situation in the whole. What is from each of them has its own history. And they queue, different time, when given the opportunity, tell her. Their history is different, interesting, some funny, some very sad and tragic. And appears that they love dogs. About this is explicitly stated in the picture. And now one feisty dog trying to tear. Here after all, irony.

The characters are well written, they live these, acting is average, I don't know not particularly to go the extra mile wanted, whether required by the Director, the anything else. The same applies to Banderas, he it's crucial because of screen time at him a little, and there is nothing special about it is not showing.

Still something this film can teach. For example, what do not take on the case of addicts, they will definitely screw up. Or that the real monster is human, but he can make dog killer and consciously and purposefully. No animals are not guilty. For some as a tool. For money, for example. Even in such a cruel way as shown film. You need to be kinder to their Pets, refers to them with respect, not use them in their dirty purposes. In the painting was a place of kindness and mercy, it demonstrates the sad ending of the tape.

In General, despite the uneven script with its flaws, the film is worth watching at least maybe it will teach to love animals, refers to them more responsibility and respect. I tried that once and I hardly want to watch. Not like when the dogs have been badly treated.
