      This is a great film for the whole family. We picked it up overMemorial Day weekend and it contains some really wonderful acting(Warning – I've been a huge fan of Dean Cain since Lois and Clark) withthe little girl and the dog stealing the show.

      The premise of the story is that the family must save their dog from acriminal that has framed it for a crime.

      Although the girl must play a bit of a junior detective to save theirdog, there is nothing in it (regarding the dog) that will make the kidscry or anything.

      The movie is put out by FoxFaith and does have some elements ofreligion but nothing that is "preachy" or anything.

      The producers put out a wonderful "Junior Detective Guide" to accompanythe film that your kids can play along with on Again – Igive it 9 out of 10 stars as it has something for the whole family.

      This was a wonderful movie for the whole family. There was no profanityand very little violence. If you like dogs, you'll like this movie. Myhusband said "I don't know why there can't be more movies like thatone". It kept all four of us, Mom, Dad, husband and me totallyinterested right up to the very end. I am usually doing some kind ofproject while we watch a movie, but my project didn't get muchaccomplished during this one. We all felt the acting was good and Acewas great. Police dogs have to be very well trained and this one reallyfits the bill. It would have been nice to know where the story wassupposedly taking place. We figured out it was in the State ofWashington because they talked about Spokane and Wenatchee but nevercould figure out where the Harding family actually lived. We alldefinitely give the movie a "Thumbs Up"

      I have to admit that any film that features a dog runs the risk ofturning me into a water works, because nothing gets me like dogs. Iordered this movie from On Demand because of the dog plot line andwhile it is a little corny and lacking in logical elements, I have toadmit I enjoyed it. And anyway, it was all worth it for the greatmoment when Ace comes running across the yard, breaks through the glassdoor and takes down the bad guy. I was cheering, which woke up my twopooches who then barked till the end of movie.

      It did seem like they went to put the dog down rather fast. I thinkthat you would be required to have a hearing or something first. Atleast, I hope so for the sake of all those canine doggies who risktheir lives to help people. And while German Shepherds aren't myfavorite breed, Ace was adorable.

      Watch it for the fun.

      I saw this on TV yesterday and I had no idea what it was about as Inever seen this film before so I decided to check it out.

      The movie is based on a true story and its about a policeman namedDan(TV SUPERMAN'S DEAN CAIN) who's dog Ace is framed for attacking acriminal. The owner of course has to try and prove that the dog isinnocent and as the dog is suppose to be put down the dog escapes andhe tracks down the criminal for what he has done to him.

      The film was really well put together and the story was nice. I likedthe dog as he was adorable and there was an odd scene where I would getvery emotional as a lot of animal movies are very emotional to watch.

      If you never seen this film before then check your DVD store near youor if its on TV again check it out its good.

      Fairly enjoyable movie, set in Washington, filmed in Canada.

      I like the story presented here but was really annoyed by some of thedialog and directing that had characters doing incredibly stupid thingsat times to advance the plot. But overall it is a feel-good movie.

      Dean Cain is K9 cop Daniel Harding, he and his "shield" Ace seem to bethe best. There has been a rash of domestic break-ins while homeownersare away, and the prime suspect appears to be a thug with a record,Mike Dopud as Torko. But they are having trouble pinning anything onhim. Plus he uses a trick to get K9 dogs off his trail.

      Canadian actress, young Britt McKillip is Julia, Daniel's daughter. Sheis really interested in investigative things but dad keeps dismissingher. Anne Marie DeLuise, another Canadian, is good as the mother, LillyHarding.

      SPOILERS: Ace gets on Torko's trail, but when the cops get there theyfind Torko's throat gashed and bleeding, apparently from being bittenby Ace. As this is strictly prohibited behavior, Ace is ordered putdown. But he escapes and eventually works his way towards home.Meanwhile Julia finds evidence of crimes in Torko's home, while policestudy video that showed Torko inflicted his own wounds, and Ace wascleared. Torko goes to Julia's home to harm them but dad and Aceindependently show up in the knick of time to subdue Torko. Dad learnsto pay more attention to his daughter and respect her judgment more.And, mom and dad take that long postponed honeymoon.

      I really cannot imagine Dean Cain without tights. Every time I sawDean, I thought about him busting out his Superman spandex costume andflying around with the dog. That would have been entertaining and madefor some good laughs. No, instead we are treated to the most unoriginaland fatally flawed dog movie I have seen in a long time.

      Dean has a dog, whom is his partner in the K-9 Unit of his local policeforce. He encounters a man, whom is believed to be a serial burglar.The dog takes him down, but gets blamed for an attack because there isno proof at the time to the crook and his involvement in the currentcrimes. You can guess the rest after that.

      The whole movie is corny. Why couldn't they view the video footageuntil so late in the movie? Why did they let him go so quickly whenthey suspected him in a wave of crimes? The police can hold people for24 hours at least until they view material in question. But no, it justgets ignored.

      Of course, everything turns out super in the end. There are hugs,awards given, and Dean Cain smiles. But I didn't see anything otherthan that that made it worth watching.

      Overall, this is a bad movie. Even Richard Karn and Kirk Cameron can doa better job than this. Dean Cain should be ashamed of himself. "F"
