There is no great epiphany; just a series of tedious, repetitive depictions of Bella yearning for family.

There's no denying the film has its heart in the right place. Just don't expect anything way too profound and be prepared with the tissues at the end.

It remains predictable yet effective. Predictable in its plot, effective in ways you wouldn't have thought.

Despite the cliches, the movie brings it home without may problems and is satisfying for the audience. [Full Review in Spanish]

An odd mix of warm family film, bleak drama and public service broadcast. (Even my pet-loving 7 year old, presumably its target audience, declared it "too sad".)

In short, a screensaver of puppies with a message about overcoming and unconditional love. [Full review in Spanish]

Those who like animals and a good cry need no more encouragement to share in Bella's adventures.

The acting is all solid and the message is heartfelt. It's a movie that reminds us to be grateful for man's best friend

I don't know what kids this movie thinks it's for, but they're going to be screwed up.

The film manages to be emotive, but it has a weak script, cast and aesthetic. [Full Review in Spanish]

Some kids may find the whole affair traumatic, particularly when the poor pooch finds herself dehydrated and chained to a corpse in the wilderness

The dog star who plays Bella is irresistible , a good thing since the script she's been handed isn't worthy of her canine charm. Kids ought to like it though.

I'm easily manipulated by kids and animals in movies... I think they did some parts of the movie very well for being a cheap movie that it is.

This movie is blunt as hell -- but it's still effective.

...without the nauseating political correctness and the narration, I would have rated it higher.

Dog lovers and kids might be able to look past "A Dog's Way Home's" various shortcomings, but altogether, this is just a decent idea that could have used some more work.

Cameron's tale grossly oversimplifies complex issues... to the point that it reduces much of the film's social justice message to meme-ready, empty-headed pap.
