White God on Netflix!

Credit: rottentomatoes.com

There’s this film on Netflix called, “White God” and it’s a mixture of Cujo, Chappie and Planet of the Apes. It’s Cujo in that it has rabid dogs, Chappie in that these dogs were sweet and innocent before their circumstances changed and it’s Planet of the Apes in that there is a dog uprising. You may or may not have passed over this film, but you should definitely look it up if you haven’t seen it. This girl named Lili has a dog that she loves named Hagen. He follows her everywhere, but nobody wants the dog around and everyone tells her to get rid of him. Everyone has a problem with the dog, including Lili’s father, but she begs him to let her keep him. He’s okay with keeping Hagen, even though something bad happens, until the manager of the apartment complex tells him that he has to get rid of the dog. Lili’s father decides to get rid of Hagen by abandoning him. Hagen tries his best to find Lili, but can’t.

Hagen quickly finds out that humans are terrible and bands together with other dogs left out in the street that have been picked up by animal control. The dogs have an uprising and Lili is the only one who can save the day and remind Hagen of what he used to be. The acting is great and the dogs are extremely well trained. It’s part what the heck am I watching and part I have to see where this goes. The revenge part doesn’t happen until the end, but the story is pretty decent. It might seem like it drags a little bit, but it’s worth it. 6.5/10
