This review is from: Karate Dog (DVD) it was eat I watched it when I came home .I was laughing so heard I cry very good movie
This movie isnât that bad. I mean itâs not very good or believable but it is a fun family TV movie. Itâs funny in some places and has an ok plot but the special effects are a little cheesy and fake looking. I think all the karate parts could have been taken out and it would have been MUCH better.
This movie is funny for a dog doing Karate and for Cho Cho's immitation of the Big Bopper. It turns dramatically sad very fast. Being the animal lover I am, it made me angry to see the evil scientist give the dogs that nasty Lot 99. If he wanted to take himself out, fine. But not the precious animals. I would have been twice as mad if it were the cats. It ended cute, but if one gets upset easily I suggest avoiding this one.
Where to begin with THE KARATE DOG, a terrible movie from beginning toend. What could of been a funny movie ends up being a snoozer. Or, isthat a woofer? Anyway, everyone is wasted in this movie. Now, I knowSimon Rex is no, well, he's not much of anything but he has been inbetter movies than this crap fest. Jaime Pressly, his love interest,must of graduated from C.A.C., CRAP ACTRESS COLLEGE, cause if she doeshave any acting talent of any kind she damn sure doesn't display ithere. Watching her act is like pooping razor blades, pretty damnpainful. No, I've never pooped razor blades but you know it would bepainful. Hell, it would probably kill you. And what's up with JonVoight? His performance as the bad guy is so over-the-top it ispathetic. I will admit, Cho-Cho is quite unique but even the Karate Dogcan't hold this movie together. I did laugh in this movie. It wasn't atanything that was said or done though. It was at the damn CGI, socrappy it made my eyes sore. They say not to lay down with sleepingdogs cause you'll wake up with fleas and I'll never lay down to watchthis movie again. Damn, something's biting me!!!
Not even worth watching for free...that is about the best way to put itafter watching this mess on TV for free. I know Simon Rex is NOT anactor...so why was he cast as a lead in anything? We are suppose tobelieve he is a detective? But the plot gets even BETTER!! He becomesthe owner of a dog who was a witness to a murder...and that dog canTALK!!! OMG...it gets even crazier! The dog lets tt he cop in on thefact that ALL animals can talk..in their own language, of course..butus humans just can't hear it. The detective decides to help this dogsolve his masters' murder..and goes bumbling around doing variousstupid things in an attempt add some humor to the mix. He meets apatrol cop who has plans to be detective some day too..and of courseshe jumps right in to help him out. Jamie Priestly is the eye candy forthis film...and that is about all she is good for here I am not sure ifshe is really a talented actress at all. Seeing an accomplished actorlike Jon Voight lower his standards to do this was almost a sad thing.He was suppose to be some amazing karate master? His moves were stiffand anything but realistic. Even his attempts at being tough was lame.Taking a concept that has been done before...a talking dog in amovie..was fine..but doing it on what must have been a low budget wasnot a good plan. Even the actors playing the children of Jon Voights'character were bad choices..they looked too old to be believable.Someone who was as skilled in martial arts as he was would have alsotaught his children the skills too at some point...in reality anyway.Not much was realistic or believable here...and I think even kids wouldbecome bored after a while. Seeing dogs dancing, playing music andspinning records was just way too much. I felt sorry for the real dogsin this and I hope they were paid well in top quality kibble...but Idoubt the director had that kind of money to spare...obviously he hadto know it would not make him any cash as a completed film either. Lowbudget stuff can be fun....but this one was more of a mess thananything.
To the person asking in another comment:the dog looks like a Briard. Ilove the dog. The dog is the reason to watch the movie. Who can resistwatching his fuzzy ears wiggle, and the real dog tricks! The karatestuff with the computer generated dog was pretty fake looking andhokey. I thought Jon Voight, Chevy Chase, and the guy who played Fowlerdid good jobs. Some parts are worth watching more than once, such aswhen Fowler trips the dog catcher, and when the dog is lowered in theharness. It's nice to see a movie that doesn't have foul language,gore,or nudity in it. Just a nice family movie without a lot of blowingthings up. Too bad this site doesn't list the real name of the dog,since he is the star of the movie.
This movie is all wrapped up in about the first hour and half. A dogthat talks karate chops a gang that has killed his master. After that,he goes around and makes terrible jokes then sniffs other dogs butts.Oh, he also chases cats. No surprises and even my dog wouldn't watchthis stupid movie.I understand that Chevy Chase could waste time in another stupid movie,but Jon Voight? I had a lot of respect for his acting career until Isaw this chop suey pile of trash. In this movie he plays some southernAsian guy with a really bad dress on. I am not not sure what is goingon and his hair is funny too.It is more painful to watch than a dog bite.
One of the best movies i have seen in a long time. It held suspense, itwas funny and in a way sad when the dog got shot.It was family oriented, all could watch. It kept us on edge, and couldnot leave the movie. Karate dog was a great name for this movie, theway the dog moved was so real. It's talking was real, and the way heeven mouthed the words. The detective work was unpredicted, and kept mewondering if they could do their job. The other animals made it morereal. Animals make the movie, i believe, and it did my heart good tosee a man in a muzzle as they put on dogs. it looked well on him, andthe dog guard was even better.
review ...um...one wordRetardedbut of course that would be an insult to retarded peoplethe high point in the movie I would have to agree is when Jon Voight said "you want a peace of me dog", the sad thing is that the dog is the best actor.(all this cuz I have to use at least 30 words)Don't watch it!!!!!!
O.K., If I were two I would have thought it was a piece of genius, butI'm like, over the age of five so It was cheesy. I laughed like...once. It wasn't really a laugh it was more of a huh. The CGI wasterrible, did you ever watch Misie? Well they made that to, which aseveryone knows was the biggest piece of crap to ever walk the planet.The two main peeps were supposed to be in love, but when they weretogether it was just so extremely cheesily planned that you LOL. I knowthe lines were intended to be funny, but they were all built off ofprevious actually funny movies. Every moment was absolute torture. Itdefinitaly wasn't blockbuster worthy. It was very boring, don't wasteyour time watching it.
I will bet anyone a million dollars that the only reason Pat Morita didthis movie was because he was getting paid a crap load of money (likethe Next Karate Kid).Just plane and simple, this movie is a steaming pile of dog feces. Ihope whoever made this movie gets eaten to death by Kujo. And I alsohope whoever made this movie reads this so he can see what a giantdouche he is. This movie is basically time you will never get back inyour life.I would rather watch The Next Karate Kid or the new Karate Kid (2010)then watch this crap.In the words of spill.com, this is a F*CK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
How my ratings work:5 - I really liked/loved it4 - I liked it3 - Could've been better/worth a look2 - Just didn't live up to the potential1 - Simply awfulShame on you Bob Clark! SHAME ON YOU! And before I get a lot of hating I'd like to say, yes I'm aware that he died and that is a tragedy and it's not to be taken lightly. BUT SWEET FANCY MOSES! This is the man who directed A Christmas Story, one of the greatest Christmas films of all time. This is the man who directed Porky's, one of the quintessential teen comedies of the 1980's. Black Christmas, considered the first slasher film. He's done movies that have gotten actors Oscar nominations. How could you go so low!? And John Voight! FOR SHAAAAAME! You're a good actor, and Oscar winning acotr. You're a better actor than you're freakin daughter (Angelina Jolie for those that don't know. And that's right I think she's overrated as an actress, she's done some good things but they are few and far between). As for Chevy Chase...well, given how his career was bad at this point I'm not really that surprised. Jamie Pressly you did My Name Is Earl, you're so much funnier than this. PAT MORITA! MR. MIYAGI! OH LORD! I just can't believe that this movie got made, that anyone would think this was a good idea. Oh it's good clean family fun. Oh sure, if you consider the strange romantic undertones between the cop and the dog, the killing of an old man, and so many other wrong things.
Karate Dog changed my life. I must know what Karate Dog is up to now. Iknow he must be fighting crime, and kicking the crap out of bad guyssomewhere. He is amazing. My favorite part was the dog party (not the one at the end). My secondfavorite part was Jon Voigt racing the dogs on the track. My thirdfavorite part was Mr. Miagi's role as Karate Dog's sensei. My fourthfavorite part was when Karate Dog was feeding lines to DetectiveJackass when he was on his date with Jaime Pressley. My fifth favoritepart was when Karate Dog and Jon Voigt were fighting on the roof, andKarate Dog KICKED HIS ASS!! My sixth favorite part was when Karate Dogwas being interrogated by the Police, and remained silent!! HA HA! Myseventh favorite part was when Karate Dog was driving the Detective'scar and crashed it into a pond! My eighth favorite part was Jon Voigtdrinking the neon juice and acting all young and vibrant. Funny stuff!My ninth favorite part was when the babies tried to steal the van fromthe day care center...oh wait. Thats from my SECOND FAVORITE MOVIE,SUPERBABIES: Baby Geniuses 2. See my review there, its great.My ninth favorite part from KARATE DOG, ha!, was EVERY time Chevy Chasesaid something funny. Which was always. My tenth favorite part was whenthey blew up all those computers by inserting a CD. And closelyfollowing that, actually, before that, I enjoyed Karate Dog going inthere mission-impossible style to copy the CD in the first place.Need I say more? Come on folks. This is comedic genius. Every time itis on Showtime or HBO I watch it, eyes glued to the screen. Andseriously, when is Karate Cat coming out?
I have to admit I'm a sucker for movies with dogs in them,since I am a true dog lover. I found Karate Dog to be just adorable. When the movie first starts Cho Cho's (Karate dog) master is murdered, and we learn that Cho Cho can talk. Yes, it is a tad sad when the master dies, but it gets better fast. When the police arrive, in comes LAPD computer expert Peter, who is not respected by his peers. Cho Cho was told to talk to only the one who seeks the truth, and Peter did. He follows him home, reveals himself to him and after Peter gets over the shock they become partners in solving his masters murder. This is where all the action begins. This really is a very cute story that you would be happy to sit and share with your children. It has adventure, humor and a good storyline and believe me the ending is priceless. We giggled through this one, and I believe you will too. Well worth a night or a saturday afternoon. Enjoy!
For an obviously medium budget movie,almost every dollar was spent well.If you like animals,comedy and a well acted written/acted script,per budget.Well then,no question,this is a must see.
A very cheesy movie, I watched it out of boredom with my brother. We pretty much watched it to make fun of it. But the romance? Come on a police woman? I never liked romance in movies they always ruin it, but this one was one of the worst. A big flop the movie, the action scenes were terrible, I only rated it 2 stars because it was so bad it was a little funny. Hope this review was helpful.
Alrhough filled with familiar cliches, characters and special effects, THE KARATE DOG should provide an entertaining ninety minutes of family entertainment. Simon Rex (the last two SCARY MOVIES) stars as a computer savvy policeman who finds himself in possession of a talking karate dog (voiced by Chevy Chase). Together they plan to solve the murder of the dog's beloved owner (the late Pat Morita) at the hands of corporate mogul Jon Voight (deliciously hammy). All this while falling in love with fellow officer Jaime Pressly. The jokes are not tremendously funny but the movie's so warm-spirited and all the dogs and cats as cute as can be, so forget the plot and just enjoy the merriment.
SFPD Computer Expert Peter Flower (Simon Rex) investigates the murderof an man (The late Pat Morita), what seems to be a murder/robberycase. But Peter discover that the man, who recently murder has an dognamed Cho Cho (Voiced by Chevy Chase). Which Cho Cho could actuallytalk to Humans and he's the only witness to the crime. Cho Cho feelsthat his master was up to something and Peter tries to help Cho Cho tosolve it. So Cho Cho could avenged his master's murderer. But Cho Choand Peter finds themselves an strange case that involves Dogs on therace track and an millionaire (Jon Voight), who thinks who found thefountain of young by using Drugs and Dog DNA! Directed by the late Bob Clark (Black Christmas, A Christmas Story,Porky's) made an silly comedy that aimed at Kids. Although thelow-budget of the film is hurt by most of the CGI effects on the film.An bigger budgeted was certainly needed in this film as well. But it'sChase as the voice of "Cho Cho" makes it bearable. Chase certainlygives most of the laughs in this one. Rex is likable enough in themovie and he has an hilarious sequence with Jaime Pressly in therestaurant scene. Only Voight seems to be embarrassed with his film andhe gets goofier by the minute with his bizarre performance. WhichVoight must paid well to be in this movie and he got to work with Clarkagain on the "Baby Geniuses 2"!The Canadian DVD has an fine Pan & Scan (1.33:1) transfer and an decentDolby 2.0 Surround Sound. The movie works best during the first halfand This is certainly not the best work of Clark's or his worst. Butit's decent enough and it is certainly better than "Baby Geniuses".Voight reunited with his co-star Ron Lester from "Varsity Blues" Voighteven executive produced this oddball movie. (** Â½/*****).
This movie is a great family film. Looking for something clean, fun andentertaining for the whole family, this movie will serve the purpose.It is by no means a riveting drama or a hilarious comedy. However, itwill be fun for the kids and mildly entertaining for adults. Just bythe tittle you should get the idea that the movie is not a serious one.The dog in this movie who talks and does karate is bent on helping acop find the killer of his previous owner. The cop gets himself intoall kinds of trouble as he struggles to produce evidence. Of course aminor plot is his relationship with a female cop who he infatuatedwith. The dog of course tries to help him with this as well. I guessyou will have to watch to see how everything turns out.
This review is from: Karate Dog (Amazon Instant Video) I love this movie. It's so funny and great to watch if you in the dumps. I just love cho-cho. He's just thecutest dog I ever saw.
